Technical Difficulties  
My laptop just died. One minute I had bunches of tabs open and was waiting for a youtube vid to load to show to one of the guys I'm gaming with, the next it was a doorstop. I'm typing this on my friend's laptop (Thanks Edward!) and he says he can loan me his spare and I can get online at work but if I vanish for a while in the evenings you'll know why.

I'll run it to the shop tomorrow during lunch and hope it's a quick, cheap, fix. I just bought it! Okay, it was used but still I hoped it would last longer than a few months.

And yes, when we game most of the people at the table have laptops going.

Well, I did get my friends spare and got home to discover that it didn't have anything set up for dial-up access so after an hour on the phone to India that followed my own useless efforts I'm finally online - two hours past my work night bedtime but on line.

Ack! If they can't fix it, you should take it back to where you bought it and bury it--right in the middle of their floor.

Just dig a big hole.

I bought it from one of the employees at the shop, not from the shop itself but we'll see.

And I forgot I'm not signed in on this computer so whoever you are (Christina?) that was me.
