So I accidentally killed my computer yesterday. I was packing it up at the end of the day and accidentally dropped it on the floor. I was able to resurrect it temporarily – just long enough to get it home and back it up – before it died for good.
I was, to say the least, pretty distraught. I fumed and raved and beat myself up about the whole thing. Thankfully, my wife had her old 13″ MacBook for me to borrow until I could get a new laptop.
Which I ordered this evening.
So now I’ve got a 15″ MacBook Pro winging its way to me, and it should be here by the end of the week. I’m thinking – given the ultimate demise of the recently-deceased – that I’ll probably continue to use my wife’s old laptop (she has a newer one she uses already) for school, especially since I got everything moved over from my backup to this computer. I am upset that I had to get a new computer at this specific time, but it was probably getting to be about time anyway. I mean, it was four years old, which is pretty damn good for a laptop, and I was wanting to pick up a new one this year anyway (I just figured it’d maybe be over the summer. Guess I was wrong). I am very excited about getting a new computer. It’ll be nice to have something current and more powerful at my disposal.
