Quiet Time

So my brand-new computer died on Sunday. I'm more pissed than you can imagine - I was in the middle of writing a big paper and I had just written 4 weeks worth of Cheap Eats posts for Bostonist when it died. I'll be getting a new hard drive soon, and hopefully I'll be able to salvage everything from my old hard drive, but until then, Dell is on my shitlist and I won't be posting.

Ouch! My heart goes out to you! My sister's brand new De!! from He!! just crashed this weekend as well. Having gone through the seventh gate of De!! one too many times, (otherwise known as calling the hotline at two in the morning, and chatting with Mike from Bombay) I decided to put all my money on the altar of Steve. I would be remiss to omit the fact that Macs have their quirks as well. The difference being that the errors and "things that go bump in the night" get resolved in the world of Mac. Ah, but that's another story. I'll wish you all the the best. Looking forward to hearing more from you soon. Now, I'm off to the kitchen to whip up a nice Armenian dish to take to my husband's aunt ;-)

Thanks, Sue! It's good to hear from you!

Yeah, my last two Dell's were great, with nary a problem. Sadly, this will be the last thing I EVER buy from them again.

So... what did you make?
