After dragging myself to bed the other night after a long day working, my cat knocked over an unattended glass of water - right onto my beloved laptop.... *sigh*... (bad, bad, BAD kitteh!)
It has been drying, in scattered pieces for several days, yet still won't turn on when reassembled (luckily the harddrive seems undamaged, so my files have all been backed up), so I guess it's time to call in the Big Dell Guns and see what must be done.
In the meantime, I only have my old crotchety, nearly-antique back-up laptop that is so slow as to be nearly unbearable to use for much more than keeping track of my email. I've spent the last three days downloading updates, but it is still miserable to use - so until my lovely green machine comes back to me in working order, I'm afraid I will remain imageless and more silent than not online.
Fare thee well until happier times.....
