This is what it could look like when one completely deconstructs a life as one knows it, and how to build from the ground up. Alternatively, this is a fresh look at an old story. The fine art of falling apart.

Well, instead of sleeping last night, I was mulling over which sort of computer I will be buying (at some point). The new Hewlit-Packard that I procured in August started with hiccups nearly the moment I received it, and then just decided two days ago to not boot up at all.

I shouldn't be surprised, given the amount of hassle it was to get the computer in the first place (ok, that doesn't really count) but my original laptop was quirky and eventually died about 3 months before the one year warranty was up.

So, next time, I'm just going to get a Mac. Everyone I know has one, I might as well join the crowd. I don't doubt it will have it's own issues, but maybe not so much. Who knows.

The week has gone by quickly, and I find myself running around trying to clean up this week's accesses and not much hope for the dishes that are still in the sink. I don't know why I have such an aversion to dishes, I just do.

Ok? Ok then. I guess I'd better get back to it. My laptop will be back in 7 to 9 days, completely wiped clean.

    Macs do have their issues, but I still stand by having one of those, instead of any Windows machine you can name.

    That said, it is Very Very important to have a Mac authorized repair place nearby--in your case, Little Current would be wonderful, Espanola would be nice, Sudbury would be more probable. Macs can die on you, too. The one I'm typing this on died two months after we got it, and needed a new hard drive. top

    Yeah, laptops die fast. They're expected to be obsolete in what 2-3 years? You can also read online reviews at different sites so you don't get a lemon model... top
