It's been about two weeks since my laptop went on sick leave. It just did not want to get up one morning. I ran diagnostics, tried starting it from the disc, but with no success. It has been in the hands of Maru's school tech guys for about 2 weeks. The one tech assures her that he can get it up and working again.... We'll see.... In the meantime, we're not on the computer much; just posting emails and twitters from my phone.
