This post might end up being a bit of a repost from my post on Friday but screw it, I'm going to make it anyway. As you might recall my fancy red laptop came to an unfortunate end on Friday. It's currently sat in the repair shop. Quick recap, I got mouthwash on the keyboard and it seeped in and fried it. Thankfully I was able to extract and wipe the hard drive so I felt safe taking it into the repair shop. I took it in on a Sunday and they said it would take a week, so I hope I actually do get it back by the end of the week. I think they'll just be replacing the keyboard in it. I actually can't remember what happened the last time it broke. Oh wait, I remember now, it was the battery. The battery needed to be replaced.
Anyway, for no I'm on my black laptop. My old, old black laptop. This thing really has seen better days. I think it's in need of a good wipe itself but I don't have the installation disks and I'm paranoid. I'm not about to ask a nice repair man to do it. Maybe I can get another copy of the disks or something. But yeah this thing needs help. I've had some real difficulty with it this past weekend. It actually has very good memory. It has 4gb of RAM and a 1.3ghz processor. I remember it being a pretty slick machine and my problem with it was that the graphics card wasn't as good as I wanted, as I got it when I was heavily into PC gaming and the laptop I had before this was phenomenal for games. Since that time though I have let my nieces use this. If you value your electronics then I suggest keeping them away from children. I've ran virus checks, I've ran disk cleaners, I've deleted programs and still it's only really good at doing one thing at a time.
Sometimes the poor thing can't even do one job properly. The biggest problem I've had by far is that the processor will give out and it'll close programs to free up processor space. Programs I happen to be using.
Still, it is and always has been a faithful little piece of machinery. It's kinda fun to use an old computer really. I consider myself lucky to even have a second laptop. I could be in a much worse situation right now. Especially given that one of my closest friends is an American. I'd rather have my video calling program randomly cut off than be unable to use it at all. She's pretty important to me so it'd suck to be unable to talk to her for a whole week. Been there, done that, don't really need to go through it again.
Anyways, I'm out guys. Have a nice day. I hope to go on a bike ride today and finally put my laundry in the wash.
