Sorry for the wait. You still love me, don’t you?
Sunday was a rough day. All I wanted to do was make a few changes and post. At ten-thirty PM, after a day of demands, I sit down at the new Dell and watch the Blue Screen of Death appear. I know no fear, having seen this screen many times in my travels. A quick reset, and I’m back in business.
Except that I’m not.
A couple hours of bugging (I mean -out, not de-) and it’s time for bed. Couldn’t get through to support. Set up the trusty old Win 98 rig, email support my tale of woe. Much to my surprise, this morning there’s a reply. Like all oracles, this reply spoke in byzantine riddles. I replied to the replier, making sure to use the word “warranty”. Another response comes, this one clear as crystal in February. And now I’m back in the game. I have a weird bruise on my knuckle, which I can only assume cam from me biting it during my tense sleep, but other than that, no harm done. Could this have caused the problem? Who can tell? Either way, I’m buying a new scanner.
