Eat your heart out, Christiaan Bernard — 10 Comments

  1. Kate – It can get quite nasty sometimes, all right. Unfortunately, it know I rely on it for a lot.

    Jim C – Do you mean that it is becoming like me, or I’m becoming like it [God forbid]?

  2. Brianf – I wouldn’t waste a CD on Linux. In emergencies I use “Daniel O’Donnell’s Greatest Hits”.

  3. @Brianf – Good advice. I actually set up Ubuntu as a dual boot with ol’ Windows. The implied threat is obvious.

    Grandad – Does this laptop fully understand that the next stop is the trash bin if it acts up one more time? Seems like it’s been nothing but problems since you bought the thing. What brand is it? I’d like to avoid it next time I’m shopping around for a laptop.

  4. Kirk M – I don’t give up on laptops that easily. In fairness, this is the first problem that is down to the laptop and nothing else. It also gave me a lot of advance warning before it went belly-up so I have no complaints about it at all. If you are interested, it’s a Toshiba Satellite L350-170.

  5. A Toshiba? And here I was looking at one just the other day when my PayPal account alerted me that I could get a TOSHIBA Satellite L305-S5962 NoteBook for $399.99 if I used my special PayPal discount code. Fairly tricked out too. Too bad I’m not in the market for a notebook right now.

    Okay then. I suppose it’s forgiven. Hard drives are stamped out like cheap plastic toys you find in gum ball machines these days. It’s not unusual to find a brand new one with a bunch of bad clusters right out of the box.

  6. If she’s an old bird you can expect dementia next – but at least she’ll have no memory of how you spoke to her!

  7. Hmmm, a time warp, deja vu? Grandad’s got a ‘Tardis’ theme? Maybe a database restore, oops where’s me backup! eeeks! sensing an evil grin 🙂
