Guess I'll give you all an update. They day after I brought it in, I left for a week long family reunion in N. Wisconsin. Went well, all things consitered. 5 generations of family managed to show up, there were about 30 of us. Think I was there for a total of 2 hours, in which I ate before hauling my butt back out into the woods on one of the atv's or by foot. Broke the LCD screen on my camera while I was up there. I'm getting a new one in a few weeks. I'll try and post a few pics I took up there in a few days. My webserver is being weird again.
Day or 2 after I got home, got my comp back from Office Depot. I'm not at all unsatisfied with the work they did. They didn't reinstall the OS, but I was trying to avoid that if at all possible. I don't have a floppy to back up my system, and burning it onto cd is to big of a pain, not to mention, I'm not entirely sure how to do it. There prices, while steep, I was more then happy to pay. IT was indeed a virus problem, as I suspected when I brought it in. Figure I got it loaded with them, but oh well. Thats the way my life works most days.
I could have saved the money, and boughten a new tank yes, but I'm currently trying to figure out how to unload about half a dozen of them, and stock the rest, so I'm not to eager to get anymore.
Within two days after getting back from the family reunion, I got a job, and have been working almost everyday since. Think I've had 2 days off out of about 15. I'll have a few more Wednesday and Thursday. It's not a great job, but it pays, and I only have to work like 4 hours at a time at the most.
All in all, I'm not at all unhappy about the way it turned out. It was kind of bad timing, but it worked out in the end.
