I had plans for this year. It's amazing how those plans are dependent on having a computer. I wanted to work out to an exercise DVD in the mornings when I'm at Site. My choir will be singing in Nancy, France, in June and I wanted to learn some French beyond Ici est le facture pour le BlahBlah project (after four years dealing with the staff of a French client, my grasp of their language is still embarrassingly bad). I wanted to blog more often. I wanted to practice my singing using the rehearsal midi-files my choir provides.
Had a conversation yesterday with one of our tech guys at work. My original plan was to drop the laptop off at the clinic at PC World but he suggested finding a local place instead, saying PC World's customer service had a bad reputation. There's a place in Uxbridge I may try. It needs Vista reinstalled and, probably, all the drivers. Fingers crossed, I can drop it off tomorrow and get it back, fixed, on Monday afternoon.
On the way home tonight, I dropped into Costco and was very tempted by one of the netbooks. I didn't buy it but it remains an option. I could spend the Sanity Fund (currently £375 and all earmarked for an iPhone). We'll see what tomorrow brings, I guess.
