The first thing I did was show the laptop to my
professor (we're good friends). He laughed when he saw
that there was no disk drive or modem. I actually
offered to give him the laptop for the weekend, but he
made the point that I would have to get the thesis off
there someday, so I might as well start transcribing.

The funny thing is that similar things have happened
with this professor before - zip drive not working,
campus computer eating the zip disk (not reading it
and not ejecting it), 6 hours of work lost when I
somehow didn't save and the campus computer
crashed(although I swear I was saving the whole time)
- and that was all for ONE PAPER!! For every one of
those problems I came running to his office to
explain/ask for more time/bring evidence of mechanical
failure/ swear I wasn't making it up. He's used to me
by now.
