Can I have a minutes silence please....
My laptop died yesterday.

I think this is mostly my fault, it has been running almost non-stop since Christmas, and I'm sure I heard somewhere that laptops are not to be abused like that. The cooling fan has been sounding rather flaky of late too, I guess it overheated.

I spent most of Sunday Morning trying to make a working machine out of the 10 dead machines I seem to have collected over the last 10 years or so. I was partially successful by lunchtime, when I went to the 'rents for lunch. The physical exertion over the last couple days took it's toll, and after a massive dinner I fell asleep in front of the TV whilst watching the last 15 minutes of "Saving Private Ryan."

I woke up about 10:00 and made my way home. The PC was still up and running (which was a surprise to me) and I just need to install AIM so I can chat to the Missus again, but I was still totally knackered, and the call of that big comfy bed was just too much...
