PC problems

Leave a comment

Like some guys say, when it rains, it pours – last night my PC caused me a bad panic attack, as it simply went dead dead dead on me.

I was able to backup all the essential data using an old laptop and a wonderful thingie, a cable that allows me to access a HD as if it were a USB drive, and after much cursing and a few hours spent copying data… my PC started up again.

But it’s not a good sign.
So, should I disappear all of a sudden for a few days, you’ll know it’s because the PC died, and I don’t have the money to buy a new one or have the old one fixed.

In the meantime, I’ll haver to write faster.
More work done, more money paid, maybe a second-hand coal-powered PC on the shopping list in case of emergency.
