It’s been a constant companion of mine now for nearly 18 months , but yesterday, it finally had enough of being shoved into dark places, left in training rooms all alone and forced to travel in the luggage area on planes!
At 3pm yesterday it was fine – windowing away nicely, thank-you. By 5pm, this had been replaced by the infamous ‘BSoD’ (Blue Screen of Death) that’s so common with Windoze XP machines. The message on the screen said ‘Unmountable Boot Volume’, which in English means, the hard disk has failed.
In spite of a lot of pampering, four hours later, it was no better, so I gave it its last rites – and rather like the parrot in Monty Python, it has now ‘ceased to be’.
So, it’s bye-bye Dell and hello Samsung NC120 (in a few days).
Don’t you just lurrrrrve technology!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
