COMPY DEAD, YO

Ugh. So that new laptop I just bought?

Dead.

Died the same way as the first one.
Why is this happening in the busiest part of my freaking year.

Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Edit: Okay, fuck it, switching brands. Got an Acer. The keyboard feels like Jesus. It’s got an SSD so it starts up in like a nanosecond.

I’m digging it.

Really?

Hey, so I’m in like the busiest part of the semester and what happens? My freaking laptop craps out on me.

Awesome.

Luckily, my wonderful husband was able to help bail me out today by going to Best Buy (while I panicked in my office and tried to use my office mate’s computer to get some work done) to pick up a new laptop for me. He then stayed and set it up while I tried to finish my work.

I love him so much.

2018 is trying to end me, I swear.

Well, hell.

UGH so today was eventful.

Last night, Vaio was acting kind of strange, giving me a bit of trouble and just running really glitchy-like. This morning it was completely dead. Basically, it was acting like it did back last May when we had to take it in and wipe the hard drive and basically start from scratch.

So I considered a few things:

  • Fixing Vaio last time, when I was in the States, was pretty damn expensive. It would probably be at least 125% as expensive up here.
  • After the first hard drive incident, I looked up the problem online and it sounds like such a thing was fairly common with that model of Vaio. In fact, there were some people who said it had happened to them up to four times with one computer.
  • I have a huge project due on Thursday and don’t have time for screwing around.

I made the decision to use my teaching award money to get a new laptop. I took the bus to a Best Buy on the other side of town and got myself a new shiny! It’s an hp with a touchscreen and a 1 TB harddrive. It’s pretty. Hopefully it will last me a long time!

Now I have to name it. I can’t call it “Vaio” ‘cause it’s not a Vaio, and just calling it “hp” sounds dumb.

I shall think on it.

Vaio III is here!

He’s 750 GB. He’s got a back-lit keyboard. He’s compact and cool.

WOO!

 

I’mma go set him up.

I’m mourning

Bad news, all.

Vaio II is no more.

His hard drive had a serious mental breakdown, so I took him in to see if someone could fix him up. Nope.

Thank god for external hard drives, eh?

Big Compy’s still up and running, so I’m not totally helpless and curled up crying on the floor due to lack of internet.

But I’m sad. Vaio II was family.

Edit: His successor, Vaio III, has been purchased. He looks like this.
