Success!!! My PC is finally fixed! My thanks to friends who helped, including Beho who lent me his PC cd's!
I made a new comic strip for my sister's parenting mailing list.
By the way, as I am typing there is a tiny orange kitten sleeping beside the phone. I have no idea why Bilog (its mother, my cat) left it there, and why she brought it there in the first place. I'm worried that she's ignoring her kits, as the other already died. I don't know what to do. I wanted to call Gerry about this, but he may still be a bit sad over Smeagol.
