chewed up and spit out
posted by soe 10:06 am

That was what happened to my post last night. I was just proofreading it when the mouse stopped responding. Figuring the computer had frozen and that I’d just have to suck it up and rewrite my treatise on vacations, I pressed the restart button. The screen on the laptop went blank, as it is supposed to do. Unfortunately, it is eventually supposed to reboot and bring the start-up screen back, which it did not.

I let the machine run for a few minutes and then closed the case and went to bed.

I got up this morning, hoping the computer had thought better of its temper tantrum. Nothing doing. It screeched when I hit the restart key again.

Rudi thinks the logic board is fried.

Too bad this happened just before Christmas and just after $1000 worth of repairs to the car.

So please pardon me if things are a bit quiet around here over the next month, particularly on weekends. I’ll try to remember to post before I leave the office for the day, but some days that just may not happen.

At least it was the computer’s logic board and not mine that went, right?
