Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Good news and bad, today.
A courier has dropped off my laptop this afternoon – result! However, they have failed to drop off the charger, so I can’t actually plug the laptop in to see whether or not it is working. So I have no idea whether it’s been successfully fixed or not.
It’s actually turning out quite comedic – a next-day on-site support package from a leading computer manufacturer taking four unsuccessful home visits and the best part of two weeks away from home to fix a laptop, then failing to return the power supply. Thank goodness my life will never depend on a repair from HP… Oh, wait…
