The Lament of the Laptop

>> Saturday, September 19, 2009

i saved up and purchased a refurbished Dell Latitude laptop in june of this year. since i was going to be on maternity leave, i figured that it would be a good investment because i probably would be spending most of my time breastfeeding. and true to form, i was right! this little baby (not the mini) has been my lifeline to the outside world - and probably has saved me tons of visits to the pediatrician.

this morning though, we lost access to the audio device. the husband couldn't find the volume control... which then led to a whole heap of issues and finally the thing wouldn't even boot up. to put the icing on the cake, my warranty expired THREE F*CKING DAYS ago. the only good thing is that there was a very small window of time where i was able to backup all the photos that i have taken of the mini since june. i would have cried if i lost those.

anger management? yes, i'll take a 10 week course, please. i'm seriously not able to purchase another so keep your fingers crossed that the computer gods at staples can fix it! and i am telling you all now to BACK UP YOUR FILES!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!
