Earlier in the week, I wrote about all the technological failures I’ve suffered from recently, including two computer failures. I wrote about how when my desktop failed on New Year’s Eve that I was forced to resort to a little tiny 10″ screen NetBook with 1Gb of RAM.
I also wrote about how my daughter’s laptop had died within 24 hrs of my desktop; the camera decided that it didn’t exist and the USB hub refused to recognise any devices.
Well, I can say with all honesty that Technology Angels actually exist.
Let’s start with the desktop. Well, it’s been fixed and now has a new motherboard and LCD display. My daughter’s laptop came back yesterday, also with a new motherboard.
But the best little technological surprise was something that arrived on my doorstep yesterday.
A dear friend, who shall remain nameless, has sent me a new laptop. Okay, it’s not new — it’s second-hand — but she decided that it just wasn’t good enough for a writer to be force to use a little tiny NetBook with only 1Gb of RAM. My new portable beasty is intended for me to take with me when I decide to get out of the house and go write in a coffee shop somewhere — or when I’m giving a presentation and don’t have to rely on my son’s laptop.
Well, I’ve install all the software I need, especially Scrivener, and I’ve taken the time to personalise it. I must admit that I’m really looking forward to school going back in February. Then I’ll be able to easily find some excuse to find a little coffee shop somewhere.
