Yes, we are back online! For me it seems like a million years since I last posted, but I guess it hasn't really been that long! We've got the computer patched up at this point - we had a fried motherboard (due to the extreme heat here in Ghana) and a virus that said that Windows had ceased to exist. To make a long story short, John had to put in a new motherboard and cooling system and then had to wipe the hard drive. The big problem with that was that we didn't have a recovery disk for this computer. Luckily we had a recovery disk that a friend had asked us to hold onto...unluckily, the recovery disk was for an Everex laptop with Vista (as if anyone has ever heard of that before!) So right now I am using an HP computer wired for XP that thinks it is an Everex laptop wired for Vista. Needless to say, I'll be really glad when the recovery disk we ordered gets here! In the meantime, I'll be doing my best to post regularly, but unfortunately it will probably be without pictures since Vista doesn't seem to like my camera program!
