Goodbye Portius

Almost 2 years to the date when we first met, my great travelling companion and personal oracle Portius has perished and is no more. I am talking about my most beloved tool, my surf-supporter and writing enabler, the Asus Eee 1005PX laptop netbook which has now moved on to binary heaven.

To put it mildly, I am feeling quite P….. off and F…… annoyed not to mention being !#%@&*! over the fact that computers are made to last only for as long as the warranty does.

Now where did that image go?

The guy at the repair-shop just said “bin it!”. How do you just throw a friend out?

It was such a fine machine and, oddly enough, if I had the money I would go and by another one just like it. Poor Portius…

So, ladies and gentlemen, if we put these two facts together (no computer & not much money) we arrive at the conclusion that there will probably be a bit fewer posts on this blog here in the near future.

I will do my best not to let this happen though, and if any of you great people out there have a solution for me, do let me know!
