The computer was down…

October 4, 2008

…so I have totally skipped on posting. Our laptop power cord died last week (we’re talking Sept 22nd here, people) so we’ve been unable to charge our battery since then. I ordered a new one, but it would take a couple of days to arrive. Since we couldn’t use it anyway, we decided we might as well get the backlight fixed (you know, the part that gives the screen light). The screen would work if it was at the appropriate angle, but if it was wider than a 60 degree angle or so, it wouldn’t work. This comes from having your 2-year-old pull on it from behind… just in case you wanted to know. You shouldn’t let them do that. We were able to get our dinosaur-of-a-desktop running enough to check e-mails, but it is SO slow – I didn’t want to spend any more time than I had to in front of it! Anyway, the “2 or 3 day” job on the laptop turned into an 8 day job (and that’s not counting days the shop was closed). However, we now have a laptop that has 1) power and 2) a visible screen at any angle. I guess it was worth it.

Just because our computer wasn’t working DOESN’T mean I wasn’t using the camera… so beware: many pictures follow. Hope you enjoy them!
