Girl who dances in a cage

Sans computer now

Dammit! One thing I was looking forward to when I got home was unlimited internet time. In LA I had to wait for hours for a chance at the computer or pay for internet cafe time. So last night I was at home finally catching up on some friend's journals when the left side of the computer went black...and quickly spread to the entire screen. I turned the monitor off and then back on again to see if that helped. Now when I turn it on the power light (which is usually green when the monitor is on) now blinks red.

My new roommate John will be out of town for at least part of December if not all of it and he has generously offered his monitor while he's gone. So I'll hook up his monitor to my computer today to find out if it's the monitor or the video card that went bad. I'd be surprised if it was the monitor. It's Sony, about 3 years old, and my experience with Sonys is that they last forever.

If hooking his monitor to my computer works I'll have computer access for a while and I'll post more. If not, I'll have to head over to the library once a day to check my e-mail. And I have SOOOOOOO much to post! I won't be able to read your posts for a while. :( I'm off now to brace myself for more internet withdrawals.
