My computer crashed (damn Windows, I'll get you Bill Gates!) and I was unable to get it working again for days!
I was lucky to have a family friend, who is exceptional with computers, in town.
He dedicated two full days to getting this piece of shit up and running once more.
I'm currently working on a research project, so I gotta get back to it, but when I'm done, hopefully I'll be able to make some more updates before I dive HEADFIRST into the week.
