the guy didn't even say sorry, thats what I'm most pissed off about, and the fact that an all original is no longer all original, so the value just dropped by lets say thousands :mad:

How terrible, Nona! Can you pursue any kind of legal action?

well being a large company they won't fight it, my concern is that most camaros are cheap, dime a dozen you can buy them as little as $1500 mine I stole it for what I paid, $5000, it's a custom ordered 92 60k mile car garage kept, worth alot more. so I'm worried that they will try to get out of the amount it will take to fix it, try to pay me less then needed. The cops said it being private property they can't get involved so no, no legal action is being taken for now.

My home PC has died. Seems it's something to do with the motherboard not working. Hopefully they can do an onsite repair in a few days' time, but for now I feel completely at sea without it.
It takes something like this to make me aware just how much time I spend on it - which is probably not a bad thing!

Oh gosh, I'm sorry to hear that sweetpotato. The same thing happened to me earlier this year and it was incredibly frustrating.

The worst thing for me today is that I'm really tired and getting down about writing. Seems like I'll never be able to get back into it. And it wasn't too long ago that I was so happy about finishing a short piece I was working on. That high didn't last long. I'm really impatient and I need to work on that, but I miss writing when I don't write. And right now I feel like my life is on hold permanently.

Have you tried switching to another type of writing, like blogging? Sometimes just writing something keeps the juices flowing.
