The Sunday Salon: February Round-Up

I finally realized I could use my dad's laptop as a fill-in until I can (hopefully!) get my own laptop fixed. My sister and I figured out today that it was not the screen- it's the hard drive! The light for the hard drive is not coming on. I thought that when I hit the power button all I heard come on was the fan, but I was not sure. *Sigh* I hope this is under the warranty...

Here is the round-up for February books!

  1. At least the hard drive on your laptop can be replaced - I hope it doesn't cost too much. My wish list is growing almost as fast as yours.
