In the meantime, I'm just finally finishing up freeing some more space that will eventually be needed for George's downloads. While that previously broken external drive seems to be working fine again now, I still don't trust it, so I copied its entire contents to my other laptop. That allowed me to safely delete the ~60GB folder from this one, then delete all the other stuff from my torrents partition and move all of my finished downloads over there so they could continue seeding. Unfortunately, a change in partition is significant enough to make uTorrent re-check all of the files, so I first had about ten torrents in the queue to be checked, but they're now all finished and I have about 140GB of free space on the partition my downloads folder is stored on instead. George says he does plan to buy an external drive, but instead of telling me when, he always trails off to how his friend gave him an old laptop, and how he went to Future Shop to buy a 4GB stick of RAM for it, only to learn that when the laptop specs say "expandable up to 2GB", you really and truly can only install up to 2GB. Or so I would presume. There has to be some workaround for it (if not more than one), but something like that would have to be beyond any typical user's experience level.
As for other matters, I received one more reply to those emails I sent out on Saturday, this one to say that they were on vacation with a friend, but would send what they have finished when they get back. That just leaves one more yet (which I literally just (at the exact moment I finished typing "yet") received a response to), and now that I have their reply, it says they're still working on the revised sketch, but will get it done as soon as possible. I like how they also chose to mention that the "sketch usually takes the longest, so the rest should be done soon after". I suppose that could be true, but is it not also a little too convenient? Oh, and I still haven't received a reply about those icons, but they do have the money so that's done with, and before the night is out I have some more details to send off to somebody else.
I think the most important thing for now though is to try and move my bed out of the way, so here goes nothing. Maybe it will take the full hour and a half~
