There are times when I could cheerfully go on a rampage with an AK-47.
The last 24 hours have been such a time.
I wrote, innocently enough on Sunday that my laptop was irritating me. Now, I don’t know if it took a huff at what I had written or maybe it was just Sod’s Law, but it decided to explode not long after I had written my little piece.
It is only the second time in my life that has ever happened, and the first time was someone else’s PC so I didn’t give a damn then.
It went up in a cute little pall of smoke, and that was the end of that.
I tried everything, but it just sat there with a blank screen whinging about how it had no hard drives.
I haven’t lost much.
All my photos of France are gone, along with my porn other documents. The worst of all is that I have lost all my passwords, and now I can’t access all my ‘premium’ sites.
The Other Fella went off and bought me a new laptop, which for once was reasonably decent of him.
I started tweaking that one this morning, installing all my stuff on it, and that fucking collapsed as well.
Himself came over and we had a few words on the matter, and he has managed to get it to the point where I can start writing again.
I’m really pissed off with laptops now. I could cheerfully drop this in a local bog hole, but I suppose after Yer Man has bought me a new one, I had better not.
If this one goes belly up again though, I am going to find myself a nice high vantage point.
Me and my AK-47.
I don’t like Mondays.
