I can still see the flashing, neon, madras pattern clearly in my mind. I can hear the fans whirring. I can remember when my laptop died so clearly.
Then, for some reason, I decided to turn it on again.
The black screen fades into not weird lines or random patterns, but into the normal start-up screen.
I log in as normal.
My recycle bin is empty.
My computer works.
Now, it died, and has been re-animated. This means that it may behave a little strangely and it may be a little slow and lurchy...
But the ol' gal's back.
This is Part I of however many because I am going to try this new thing called organizing my thoughts, rather than just spewing out stream of consciousness soap operatic drivel. Sounds good, no?
