Thank you to all of you who have inquired about the status of my computer and when the hell I'm getting back on line. It's a sad and tragic story. I got it back last Friday and when I turned it on Saturday, it was running, but it immediately started freezing every 45 minutes. So I tried to reinstall OSX and it failed, four times, so I took it back to the "genius bar" (ha! as if!) and they said, "Huh." The computer is now supposedly in the hands of the Apple depot, but I have heard nothing. Bleh! I don't know where it is, what's wrong with it, or when I'm getting it back. Rawr! As always, you can read my Materiella column at Lost Writers.
