Well, i had a post ready to roll about the weekend’s interesting events, which include a trip to a gun show with friends (among other things), but it’ll have to wait. This evening, while I was eating popcorn, watching a movie on TV, and getting ready to post, my laptop failed. Suddenly, and quite without warning. The video hardware on the logic board has failed–I can still back up the laptop (and have been doing exactly that) using a FireWire cable, but the laptop itself is shot.
Since the laptop is vital to what I do for a living, I’m going to need to have it repaired or replaced. Depending on how expensive this is, it may mean I don’t go to San Francisco this January.
