New Laptop Coming…

Well, it’s been a while since I wrote anything.  A lot’s been on my mind with school and some Jack Swift things, but the end (of the quarter at least) is pretty much here.  I just have a couple exams, and then I’m free for about a week.  Wish me luck!

On another note, my laptop died a couple weeks ago.  It was an old Toshiba one (relatively), and it held out nicely for the five or six years I had it.  I’m not sure what made it croak; it started crashing mysteriously at one point, and then it just wouldn’t boot.  Luckilly the hard drive seems to be alright, and at any rate I’d pulled my data off it.  So I didn’t loose too much.

I’m getting a lower-end Lenovo to replace it.  It’s not the zippiest machine, but I don’t need that – just something to throw Ubuntu on, and use for Web browsing and working in the coffee shop, checking my Email, posting here, watching the occasional movie on car rides, etc.  I may do some heavier things from time to time, like edit video, but that’s what the desktop is for.

I should get it next week, and I can’t wait.  I’ll post more when that comes.  In the meantime, I’m off to the pool, because it’s too hot.
