Oh no, not again!! [Apr. 20th, 2009|08:53 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

Oh no, my beloved HP laptop has gone bang! I was on Facebook, listening to an awesome cover of Bohemian Rhapsody by an Atari XL and 4 HP Scanners... I'd just reposted the video to my Facebook profile and then *sizzleclick!*

Nothing, nada, nowt. I've tried different combinations of power and battery, held the power button down with no power available at all (as directed by the support people) and nothing at all.

It was pretty much 6 months ago when I had that laptop in the shop for a dickey screen, and now this. I am gutted, I can tell you.

Fortunately I still have my Eee, so it won't be all that bad... but it does raise questions about The Bugcast for the next couple of weeks. I'll make a decision on that shortly.

The one before last - which I believe was Eee-bound - sounded really good, if that helps at all? I wouldn't have known it was a different laptop. Great sound as always!

Nar mate, I've only ever done one show that wasn't created on my HP laptop, and that was last October when my laptop was in the shop.

The difference there is that I had a chance to prepare the show in advance by copying stuff from my laptop to Caroline's laptop before it went kaput completely. On this occasion I had no warning whatsoever.

I think I'm going to take this opportunity to take a weeks break, and see what happens for next week.

Thanks though :o)

I don't think so, no. I still haven't decided yet.
