Disappearance

Meep, my computer at home is broken. Something of a crisis. I think it's probably fixable, so I'm currently trying to restrain myself from buying a laptop. I can get into it in safe mode, but system restore doesn't work, and I don't really know what diagnostic things to try and do (and I'm worried about making it worse). It's not starting up, is the problem, and I *think* it's because I closed it down when it was in the middle of starting up the other day, and it's taken offence.

Anyway. I've got my Eee, but it's better for checking stuff briefly than hanging out on t'internet for six hours, as my normal evening goes. Oh, and I'm in the middle of transferring my phone number to my new sim card, so that might disappear too. Basically I'm going to vanish off the face of the earth, is what I'm saying. I'm on leave for a week or ten days from tomorrow (book festival yay!) so won't even have the computers at work to play with.

Last night, thanks to no computer, I read one and a half of Scalzi's Old Man's War books. I am enjoying them a lot, but finding them quite...shallow, somehow. I'm not getting much sense of difference from the different types of people/alien/clones etc, or many consequences from the lives they lead.

I has an Eee! It fits in my handbag...

Not great for typing on though, is it?

That sucks about your computer. Hope it isn`t a major deal to fix.
