Mokkun's going to Ontario...

September 29th, 2008 (11:54 am)

Just got off the phone with Asus Canada and Mokkun'll be going off to Ontario tomorrow afternoon/evening. >.<; Hopefully all will go well. First impression of warranty service is good. Pretty much no wait time on the phone, and things went very quickly from 'what seems to be the problem' to taking details to getting it sent in. Since he's still under warranty, pick-up and shipping is all covered. ^_^ I'll have to take care of packing him up and typing up all the details for his return to Ont. later tonight.

Neya was the only other system that underwent warranty work for me. She was a drop-off, but it was three weeks before I got her back. >.> Here's to hoping that the turnaround time for Asus will be much faster, on par with their customer phone service. ^_^

I've always heard good things about Asus Canada, so I was pretty hopeful things would go well. Next is to wait and see how actual servicing goes. I'm hopeful it'll all go well. ^_^ In any case, Haku might be able to fill in on bare essentials (obviously not on any sort of project scale if anything comes up though). Now if I can only figure out how to do FTP, I'll be able to do most of my regular webstuffs. ^_^

Hope Haku is working out well for you!
I use Fetch for ftp but I think that's a Mac only ftp

Yea and nay. ^^; I managed to watch Nabari no Ou on Haku, but apparently, he doesn't have the codecs to display mp4 video. Whoops. FTP's still not a happening thing either. Might have to do the transfer files on the USB key thing instead. (Did manage to get a windows version on the desktop and DL my site to the system, so I at least have my template files again. ^^; )

That's okay. I think I'm going into withdrawal and desperation. I've started contemplating the pros and cons of buying a new HD for Yggy and putting it into my old laptop. ^^; Always possible, and certainly Yggy served me well, but... ^^;; I think that's getting a bit desperate and going a touch far.

Wouldn't an external HD be better for back-up? Can even install OS on it so can boot using it... and then easily transfer files from one computer to another too. External HDs much cheaper than what used to be and no such thing as small (whaddya mean 300GB is small? The HD in my eMac that passed away last year was only 50GB oO).

My eMac doesn't have USB2 (so even if I wanted to get an ipod I can't connect!) so took me a little longer to find an external HD (with firewire). Still back up stuff onto disc too that I know I don't want to lose ^^

*laughs* An external would be better (I do have one but almost never use it...), but the internal I'm talking about (if I were to actually buy it) would be for me to revive my old laptop. This would then allow me to have a regular laptop to use, which would be far easier overall than using Haku. (Not to mention I just need a proper system to stay sane. I'm getting seriously twitchy because I don't have a proper system at the moment. ^^; )

For faster service, you could bring Mokkun to Ontario and drink tea in Ginlandia while you wait. What? All of Ontario is just around the corner from Ginlandia. *grin*

*laughs* I'll admit, once I realised Mokkun had to go in, I did briefly flash on the idea of going over there and taking him in myself. If this were in the midst/towards the end of NaNo, I probably would have! ^^;
