My laptop died!

Well yesterday I was trying to read and post from my usual place on the couch, sitting in front of the TV with my laptop. it suddenly rebooted. I tried everything and then it wouldn't turn on. It's only 3 years old. I'll have to take it in and see if they can fix it. I really can't live without it. No I actually have to go upstairs to surf the web.

Well yesterday I went over to my friend Beths house and helped her with her computer. After getting it to a point where I could connect to the web I downloaded Adaware and found over 2000 issues with it. I was finally able to remove them all and update her Virus software but since it's windows 98 I couldn't load McAfee AV 7.1. I was able to burn all her pictures to cd for her so now she is going to get XP and rebuild it.

Today we went to the harvest festival at Cal Expo. I bought some soup mixes and stuff. Then we went shopping and bought some art supplies. Finally we had cheesesteaks for dinner and wandered through walmart.

"HuxBear's Home For Wayward Laptops (and out-of-date technology)(tm)"


(( My laptop's a P133 with a 256 colour display and 40meg of RAM... ;oP ))

I should start a "Get HuxBear Into This Century -- technologically speaking!" PayPal fund that rich, handsome bears who want to woo me can donate gobs of cash to... Yeah. I think I'm gonna get right on that. As soon as I solve the whole "world hunger" thing, riiiiight... (( My fragile ego can't take the struggle of zero-donations, 24/7... ;o) I'd cry. [[chuckles]] ))

Help a sexy bear surf for porn! YES It will work.

My laptop is actually a beast of a Toshiba but it's a pentium. I got it when I started my Masters degree. So I guess it's almost 4 years old. Hopefully it can be fixed for not too much money cause I really can't afford a new one now.

"The Laptop Of My Wet-Dreams(tm)" is a Toshiba. Spotted the 1st release of it just over two years ago when I was in Washington State doing an SF-convention, and had the sound-effect from "2001: A Space Odyssey" going through my head (the one whenever they see a monolith)...

Then my housemate *bought* the damn thing for himself (no, I'm not bitter...much) and I still lust...
