R.I.P. Vic, I Think

First and foremost, I think we need to have a moment of silence for my desktop computer, Vic.
...
...
...

Now that that is out of the way, I'll tell you what had happened. Well, what had happened was...I came home from work yesterday and turned on the computer (before taking off my coat, as usual), the power light came on, but the fan wasn't humming. While watching the monitor, I noticed that the startup sequence didn't get beyond the BIOS screen. After the BIOS screen...NOTHING just a really dark blue screen...but not the Blue Screen of Death (there were no words on the screen). No words, no sounds (no fan), just power lights on both the tower and monitor. I have no idea what's wrong with it. In case you are wondering, no I didn't back it up. Not once in the 3 years I've had it.

Maybe I'll take it in to the shop to see what's wrong with it. Maybe I'll kick it off the patio. It depends how I feel next week. Considering my birthday is 17 January, maybe it WILL take a dive off the patio so I can then buy a new one for myself for my birthday.
**************************************

Last weekend, P was still complaining about her ear hurting. Tuesday, when the World's Busiest Air Base decided to wake from the weekend's slumber, I made an appointment for her at Pediatrics. When the Chair Force Doc looked in P's left ear, she let out a spontaneous 'Oh, my!'
She went on to tell me that P has an ear infection, but didn't say just how bad it was. She only said that she must treat it 'aggressively'. We left with a P a prescription for 13ml (almost 2.5 tsp) of amoxicillin twice a day for 10 days and some cough medicine for the coughing/sneezing/runny nose.

This is the first time P has had an ear infection since she was about 14 months old, when she had her adenoids taken out and tubes put in her ears.
If she is feeling better by MLK weekend, because we might go to either here or here, both places are in Austria, which is beyond my 3 hour driving limit, but I MAY make an exception this one time.

Thanks to everyone for the advice regarding my question about scrapbooking. Maybe I can pay someone to be a cyber shopper for me and order everything I need to get started. Hmmm....

Just one more thing...

I am looking around for a car charger and FM transmitter for both my iPod mini (P's myPod) and my iPod Video. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what make/model I shoud get?
