An approximation of the noise my PC just made. :(

I think the power supply just died. It smells really bad... Oh well. I've been meaning to upgrade for a while.

Hubby is kindly letting me use his machine just now until I can collect my laptop from work.

YOWCH. Yeys for hubby sharing his machine!!

I might have to share this weekend; my hubby has lost his netbook's power cord (which is baffling, since he's only ever had it at work or home).

Good luck with the upgrade!

IKR!! I didn't even say anything! I was just going to go to bed and he said he would go watch TV and let me use his, logged out of WoW and tootled off to the lounge!

He must be sucking up for something...

OMG oh noes! Nice of your husband though. Mine lets me use his from time-to-time, but I never let him use mine. We haz rulez!

Remember how 10-15 years ago, you probably didn't even own a laptop? Now it's like we can't go two hours without one. ;)

without one? I have 3 at home right now, including a netbook - and I use them all!!!

I have two myself, plus a desktop computer which I use mostly for downloading stuff to iTunes, lol.

But seriously, I didn't own even one until about eight years ago, and it was a beatup old thing I only used for school.

I still do not technically own a laptop - it's the works (and so much nicer than I could afford myself!) but we have two desktops, 90% of the bits for another 2 and I can always use my Crackberry or the PS3 to get online...

I tried my machine again this morning after it had cooled down - it booted, smelled bad and then rebooted so I hastily shut it down again.

Our ONLY PC at home is Hubby's work laptop. He lets me use it whenever. The only Web site I have trouble with is the Joe Armstrong Fan Forum. Seriously.

Sometimes it shuts down for no apparent reason. I think it's a coincidence. Hubby's not THAT computer savvy...I think.

ugh - dead 'puters are not good but the possibility of getting a new one? yay!! I am praying that my 5 year old gateway holds out just a few more months (itunes may be the death of it plus dl shows that friends share). I hope I have some $$ left after my UK trip, and hope the air con at home and the car with almost 100,000 miles don't decide to die...

My power cord made a beeping noise the other day. And the next day I had to buy a new one. They're so kind to us, laptops.

On an unrelated subject - in that icon LJ looks like he is going to shoot laser beams from his eyes. All he needs is a cape and he could be a crime fighting super hero.

LOL! He is a crime fighting super hero!

Well crime causing perhaps - but it's close enough!


*pootles off to HeroMachine for a play...*

Oh dear, a new site to waste my time on...
