The hiatus will continue until my laptop can stop shitting itself. I don't know if it's a Windows 7 thing, a user thing, or an ASUS thing, but it's obnoxious, especially since the laptop is barely a year old.

Edit, 1/22/2010: Shortly after posting the above message, the laptop finished itself off and now will no longer boot. I honestly wasn't even touching it when it went down for the final count: it was doing a virus scan, froze, then died. It took me over 6 months to find a laptop that met all my criteria (hi, I'm picky), and so far as I can tell, I didn't even do anything to hasten this premature demise, so I feel ASUS and Microsoft need to get together and give me a new laptop. Great, great, great, great. Absolutely wonderful.

Chuang, 26, from Chongqing, south west China, was so potty about computers his family had a headstone carved for him in the shape of a monitor giving his dates of birth and death.

Stonemasons also included a keyboard, mouse and a camera with a picture of tragic Chuang to complete the tombstone tribute.

Regular updates to resume soon-ish. You'd think I'd be more productive on this blog when I didn't have schoolwork to fuss over.
