I’m sure there areÂ a few of you out there who have wondered, at one time or another, What would that OCD-riddled bookninja nerd do without his precious computer? Turns out the answer is: mostly sleep. Yes, I am still largely living without my compy resources because HP decided they’d make sure each one of their laptops required a different f’n AC adaptor, probably as a fail safe to keep them from mating and forming a race of super laptops which would destroy the world. Now, while I agree with that last, IN PRINCIPLE, in practice it means I can’t find someone to give me enough juice to get my bookmarks, half-finished assignments, and sundry shit onto a thumb drive so I can work on it anywhere. Lesson learned (if the lesson is I should bill HP for my downtime and lost income).
So check back here later today and see if my new cord and brick have arrived in the mail from a faceless eBay seller in Toronto. I know. I know. But don’t say anything. Like Kratos in God of War III, all I have left is hope.
