The good news is that I had been looking at replacing my 6 year old Dell with something newer and looking at the Dell XPS line. So yesterday I went online, took a leap and ordered one. Call it an early RL Bday gift for Rocky. It should arrive by next Tuesday so it looks like I will be absent from SL for the time being. I will still be alerted when there are visitors to my home while I am away. Hehehe. Rocky is blogging from RL work, so I will keep you updated here.
