So, I told myself 'self, I'm going to do more validating soon.' but my laptop would go so very slowly and word would bog it down even more, making it a huge pain in my side. So the laptop up and died, forcing me to finally get a new desktop with Vista. Besides feeling rather overwhelmed about upgrading from XP, I feel somewhat relieved. Granted, I lost a lot of stuff on said laptop, but on the bright side, now with a new desktop I can validate without it bogging down and finally get a scanner so that I, too, can join the ranks of the submitters. The scanner might be a ways off, but I guess I'm closer? Just my trying to put a silver lining in what has been a pretty devastating situation. At any rate, I look forward to working with everyone in 2008, and I hope that you all have a fantastic New year celebration.
