You know the rules. No staying up late on a school night.

My laptop is a little long in the tooth. It's still a dual core machine, and in good condition so I'm trying to breathe some new life into it. Well lately technology hates me, I'm convinced of it.

I put in a new hard drive, everything was going well, then shortly later the fan quit. I took a panel off the bottom and have been using a laptop cooler to keep it from shutting down, not the most convenient solution, but it worked. Today the new fan came in the mail (a $7 fix, YIPPIE), got it in, it works, keeping the machine cool. An hour later, the NEW hard drive failed!!!

So here I am with the old hard drive in, it's cluttered and sluggish, but the machine is still working, could be worse I suppose!

Over the last month I've had to fix two other computers in the house, luckily since I can do it myself, the fixes have been cheap.

Bakechef, I would get an external hard drive. They aren't expensive nowadays and then you can use it when you eventually upgrade the laptop.

I'd put the new drive in to make the machine "fresh", I made the old laptop drive into an external and mounted it on the network, so i'd still have access to the files. Now I'll wait for the new drive, and set up the new operating system all over again! Oh, well....

31 and I actually listened too! Went to bed at 8 with Daniel, feels good to get 10 hours sleep. No wonder Daniel has so much energy!

I know the feeling. About twice a week, I get tired enough to sleep ten or more hours straight through. But when I wake up, I am wide awake. Don't even need stretching time.
