Guess what happens when you neglect your blog for several weeks?
Your laptop gives up the ghost!!
Yes that's just what happened to mine two days ago. Oh it is sad... very sad.
The Doctor says it would cost as much to repair it as it would to buy a new one. *Sigh*
Is not not strangely serendipitous that I decided just last week to go to Canada at the end of next week (yes again!)? I prefer to buy it in Canada- better prices- better choice etc- and the timing couldn't have worked out any better.
As for my baby, the good part is that it's mainly the monitor which is blown and all my info can be saved! It boots up and I can use a second monitor for the time being- a little inconvenient, but not too bad. The Doctor did send it back to me this morning with one problem- I can't get it to connect to the internet either wireless or with a cable. Pooooh! So for now I'm borrowing The Big P's really old laptop (which he still happily uses). It has this weird personality however and you have to keep watching what you're typing because your words will suddenly be 6 rows above where you were typing! Very bizarre, but not too bad considering this is the laptop which had a full glass of water spilled on it when it was 6 months old.
Any advice on new laptops would be greatly appreciated!
