Broken Computer :(

I was halfway through the rewatch for today when suddenly my keyboard stopped working - so I was like "okay, I will turn this computer off and on again, and that will fix everything".... only it will not turn on again.

So, yeah... that's where I'm at. I use that computer for work, so I'm sort of panicking because I can't earn a living until it is repaired. And if it can't be repaired, I guess I just cry?

Anyway... um... rewatch will show up on the weekend, and in the meantime, please think good computer thoughts for me. It looks like I'll be taking it in for repairs in the morning. :(

Sorry to hear you are having computer problems. I had some bad luck with mine last year. Was without a computer for about 2 weeks and then to fix was several hundred dollars. Yuck! I hope yours isn't that tragic and you get it up and running again soon. Since its a work computer, shouldn't they pay for the repair?? It would make sense to me. Good luck!

I'm self-employed, so sadly "they" ARE paying for the repair - but "they" are me. :P

I just dropped it off at the repair place. I lose at least 100/work-day with it gone, so when they call this afternoon to give me the verdict, it may might more sense to just purchase something new if it's going to be any sort of long wait. Not that I can afford that either, but I definitely can't afford to go without. Yarr... we'll see! Thanks for the luck wish!

Yea, going without a computer these days is tantamount to a catastrophe, especially if you are self-employed, then its an epic catastrophe. I had a short time I was self-employed and my computer stopped working on me. Luckily I was able to get it back working in a short enough time and without too much money. I hope that is your case. **fingers crossed**

It worked! The computer has been returned to me and is functioning again! ($100 later... but that's better then the cost of a new computer!)

Yay!!!
