“You have to have a new computer, Nerd.”

“Trust me, you're going to love having a laptop.”

“Your computer is ancient... you won't have any of these problems with the new one.”


Or, to quote my wonderful... if slightly innocent, mum “Horse Apples.”

The above should really tell all there is to tell at the moment. With an internet connection that sees to be suffering from an advanced case of palsy and a hard drive that refuses to speak nicely with my software, this natural nerd is once again thinking she might have been better off sticking to the stone tablets and chisel.

Hopefully this weekend will find me in better standing with the technology gods... I got an early Christmas present of a my own little slice of Zen and I can't wait to load it up.

What is a suitable offering to the gremlins that inhabit my motherboard? Any ideas?

Laptop troubles are what make me appreciate beige boxes. Very easy to replace any broken hardware.

I find chocolate works in almost any situation. It may not fix the laptop, but it will at least make you feel better.

In my case, I usually count my blessings that I know some tech geeks. I may not be married to a Prime Geek, but I do have some friends who take pity on my less than technically inclined self. They are also bribeable, sometimes with chocolate.
