A laptop crash is possibly the crappiest thing that can happen to a person. It's right up there with a crappy internet connection. And it happened to me. As if a crappy internet connection was not enough.
Actually, things were pretty hunky dory in the run-up to the crash. My net connection was faster than it had ever been, and summer had really kicked into Bombay. Just like always. And then it had to happen. Without any warning, just like that, CRASH. My laptop simple refused to start.
So, I take my computer to the engineer, and he told me that things were pretty messed up. And he said he'd try and see if he can do something about it, without me having to get a new hard disk. Three days later I get my laptop back, with a new hard disk.
So now I've spent the past couple of days getting the house in order; downloading my applications, re-installing my games and basically, trying to get my laptop to look like it did before.
And I've also been wondering about how the urge to blog is inversely proportional to the number of days left for an exam. Just before my boards, I found myself writing a new draft every two days. And now, I can't think of anything to post about.
