Since I got a laptop, I no longer spend hours in front of the office desktop PC trying to get tired for bed.
Initially, I watched Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), episodes of Never the Twain and interviews with Frankie Howerd and Kenneth Williams on YouTube. Then wrestling, realising that I’d only been a WWF fan for 1 year in 1992. Then I realised there were a number of full length films on there. Married With Children has been the recent craze! I remember it being on Sky One all the time when we got analogue Sky TV back in the early 90s.
Do people online shop in their sleep? The first you’d know about it would be confirmation emails in the morning, or if you go to work it may all be too late and the stuff’s been dispatched.
My Toshiba laptop is 1 year and 2 weeks old, and suddenly the track pad is right clicking on everything without me pressing the right click button, then Windows Live Mail won’t run because it says it wasn’t installed properly or is out of memory, desktop gadgets don’t load, Windows Update doesn’t run, lots of things just stopped working. Even system restore, which was my first thought – it said there was an error on trying first time, then there’s no option to even try it again now. So looks like I’ll be re-imaging it with the recovery DVDs they make you burn when you first switch it on.
