“A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any other invention with the possible exceptions of handguns and Tequila.”
~ Mitch Ratcliffe
I have a new computer.
It’s been sitting in a box beside my desk for weeks. I knew I needed to change over from my old one, but I had tight deadlines for a project, and on my old computer I know where everything is and how to use it. I’ve thrashed my old laptop and it’s only a matter of time before it dies. It takes forever to start, to do anything significant or to crunch anything big. I need to get onto my new computer quite urgently.
I finished that project yesterday, so it was time. It took most of the day to migrate all my files across. A techie friend did it for me.
I’m trying to love my new laptop but it’s not behaving. The fan is noisy and constantly running and my laptop is overheating. I can tell there’s something seriously wrong and I’m going to have to return today it for repair or replacement.
Now my old computer is stripped and my new one is faulty and I think the Universe must be telling me I need some downtime. If you don’t hear from me it will be because I’m computer-free, and not in a good way.
Much love from a very grumpy Nicole 🙁
