Photograph of the day

I am posting this picture simply because I think it's quite a spectacular photograph.

The saga continues

The sad saga over my laptop continues. I swopped the harddrive, wonderful, everything worked...for about a day....and then my screen, well, it just kind of disappeared and went black, and that's the way it has remained. So now I have to take it in again, and it looks like I might have to invest in a new computer. I've manged to hook the laptop up to a normal monitor, so if everything works I may be able to get back to blogging until I take it in for repairs.

Laptop woes not over

Well, I still don't have my laptop back and am definately experiencing blogging withdrawal symptoms. The new harddrive was apparently faulty, so I am in the process of getting it replaced. Then I'll have to see what the HP verdict is. In the meantime, I will try to resume blogging in as much as I can given the circumstances

Blogging problems

My apologies for the lack of updates recently. Here follows a litany of excuses:

1. I just moved into my new house two days ago after staying with family for the past 6 weeks so my life is a bit upside down at the moment.

2. The harddrive on my laptop crashed. I got a new harddrive. Laptop refused to detect new harddrive. Laptop is now at HP. I am praying that a simple solution will be found.

So basically, without my laptop - seeing that I can't really blog from work, I won't be able to blog until the problrm is sorted out. Hopefully I can be blogging again by sometime next week.
