I am happily sitting at my finally revived desktop. I can finally do all the projects that of course came to mind while my computer was down and I couldn't do them.
It turns out the part that Josh ordered to fix our computer did not have the right connectors and wouldn't work. With the shipping cost it wasn't really worth sending back and ordering another. Then it dawned on me that our frineds had an old computer sitting around waiting to be escorted to the recycle center. (Not sure why I didn't think of it a week ago.) Thank you Ashley and Quinn for donating your old computer so Josh could salvage parts off the carcase! It worked and we are happily in business again. Josh, you are amazing once again.
