Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Hooray!

I have struggled valiantly with my Toshiba Shit Series laptop, bought as an emergency replacement when my HP went into hospital last year. I use it about once every 3 months at most.

When I bought it, I had wanted a Sony, but they were out of stock in the department store I had chosen (because of its 2-year free guarantees - joke).

Today I bought a better model than the one I wanted back then, with oodles of memory, and it's

VERY PINK
Just today it was reduced by £100, and I got it from a different store (Marks and Spencer for those who know it, renowned for good customer service) again with a free 2-year guarantee.
As for the Toshiba, I'm going to remaster it (like I was forced to do when it was all of 4 days old and lost half its programmes for no reason) and give it, sticky keys and all, to my friend, in the hope that she will finally get a broadband connection. As the offending item cost a massive £800 only just over a year ago - and still has many months of useless guarantee left - I hope that she will make better use of it than I have.
