The electronics curse struck twice today.

First:  I arrived home to my wife saying “Your computer is broken.”  I walked into the back room and turned on the laptop which responded with a terrifying grinding noise that sounded something like “Oh crap! My power fan is totally broken! This sucks!”  Vaguely. New power source needed.

We later went to the movie theater to watch golden compass. Exactly one hour into it the lamp in the projector burned out.  Luckily new passes were forthcoming and we can go back in a few days – whenever we can next get a babysitter…  hmm.

The upside is that classes are done for the semester and I can get back to work doing work for a change.

    Ouch. The laptop is on warranty?

    All in all, I’d say you got off easy:

    NOTE: I wrote laptop. I meant desktop. My laptop fills me with glee.

    Here’s a great mantra when your computer is broken, unless it actually doesn’t apply…”at least i didn’t buy it at best buy and the geek squad isn’t working on it”.
