I got kicked out of coffee shop when it closed : )
I have internet at home again ( I moved this weekend)
so using my laptop
took computer in for repairs, the hard drive crashed : ( but still under applecare
got a loaner maxed out 20" for my 17" imac for the next two weeks
that is how long it will take for apple to send in the parts grrr...
