Last night I had sorted out a month’s worth of receipts, eaten dinner, watched some of Gordon Ramsay’s “The F Word” and was all set for at least a few hours of gaming. I was thinking of Mass Effect 2 because I’ve wanted to finish my FemShep run at some point even though Mass Effect 3 isn’t coming out until next year.

But then my mom called because apparently me sending the Skype link to them wasn’t enough and they weren’t able to install it. After some time trying to do the over-the-phone “Okay what do you see now?” I walked my mom through installing Logmein on my uncle’s computer. From there I logged into their computer, downloaded Chrome ’cause Internet Explorer was driving me crazy, and then installed Skype.

Thankfully at that point it all went without a hitch. I didn’t have to configure any webcam or check headphone or microphone connections. By the time I finished this comic it was almost 11:30, approximately 2 hours after the first call from my mom. Could’ve been worse I guess, it could’ve taken three hours.
