I was looking at my To Do List after taking a shower thinking, "Huh, I should call Dell before I start my work." I was thinking it would be one of those quickie, "Oh, yeah, we've got to send a guy to you. Give us a free day and that's that." Hour tops.
No. Apparently my audio works fine hard-drive wise, but the Operating System isn't working. So my harddrive needs to be wiped and everything re-installed.
Which means copying my stuff over to Stu's external hard-drive. Now this would be FINE and NO PROBLEM if I hadn't already DELETED all the stuff from it because they said it was all fine! So now I'm RE-copying my stuff to his hard-drive so Dell guy can take control of my laptop again, clear it and reinstall. Then I will spend a good amount of time getting everything BACK onto my computer and re-installing the programs I really like, probably around 10, not a huge deal.
But still. This was supposed to be a work day. I was supposed to be finalising my mammals poster, looking up the Shoveler duck some, getting more sources and organising the Scots Pine presentation and getting sources for my Chobham Common report since those are all due within a few weeks. And then I was hoping to look through my Humans assessment and maybe get a head start on my Soil Seedbank report (probably not those two since they're not due in until after spring break) and then start hopefully going through Exploiters since we have an exam on SOMETHING week 10.
I'm stressed and nervous and worried and angry, and now I have to have my computer wiped and re-done. Frak.
I'm going to go chill and read a chapter of my book with my friends around, because I need that right now.
