hard drive update

After a month of searching on Ebay for the exact same drive as mine, I finally found it. I had to have the seller verify the assembly # on the controller board during the auction, and the first couple times he told me the wrong number. So I sent him an ascii art drawing of it and finally got him to give me the right one. I thanked him for his patience, and then placed an outrageous bid dwarfing all other bids and won the drive the next day. It just arrived an hour ago in the mail! So I'm excited, I'm going to start unscrewing the board now, and switching it out with my old one. It looks like I will get all my data back, but I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch :)

Oh, and I saw the vagina monologues last night, very cool. I need to do more cultural things with my time, that was so fun.

Ok, I can't find an "ecstatic" smiley, but IIIITT WOOORKEDDD!!! All my data is back =) =) =) Of course, I was getting along just fine without it for the past month; but now I have back all the things I really missed, and a lot of stuff like stories and poetry I wrote and details about my life from the past year. I feel complete once again. And it only cost me a total of $64 to get everything back; not bad at all considering data recovery can be anywhere from $500-$3000. I want to give a big hug to the guy in Canada who sold me his drive. xxxoooxxxoxoxox

And now, my roommates want me to drive them to Mardi Gras in New Orleans this weekend. I think I'll have to say yes to that, I feel like partying now.
