My laptop is dead and is refusing to appropriate resurrection life this time. In fact, it's more like it's in a coma and refusing to wake up: it shows the power light when I switch it on, but nothing else happens. It has done this before to varying degrees but never quite like this nor quite as stubbornly. I have a feeling I'm going to have to pay through the nose to have it fixed... Meanwhile, I can't use internet or email (rather important for student contact) without going to the internet place on the corner, and can't do quite a lot of work (admin, prayer letter, post-mission questionnaire analysis) which is on my computer, keep in touch with family and friends (skype, msn, blog, email), look up Brussels public transport times or news, play music, or listen to sermons on Hebrews by Piper (which is perhaps the most disappointing, when it's in addition to all the rest!). Rather frustrating. And rather frustrating to be so dependent on a Thing.
