So I got my computer back from repair. $925.86 including sales tax. They replaced literally every part of the computer. The display is different. The top case is different. The logic board is different. The hard drive is different. 

Literally the only thing the same is the serial number. It’s a new computer. 

I hadn’t realized: my laptop keys were worn down, to the point that the under-keyboard illumination shone through several places. Now that there are new keys, I’m a little weirded out. It doesn’t feel like my computer. I keep missing the space bar, it’s too textured. (Mine is worn smooth; I only ever hit it with my right thumb.) 

I did a full restore and everything’s fine except my Adobe software didn’t come over, and neither did Scrivener. I manually moved Scrivener over and it seems to be working. But Photoshop and Lightroom, both of which I purchased legitimately but a really long time ago, both want me to re-activate them, and it’s been so long I literally have no idea where the disks are. So I don’t know what I’ll do without that, and in the meantime, I can’t import or process photographs. So those are all still in my camera– Maryland onward is still in my camera. Oh well. 

Headed back to the farm the day after tomorrow. Yeehaw.
