My laptop is seven years old now, which in computer years is, like, ancient.
Its having another round of problems, including the fact that the replacement battery won’t hold a charge anymore, so I’ve been wondering if it’s time to move on.
But laptop shopping is kind of overwhelming. I don’t know what’s supposed to be good these days.
To complicate things, I’ve evolved to using open source software exclusively – though I can’t tell if it’s because I’m a nerd, or just stingy. I’ve gotten kind of sick of the computer second guessing my every move, so I’ve been giving some very serious thought to switching over to Linux.
Ooo look at me! I’m downloading programs off the internet and installing them! That’s like, WAY riskier than having sex without a condom!
Just pretend I didn’t say that.
So at the moment, I cant work on any of my current stories.
And I just cant get along with smartphones.
I’m gonna be in limbo for a bit.
