R.I.P. Computer

So it looks like my computer has bought the farm and is no longer with us. There are some sales going on around me, so hopefully I can find something this weekend. I must admit, I feel very lost without it. How sad is that?

Keep your fingers crossed that I’ll be up and running again by Monday.
