Caution: Plenty of whine ahead!
I woke up this morning with a raw throat, a throbbing head and a laptop that wouldn’t connect to the Internet. I have a general knowledge of these things and nothing I tried would work. I’m talking about the laptop. Our pal Thane, whose computer knowledge runs even deeper, happened to drop by and also tried to fiddle around with the laptop. He was left puzzled and the laptop is currently useful only as a lovely doorstop or large paperweight.
I guess I’m going to have to take it to a proper geek who will charge me out the wazoo to fix it. I’ve looked online and tried the fixes I’ve found in forums but nothing is solving the problem. It’s a drag because I love having a laptop! I enjoy being able to surf the net anywhere in the house. Right now I’m using Derek’s desktop computer. I recently reduced my data transfer amount on my iPhone so using it for major web surfing could become expensive. It’s amazing how dependent we get on these technological gadgets. Lucky for me I’m sick today so I was asleep for most of the day anyway. Strange when being sick equals being lucky, isn’t it?!
