I am a perpetually jinxed laptop user who relies heavily on voodoo and the occasional stroke of luck to keep my equipment running. I travel constantly and my computer is my essential (and usually only) companion.
I have been using computers a long time, but I really don't like to watch the man behind the curtain work. Please go easy on me because my eyes start to cross if you get too technical (I'm not ditzy, just old).
My recent experiences with my computer sound like a MasterCard commercial:
- Technical assistance with your third
attempt to install the *free* Sony Vista Business upgrade - $300
- Losing a month's work because your hard drive crashed - $5000
- Reactivating Windows for a new hard drive on the same computer - $59
- Small talk with tech assistants in Bangalore about Chicago weather while you wait for you computer to restart - priceless
Looking forward to learning and laughing.
