I'm going to cry.
I wasn't thinking, and let software update try to install a firmware update on my laptop. Bad idea. It boots, but I get nothing. Damn it!
Not to mention that I'm already frustrated at tech stuff because BBC America is coming in all pixelated from hell, making it impossible to watch Torchwood earlier. I am hoping the problem resolves itself before 9; I'm about to go check. If nothing else, this is the second or third instance of one channel breaking up and the others being fine, so they are sending a tech out tomorrow.
