My desktop computer, Scoundrel, is under the weather. His harddrive took a nosedive a few days back, and it will be a bit before the scurvy lad is back up and dancing. In the meantime, I have my laptop. As nice and helpful as it is, it doesn't have my Outlook files on it, so there's a lot of reference info I can't get at right now, and that means I can't get my monthly Postcards From Industralia newsletter out. Also, the laptop isn't mighty enough to run Second Life, so I'll be missing my storytelling hour tonight (again). I won't lose any data because we are careful about backups and redundancies, but it is an inconvenience. I'm offsetting all this by indulging in a binge of the original Dark Shadows. Bad acting and horrific production values will make the day wonderful after all!
