No MP of the week today

My computer mysteriously kicked it about half an hour ago. I was playing a game then suddenly everything went to heck and I thought it was the game, which I couldn’t get to shut down.

So I tried shutting Orville himself down in the usual way but nothing doing; I had to use the power strip. Then I couldn’t get Orville to start back up again. So here we are. I’ll have to take him to the shop tomorrow.

They want $50 just to look at it. And I think it’s probably a hardware problem which means some part or other will have to be replaced which will cost more of course.

Such is the joys of computer ownership. Though I have to say Orville has stood me in good stead. Not like the laptops I used to have which would break, it seemed, every week or so.

I’m writing this on my phone. I can’t update my website from my phone so y’all will have to wait till I get Orville fixed up and returned from the computer hospital.

Ah well, it’s not like I don’t have a zillion books lying around waiting to be read, yeah?
