My computer has been fixed!!! My brothers friend managed to splice two power adapters together, and now I can charge my computer using my own power cord. I told him that if he could get me a power cord, I would buy a new hard drive, and keep my computer. Otherwise I was going to sell it. So I bought a hard drive, and it only cost me $80 or so to fix (for the hard drive, and I gave Armin a few dollars for work.) I am so happy that I have it back.

On and on

They say that bad things come in threes, but I think I have passed that. Apart from buying new tires, buying new rims, cutting my thumb, and having my hours cut, my computer has died. I got a Toshiba laptop the end of my first summer in Jasper, and I have had non stop problems with it. The SD card reader went, the sound went, the disk reader went, the power adapter died. Some of these were solved by wiping the hard drive. It must have been wiped a few too many times though, as now the hard drive is dead. One of Alec's friends (that works at CCI looked at it and said it was FUBAR (pardon the language). So now I have to find a new laptop. I will never ever buy anything Toshiba again, due to the amount of problems I have had. If you know anyone that wants a crap computer for parts, let me know. It has no hard drive and no power adapter.
