My Laptop Died

February 07, 2011  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: Not Exactly Random   4 Comments

Sorry for going dark, my 9.3 readers. My laptop died. It’s not just a simple laptop, either–it’s specifically configured for security access to various places.

So when I got a new laptop, I had to install all the work applications back on it.

Then restore my backup files.

Then I had to encrypt the hard drive.

Then I had to install all the certificates.

Then I had to have helpdesk install the rest of the certificates because I am a dork and couldn’t figure it out.

Then I had to like, yanno, WORK. Because my client gives me money and then expects me to, like, produce results. SHEESH.

It’s a great new laptop, though. Very fast. Screen bright. And, it kinda looks sexy.

I’ve gotten everything under control now. I think it’s time for a book review of a smoking hot sci-fi book, no?

Love ya. Mean it.

    yes, review of a smoking hot sci-fi book sounds good!
    Nice to see you back, great to hear about the sexy new laptop. Can I confess that half the reason I agreed to switching from my old PC to the family laptop was because it would mean I’d get to upgrade more often?? lol when I had a PC I only ever got my husbands cast offs as upgrades – this way I’ll get a whole new shiny all to myself 🙂 Anyways, enough rambling. Write more. Blog more. We miss you. (well, I do.)

      I’ve also been working on the Secret Squirrel Contemporary YA novel.

      I am nearing the end, too. 25k more to go.

    Oh, dear. Computers dying can totally screw up your life. I’m sorry to hear that happened. I’m glad it’s all better now, though! I backup my work on 4 hard drives. I’m a bit paranoid…

      Thank you Michelle.

      I also have four backups, one even in a separate city. You can never be to paranoid about data loss!
