When it rains…

It pours.

I come back from 4 days unwired, a bunch of writing done, to a laptop that’s head, a site that won’t take posts, and a ton of email and articles.

At least my external HDD reader is reading the drive. I’m copying stuff off now, but it’s not a good day for me in the computer world.

Looks like I need a new laptop, but with cyber Monday, it seems that so many sites are down. I can’t get the HP or Lenovo sites to respond.

Grrrrrrr

Thats just karma baby, for unplugging and bragginga about it! I've had a day or two like that, eager to work, nothing working.

Yeah, yeah. It's actually flaked out on me a few times for things, and most recently while I was in DC this summer. I've rarely rebooted it (every 2-3 months) for this reason. I knew something was wrong when it wouldn't come alive over the weekend.

Now I need to shop for a new one.
