Just some updates over here...
My laptop needs a replacement motherboard, and Best Buy, in their stellar history of lying and misleading their customers, instead of just sending me the replacement part, they have to send the unit out to a repair facility for at least two weeks. My phone needs to be reset to a custom kernel, and I need my laptop to do this.
Conclusion: I do not expect to have phone service restored for at least two weeks, and am not able to handle any sound editing projects, either. I've lost my contact list, so for those of you that shared your contact information, I'd appreciate it if you could email it again to me directly...
Aeterna tenebris abyssi stupefiat et obduxit vos in eius infernalis aegris dulci amplexu.
