I’m back. Sort of.
I managed to rob the other laptop when Herself wasn’t looking. Heh!
My own laptop finally died the death.
And before any of you dumbfucks with Linux or Macs start shouting, it was a hard disk failure. Got that? Hardware. Nothing to do with whatever software I was running. And don’t tell me a Linux or Mac has never had a hard disk fail.
Now I have to run the gauntlet of the shop where I bought it. Doubtless they will try to shift me to the manufacturers, but I know my Sale of Goods Act!!
As I type, I just had a call from the shop [I sent them an email to phone me about five minutes ago]. I am impressed with their response so far. And the told me to bring it into them and they will deal with it. Irish business are improving somewhat.
Who says the recession is a bad thing?
