i'm using my other computer. the one that couldn't get internet. i reinstalled windows xp and now i'm online :D so far so good. right now i got 7GB, but i know that'll change dramatically, since i still need to get my stuff back. but hey, better than nothing.
i'm happy again :D :D :D
so i'm slowly returning. but i'll be fine.
and THANK GOD no more sucky display driver. the one that made streaks across the screen. my eyes are used to the streaks so they automatically see them. lol!
