I haven’t crashed yet but my computer has

I had 20 more updates to post today but that’s not happening as I’ve had to take Orville to the shop. I’m writing this on my phone.

He wouldn’t come out of hibernation — wouldn’t turn on, wouldn’t turn off either. Finally I turned him off at the power strip. Then when I tried to reboot it was like he was out of gas or something: went “whirrr” for like half a second and then just stopped.

I unplugged everything and hauled him off to the shop and the tech there was able to make Orville whirrr for a longer time period but there’s no video. So Orville is officially out of commission. Muttergrumble.

This is his first stay in the computer hospital since he was born. I hope he won’t be there for long.
