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.
