sideview, obamame_sideview

8 Thingies?

Comment and...

1. I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll challenge you to try something.
3. I'll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I'll tell you something I like about you.
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on yours.

For some of you, it might be hard, since we've not met in person or only have a few times, but I'll give it a shot.

The solution is right in front of me

I'm not going to submit this to mock_the_stupid but gah, this is a stupid one on my part:

I've had this laptop since fall, no speakers. I have the speakers for my old computer right here on the desk, but hadn't hooked them up because it looked like they needed 2 jacks and I only have 1 on my system. I think I even tested it.

But obviously I didn't, because after 5 minutes with a Gateway sales agent and 20 minutes with a tech, I pulled the speaker jack from the old computer and put it in my headphones jack... and lo behold I now have SPEAKERS.

I'm still connected to the tech support chat and just apologized for being a doofus.

Now will the tech post me to customers_suck or something?
