Once again, I have worn out a laptop. I hate when this happens. First of all, it's never at a convenient time. Second, it invariably means that I also have to figure out what software has been lost in the data transfer...and then either re-load it or replace it. Both are expensive--one in time, and the other in actual dollars...and time. And finally, it means learning the new hardware, system software, and customizing it all to my idiosyncratic need for same-ness in spite of the advances in technology that force me to learn new things.
This time is no different. Sigh.
