Well, eventually normality will return.

Published July 24, 2015 by Iphis of Scyros

If there is such a thing as normality, anyway.

Last night, I got the call.  The call I had been waiting all day for.  The one from the repair center.

Unfortunately, it was bad news.  The motherboard on my laptop was fried, and since the processor was  attached to it, replacing the motherboard would have been ludicrously expensive.

So I had to buy a new laptop.

But I wanted the data on the old one–some of it was vital and I had no back-ups, ’cause this sort of thing had not occurred to me, for some stupid reason (a mistake I will not be repeating)–so I had to leave the new one at the repair center so they could copy over my data.

Normally, I do that myself, ’cause duh.  But when you’re replacing the computer ’cause it won’t turn on, well…then you kind of don’t have that option.

So I won’t have it back for who knows how long.  He said it usually takes about 72 hours, but might take less.  But is that 72 total hours, or 72 store-is-open-hours?  Because that’s a very different end result, y’know?


Anyway, I’ve got some actually on-topic posts planned, and Monday’s post is about Aias, so I want everyone to read it, because Aias is my second favorite Achaian after Patroclos!  (I’m not sure when I’ll actually get to those on-topic posts, btw.  I just have some of them planned out.  And I’ve started work on one of ’em off-line.)
