The IRS wants $800 from me.
There's $400 needing paid on traffic tickets that I never received in the first place.
There's being oncall the last 1.5 weeks (not over the holiday thank god) and getting a call every damn day except for this morning.
And my computer just dropped dead.

If you were thinking of getting me something for christmas, $ towards the new computer will be helpful.

UPDATE:

Touched base with wurmfood on what's going on and he thinks it may well just be that the harddrive- which I'd been meaning to replace in this box at the very least anyways- got hosed by the power surge. I have another hard drive around the house, so I will check on that option when I get home.

I hope, I hope, I hope.
  • We still have custody of your old hardware; will it be of assistance in the meantime?

    We're too poor to contribute moneys, but if having a geek run around and buy parts and put things together for you would be any help, Kai would be happy to Santa that part. Faster than mail-order, and saves you the couple hours of tedious hardware setup.
    • wurmfood suggests my problem may just be a fried hard drive- I'm going to check that, first and foremost. If that's it, I'll stick it out with this box for another 6 months - yr.
  • Just so you know, the IRS takes payment plans.

    • It depends on the situation, but it's an option worth exploring.
      • their letter mentions it, so I'm suspectin' that payment arrangements are a possibility.
        I just hate the idea because they'll probably throw usurious interest on top of it.
    • yeah, and I figure that's the tactic to take. *sigh* just annoying that I have to.
  • will do.
    • stay tuned to this space for further developments, actually- I'm gonna try swapping the HD, as the symptoms of dysfunction seem to indicate HD death.
  • (no subject) -
    • I get something of a discount on Dell hardware myself, actually, being an employee of the great satan, so. I'm not going Apple, but I may well be lazylazy and go Dell.
  • Oh dood!

    Gotta get together with you stat then...*hug* All else fails, I'll mail you the check (though I have to rewrite it as it's dated several months old :( )..

    • Oh right! See, this is why I posted that, to remind myself there's $ that people owe me. *heh*
      • *LOL* Too true.

        Well, then, we gotta get this show on the road, sunshine. Besides, I want QT with my 'Daddy'. *giggle* *flashing back to a few certain wacky social events*
  • Oh, baby.
