Not much to report for this update...A hidden "calibration year" field has been added to all my character bios (it's there so I don't screw up and list a character as older/younger than they should be =P), and some minor changes were made to the Wishlist, Carbunklian Character Appearances (text file in the "Artwork Additions" section of the Wishlist), and the Character Artwork page.
It's Friday...But did I have any bad luck today? Not at all, and it's the other way around in my case...I just got my copy of Paint Shop Pro 8 from UPS today (they also came yesterday, but it was just to deliver stuff for the local Lions Club - Got my hopes up for nothing that day, but I knew it'd come soon if I was patient ;P)...I thought it wouldn't come in till at least the following Monday =)
Not only that, but I thought I'd be paying $79 for it after sending in the $30 mail-in rebate, as stated on their site at the time I purchased it (it's $109 before the rebate, and worth every penny, IMO)...Apparently something was changed, though, because when I called to order, and they saw I was listed in their database, the cost was dropped to $49. It's as if the rebate were worth twice as much...And I didn't have to send anything in, either! =D
I am now officially a graduate of ITT Technical Institute...I can't really say anything else for this update =D
My last day of school was on Wednesday... =)
...And I'll be graduating a week from then (on the 11th)! =D
Yesterday, my computer was making a whirring noise, and earlier today, I had it taken to Armstrong Microsystems to get it fixed. Turns out it was the video card's fan that was causing the problem (it had to be replaced) - I guessed it would've been the fan, but not that one O.o
Not only was the fan problem fixed, but I also made sure the Hard Drive Activity LED would be fixed as well (it never lit up ever since I got the computer, and that problem by itself was too minor to justify making a trip to the computer shop to get it repaired) - Now, after six months, I finally have that (rather minor but annoying to me) problem fixed...Everything's in working order now, and I didn't have to pay a cent for the repairs, as the computer's still under warranty for the next year-and-a-half ^_^
It seems one of my counters is no longer working, and hasn't been for some time =/ I've now removed it from my index page until further notice.
