Monday afternoon, when Alpha Geek was moving his chair, it caught on the network cable attached to his laptop. Laptop went crashing to the concrete floor. End result: busted laptop.
The good news: We got the extended insurance that covers accidental damage.
The bad news: He’ll have to send the laptop back to Dell for them to fix/replace. It may be a week or two before he gets it back.
Alpha Geek needs his laptop to do his job. Doing his job is kind of important, because it enables us to have things like food and a house.
My laptop is the exact same make and model as his. So we decided the sensible thing to do is to swap his hard drive into my laptop, and I can use an old laptop that he’d had years ago. It’s not up to running the apps he needs for work, but it can run a web browser and e-mail client.
It also won’t run World of Warcraft. Sigh.
Anyway, if you’re one of my IM buddies and suddenly can’t send me messages, it’s because I forgot to copy my buddy list over to the new machine. I’m not snubbing you, really.
Except you. You know who you are.
