Thanks to everyone who spread the word about my plight and for the donations. I mean it. I didn’t ask for them, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t need them.
The good news:
While I am not back to fully operational, I have a promising PC to check out this week-end.My friends gathered and helped me sift through the internets and the craig’s list equivalents in Germany and it looks like an amazing machine at a price I can potentially, barely, afford thanks to the support I have received.
If the benchmarks don’t fry it, I may be back to my regular productivity on Monday. Super frustrating to work with my antediluvian laptop.
Hope you all have a great week-end!
