Yeah so... you know that thing I do with the mowers..... or the tiller..... or anything else of value? It finally struck down my trusty laptop.
*** I have no pictures so imagine one here ***
It was a hard weekend full of false accusations of "doing it on purpose," of "that's no way to treat an expensive piece of technological equipment," and so forth and so on.
I tried to take my deadish laptop to the Nerd Herd where they shrieked gales of laughter as they ripped open the laptop and shook out about a cup of flour and three pounds of dog and cat hair. After composing themselves they said the laptop was dead and to just get another one.... and that was no way to treat an expensive piece of technological equipment.
Yesterday finally, The Big Man took me firmly by the hand, marched me into the Big Computer Store where I was instructed Not To Touch Anything, and led me back to The Cheap and Good Enough stack of computers.
I got one. I'm still setting it up. That's where I've been all weekend. *sigh*
Did everyone enjoy their weekend?
OFG, Breaker of Things. I am the reason we don't have anything nice.
