So last night I came home from Shiva and sat down at my computer. I was online chatting with khaosinc when I stood up to go get something. I tripped over the phone cord - the crappy phone cord that usually falls out of the modem jack when I'm logged on - and I managed to rip the modem clean out of my computer.

I'm at Quiet Storm now, and, since the Squirrel Hill Library is closed for renovations for the next year, I guess this is where I'll be doing all my emailing and LiveJournaling for a while.

If you need to reach me, you'd do well to call.

Is the computer injured, or just the modem?

If it's just the modem (meaning the computer boots up fine, nothing seems to be wrong), you can get a new modem for scraps. A 56K shouldn't cost more than $30 anymore, likely cheaper.

Man, I worry about computers too much. :-P

Re: inexpensive options
If your laptop isn't totally fried, there are a several external modem options. You could look into either a USB (small rectangular slot either on the side of your laptop or the back - has no pins), PC card, or serial (another plug in the back). Prices vary, so shop around, but I saw PC card modems on the internet for around $40-$50 plus shipping.
