No more crap for now.
I got a laptop that can connect to the internet and has adequate speeds. Of course, I got to get another one next month for school, but for now, it seems like I can go back to doing stuff the old way if anyone is inclined.
This also means I can be online more often and will actually communicate when somebody has a birthday, for one.
Only drawback; the operating system is Windows Vista, which isn't supported, and isn't as reliable as XP or 7. So, I'm working on getting that upgraded.
