Chris tried to resurrect my laptop a few weeks ago but it went to sleep and never woke up! He can’t even put Linux back onto it. I’ve been in to Kamloops to look at laptops and will convert the rest of my airline points into a GC for Future Shop. This will pay for most of the cost of the laptop and it will make us feel less guilty about feeling we HAVE to use them for flying (it’s terribly un-environmental…but never say never, we have a lot of relatives a long ways away and some vague plans about living overseas one day!)
So Chris and I are sharing HIS laptop for now. It’s o.k….definitely bearable while we acquire a new one for me in a frugal manner. But it has meant fewer blog postings!
