Sad Day

Today I have witnessed my two computers die or almost die. My mighty 17" laptop is looking pretty humble right now hooked up to an external monitor because it's former widescreen glory will no longer show a picture. I have an old Sony desktop as a backup, but in my jerry-rigging attempts to transfer my laptop hard drive to the desktop drive, I have managed to blow the power supply on the desktop. My laptop must be sent off soon for service (while the extended warranty is still in effect), but this leaves me computerless. I try to deny it to myself but a large portion of my life is spent on these things. The longest I have been abstinent of my own computer (while not abroad) is about three weeks when I accidently left my power cord in Memphis.

So, I may disappear from AIM, the blog, Facebook, MySpace, email, Bloglines, and all the other wonders of my cyber life while the warranty people are hopefully looking at my dead laptop and saying to each other "He obviously needs a state-of-the-art brand-new replacement."

I can't imagine taking notes by hand. The horror!
