Steve and Mike worked together and managed to bring our computer back to life. Unfortunately, we lost everything. I had previously tried to burn all of my pictures onto a cd, but for some strange reason it didn't work. Ah, well. They're only pictures. At least I put some here on the blog.
We are now starting the process of going through and putting things back on the computer. May take a while, especially seeing as I can't find all of the disks for things we had on it. Luckily, they are easy enough to get.
So thanks Steve and Mike! Nice having a computer back again. Yes, I admit it. I'm addicted to the stupid thing.
