After a constant flurry of e-mails, google decided to act (with a glacial pace) and restored my gmail account! I am sorry for anyone who received spam as a result of the hack- and I can assure you I would never spam (unless it was about my own events and ventures).

Now, I have learned. I am going to download every single document, share every calendar with my other accounts, and back up EVERYTHING.

This shouldn’t be so difficult considering Dell upgraded my netbook to a whopping 250GB! Why? Because the order was canceled twice due to their errors with inventory and B.S. After much hassle and time spent (more than I should have), they are sending me a much better computer with an upgraded battery (6-cell) instead of 3-cell and shipping it expedited next day for free. This computer with the Peace Corps discount will be a total of 286 bucks instead of what should probably be $600. I am so ecstatic and can’t wait to test out the webcam and skying features so I can stay connected with family and friends.

Next post I will write concerning the last days, the “Bridge to Post” packet that I was sent and other misc. items that you probably aren’t interested in. Until then, stay well and stay tuned.

    Hey Im interested in how you go about doing the Peace Corp discount from the DELL computer. I need to get one but don’t know how you apply the discount etc. Id be great if you could let me know!

    There’s a code on the peace corps wiki page , google “peace corps discount” and it will bring you to it. Follow the link and then type in the GS code. You will get the EPP program/ However, you might be able to swing something better by schmoozing a customer support/sales person on the phone or via chat especially if you are still a student/just graduated or if you explain you can only spend a certain amount.
