My Precious, my magic box, my creative tool, gateway to another world…
After it’s lifeline (the cord) was attacked and bitten to shreds by the hounds of hell (our new puppy) an attempt was made to save it by hooking up a universal power supply.
Alas, by forces unknown, this caused My Precious to relapse and burn out in a mere 24 hours. God nor Google can offer any explanation.
I tried everything… Mouth to mouth, the Heimlich, electric pads. "Stay with me! Just stay with ME!" When I saw the life would not be returning to its cold blank screen, a single tear rolled down my cheek as I whispered sweet nothings into the speaker hole.
My husband found me, withered in the corner with bug-like eyes, hair matted and hiding in the shadows, sporting only a dirty loin cloth.
Needless to say, we’re going to attempt restoring life to my dear precious as soon as possible.
Until then, I’m sorry I won’t be around as much this week:(
I'm so sorry~ that's a huge loss :(
Oh my gosh you poor thing! I hope your precious is up and running soon!
...that is all...
Hee hee - I loved your hyperbole - cracked me up. And I'm terribly sorry about your laptop!
My condolences--it is an awful feeling.
Deepest sympathies, may you find strength and comfort at this difficult time.
I'm so sorry! My daughter once fried my laptop by doing an arial spin right into my freshly poured glass of Coke. Yeah, I cried.
On the bright side, your data is probably ok.
Good luck with the fixing!
Had this really cute bunny once (Cadbury--haha) and he chewed some speaker wires and hubby STILL blames that bunny for killing his receiver. I contend the stereo was 15 years old and gonna blow anyway.
Hope you get back up and running soon
Ohhhhh . . . not good. :( Best wishes on getting it back!
A writer's worst nightmare!
My laptop was acting up yesterday and I really thought it was on the outs. As I processed that information, I began to feel more and more panicked. The laptop has survived -- for now -- but I'm getting nervous.
I hope you work things out ASAP!
What is this new hound's name? Will she/he be forgiven?
Sympathies for your loss.
oh, puppies! My cat actually pulls stunts like this. so sorry~ :o\
Awwwwww!! Big hugs to you and your dear Precious and of course your sweet puppy!!!!
:-) Good luck restoring life to your laptop!!!
Awe no!!!!! Good luck fixing it! (I hear hot sauce on the cords or hot pepper juice will keep pups away. But I donno from experience.)
Oh no! I hope it can be fixed. I'm so sorry but I must admit, I loved the LotR reference.
I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope it gets well soon!
ah I feel your pain, hang in there
Oh my what a tragedy. I hope it coems back from the dead!
Oh noooo! I'm so sorry. =(
I am so sorry for your loss. I feel your pain. And all those cliches. Sob.
Oh no, no one can survive without their precious!
Noooooo. Hope it comes back to life soon. Fingers crossed.
Oh no. I hope you were backing up. If not don't despair, the Hard Disk Drive should be intact and functional, you just have to remove it from the laptop, install it into an external USB case, connect it to another computer, and your data should all be intact. If you're not comfortable with this take it to a corner computer shop, they shouldn't charge too much.
Email me if you need to know more.
I am sorry for your loss.
I hope it returns to life very soon.
That's AWFUL!!! I hope everything gets sorted out and you didn't lose anything!
Good Luck! That totally stinks. My parents have a puppy we refer to as land shark, we don't bring the laptop there... or anything valuable.
oh, that is like the worst thing that could happen to a writer. I remember when my computer crapped out and was being fixed; it was hell!
Ah, I'm so sorry! I hope everything is fixed, and soon.
