So I'm back. Long story short:

I'm at college, the university said they'd provide computers for all engineering students(at our expense);
The 400+ computers are ordered from MPC/Gateway in June 2008.
Gateway apparently LIES to the university in July claiming all of the parts are in.
School starts and all other students have computers, the engineers don't.
We keep getting updates on the computers saying the delivery is pushed back... it's 2 weeks until the next news.
The supplier lets the cat slip out of the bag by contradicting a previous lie by saying parts are just now coming in, assuming him to be a liar, the university finds new laptops to buy and severs the contract with Gateway, opening a law(l)suit in the process.
I get a computer 1 week after they order the new ones from HP, it's better, faster and cheaper.

Now I'm back...

So what's up?

I've been in my Junior year of college for 3 weeks now.

I'm at work.

It's fun.

sophomore year, calc 1 is easier this time (i actually understand it!) and my chem. teacher treats us like we've never dealt with chemistry or even metric conversions before. ever!

speaking of new computers, got my new one built a few weeks back and love it!
