Yay Apple!

Called Apple (finally. You'd think I'd have done this earlier?) and the tech support guy on the other end was helpful in agreeing with my diagnostic of hardware failure. So Apple will be sending me the box to send the computer back with~ they're paying for shipping both ways (Yay! Proper service! This is better than the free returned shipping from Lexar. 'course, Apple be a lot more expensive...). And I've been informed that the turnaround time should be around 5-7 business days. So 1 week, or two, max, without a computer. Not too bad. Hopefully, I won't have too much homework, else I may be badly screwed during that time.

It also means I won't be checking e-mail 24/7.

I hope the hard drive arrives soon though (hopefully before the box for shipping the iBook with)... and I hope I can still boot my computer by then. 'cause it's uptime is falling... although the time it's spending "broken" is falling as well... kinda. Not really. I dunno. At least I have things to try while poking at it now... 'cept the metal areas around the airport card's slightly dented. Hehe ^^;;

First day of classes. Theatre 199, focusing on the technical side of theatre looks AWESOME. Yes, awesome in caps. There's light hanging, focusing, set/light/sound designing, and tons of nice hand-on things. Plus, we get to go watch invitation-only rehearsals of Candide and some other shows, as well as participate (I think... I hope!) in one or two strikes for shows. So cool.

Japanese... was nervewrecking. I really want to drop it, because a) the stress is bad for me, and b) I'm going to hate the class if this goes on. Not the language, mind, nor the culture, but the class. But I don't know what else I could take to replace it... 'cause it's 5 hours. And I've only got 17 hours... and 12 hours is the minimum, but I'd rather take more classes... but... ARGH. Fucking hell. Plus, I need to make sure I have fulfilled my language requirement... So I'm going to have to wait until friday to check and see how well or how badly I did on the chinese proficiency exam. Ahhhh---.

Ok, I'm going to go review Japanese now. There's nothing else to do, and my computer's dead. Huh. Might actually be a good thing then.

I need to change passwords soon.
