requiem aeternam dona eis domine et lux perpetua luceat eis
My laptop appears to be on its way to laptop heaven. Am resigned to shelling out large cash to replace it, becaues I really don't want to do without something to write on.
I back everything up obsessively, so only lost the couple paragraphs I was working on last night.
It smells faintly of smoke and ozone.
Farewell, free laptop of ancient vintage.
