Yay money!

My loan came in sometime within the last hour. The essential stuff (a non-OEM copy of Windows 7 and a new hard drive) has been ordered, and will apparently be here before 1pm on Thursday (I paid the extra for express delivery – I’ve waited too long on this broken computer already). Hopefully this will fix the problem (it’s likely – my current boot drive, having come from a somewhat dodgy external unit, seems more likely to have failed than the motherboard, given that it’s a Gigabyte and they’re one of the most reliable brands out there) – if it does I’m considering spending the rest of the money on upgrades to make the computer shinier. If not, well a new mobo won’t cost too much, and I’ll have money left over for fun things.

So yay – nice to have happy things to report after the last two posts being so miserable.

I get to see my brand-new shrink tomorrow; not really looking forward to it. I know, it’s for my own good and will probably be great for me but yeah… I haven’t seen a shrink yet I’ve liked and I’m not sure this will change anything.

At least Will said he’d go with me, which should help with the anxiety of meeting them for the first time.

In other news, still waiting for the loan to appear in my bank account so I can get on with fixing the computer, and debating whether I should treat myself to a memory upgrade while I’m on: up for debate because my long-term plan involves buying an X58 motherboard (ASUS’s very nice Rampage III Gene), and any memory I buy for my current, somewhat antiquated 945GC setup will be useless when I do so. Still, that’s probably a long time away, so I might as well make my computer as nice as possible in the meantime. And I may need to buy another Socket 755 motherboard out of the loan anyway, depending on whether the problem is with the hard drive or the SATA controller (pretty sure it’s just the hard drive, mind).
