Long story short, the guys in the IT department at work were able to repair the laptop, and all is well...aside from the fact that I'm a couple days behind now, and issue #8 of The Ill will be up by Saturday morning (before noon). Hope to see you back here, hope you're enjoying the story. Sorry for the delay, but I'm SO gleeful (I rarely have occasion to use that word) to have the laptop up and running again.
