The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side. Oh joy! Rapture! I got a brain! How can I ever thank you enough?

Alternately titled: MR. CHILI IS MY HERO!!!


I’m back at my computer! She’s got a fresh brain and a brandy-new CD driver, courtesy of my geeky-genius husband! The damage to the circuit board was repaired by a co-worker of Mr. Chili’s who does such things, Mr. Chili navigated his way through a terrifying maze of wires, connectors, screws and clips – and then navigated back again – and we’re back in business! I’m due to get a system upgrade sometime in the next few days, to boot (I’m going to get WIDGETS!), and all is well!

I love my husband!

The Patient is Critical

My beloved is in the process of performing a brain transplant on my laptop. In the initial course of the operation yesterday, the patient popped a connector. The outlook is questionable.


Mr. Chili has brought the connector (and the board to which it is supposed to be connected) to work with him at the University. It’s hoped that a, erm, specialist can repair the damage and save the patient. We’re hoping the prognosis isn’t terminal.

In the meantime, my geeky-genius husband has figured out how to make MY computer appear on HIS laptop, via some techno hocus-pocus involving a portable hard drive. Isn’t that cool? Anyway, I’m hoping to have my computer back soon or, failing that, to get the process in motion for obtaining a new one, because I don’t want to hog husband’s computer for longer than I have to.

Wish us luck, please – it might be sorely needed.
