As you all have seen, my hubby bought a new Mac for me for graduation, this is in-spite of the fact that he needed one far more than I. This afternoon after 8 years of life, his computer took a complete dump. She blew a capacitor on her motherboard and the entire computer room smelled like "burning" (Simpsons reference...which character said this?). She was a good computer and a pretty computer (Star Trek reference...which episode and character?). May she rest in peace. Now if only I could convince him that purchasing another computer in less than 2 weeks is a completely rational fiscal decision.
