Oh, ouch, that sucks. At least you've taken steps to get it fixed! :D
And oh god, she's one of those Facebookers. :I Never actually met one, myself, since most of the people I know who Facebook simply use it to keep in contact with one another, and perhaps publicize their lives a bit. As for Osbourne, meh, don't knock it till you've tried it!
Your mother gets into debates on Facebook? Good grief o_o She should invest in a smartphone that can download a Facebook app, that way she won't be so computer-needy. Or, perhaps if you're up to it, you could get a phone and browse PC from there?
Orrrr you can get your computer fixed, that works too. What computer is it?
I'm on my mother's computer at the moment, which has been where I've been getting on for around almost 2 weeks now. The problem I face is that whenever my mother gets a new Facebook notification I get instantly pushed off because she thinks it might be someone replying to her comment or a heated debate.
As a result, I had to go invisible here for a while. There's still a good shot my computer could be fixed so may not need a new one if everything goes smoothly!
