Mostly kept refreshing forums hoping it would start working again. At first I thought it was just some computer glitch, so I emptied all caches and cookies. Then I realized it is not coming back until monday, I mean, try to get tech help on anything on weekend.

took the day to go out w/ the GF.

can't do much else, since the car is STILL in the shop awaiting the damn confirmation of the "go ahead" for the warranty work...
took it in, under warranty, and of course, VW contacts the warranty people.
--one day later--
warranty people come out look at hte car.
--two more days later--
theyre supposed to call, just to confirm what's wrong, and ask if they can go ahead.

GRAWR.

Yeah I first thought it was something with the computer at work. i tried a few times and that screen came up. i refreshed and refreshed and still didn't work. i then tried at home more than a few dozen times....but still nothing:mad:!!! I then started searching around on vortex and posted a few times on there.

Yeah on a normal day...i probably check PW about...honestly about...15 or more times a day. Yep....i'm most of the time at work and then again when i get home:D

Checked the electrolyte levels in all the cells of my battery (good). charged the battery to 100% (good). Pulled the RF wheel to see what kind of a job dub werks did when they replaced my outer CV joint boot (good). Realized that the outer CV joint boot on the LF corner is split and needs to be replaced (bad). Read the B5 forum on VWVortex (bad).

Spent extra time on Vortex and B5one, poked around on vdubaddiction, and NTAG. Started on my 40k mile service and ordered plugs and filters online. Havent done the oil change yet (its 900 miles early) but I have today off as well. Cleaned my apartment, did a few other small things.

Regular routine: Check PW, check e-mail, check Pw, check more e-mails, PW again, talk to the gf, more PW, etc..

This weekend: I basically had the privilege of checking my email about 30 times in one hour. :(

And then blew my front left tire coming home from work...genius.:banghead:
