My laptop appears to be suddenly dying, one component at at time…first the touchpad went away, and now the keyboard doesn’t work. I can still operate it with an external mouse and keyboard but I’m afraid it’s about to die on me completely. Fortunately I have everything backed up but if it does die, I’m going to be offline for a few days till I either get it repaired or buy a new computer. I’m sure it will cost so much to get it repaired it will almost be enough to buy a new computer, but I really can’t afford a new computer right now. Dammit.
If you do not see postings on Monday, Feb. 12, for the Feminist Theory and the Joy of Science class, you will know that I am computer-less.
Maybe it’s time for me to start dreaming about those cute little Mac laptops like the one Dr. Free-Ride had at the Science Bloggers Conference.
