Technology is Serious Business

No sooner had I rekindled my love for World of Warcraft than once again laptop difficulties begin to set in.  It’s becomming absurd that I’ve had so many problems with Laptops, consoles, MP3 Players and various other electrical appliances that I can simply shrug this off.

I have no idea why, probably a spat of jealousy towards Rock Band causing it to self harm, but after returning from paying an excrutiatingly large amount of late library fees my laptop had ‘recovered from a fatal error’.  Only, it hadn’t recovered.  Within the next hour the system would begin to take fits of blue screening and now wont even log on to windows.  awesome.

So now, out of warranty, I’ve arranged to have the thing repaired… again.  However, it’s not all bad news, this gives me the perfect opportunity to get myself a new laptop or desktop.  I’m thinking towards the latter myself.

Infact, I’ve got one picked out:

Unfortunately, I have expensive tastes, so I’ve had to arrange for funds to be transfered into various accounts.  There’s also the issue that, even if I do order that, it doesn’t come with a monitor or speakers.  So that’ll have to be something that gets arranged afterwards.

Couple this with the fact that my XBox Live account is still ‘locked’ and the fact that one of my rock band guitars may be needing replaced, it’s been a great couple days.

and thats before I even start ranting about Indiana Jones 4!!

    Mark I know what’s wrong with your laptop…it’s clearly on fire. That can’t be good for it.
