I'm having a bad day!
First of all, it's Monday. Monday's are never good because it means the weekend is over and it's back to the old grind.
But, to make this a particularly bleak Monday, I came upstairs to my home office, switched on my work laptop. I hear two beeps, it flashes up "fan error", and then it turns off. Incredulous, I tried it again. And then I tried it again, and again (what is it they say about insanity - a person who keeps doing the same thing repeatedly expecting different results). It was working fine last night when I shut it down. This morning it's not working.
I called up technical support and they are overnight shipping me a replacement laptop which I should have tomorrow morning. But, today I'm dead in the water.
I was able to contact a co-worker and get the call-in details for the teleconferences I have today. But, I can't do much other than listen since I can't access anything on my laptop (email, files, documents). It will be just like working, but with my hands tied behind my back.
The only good news here is that the replacement laptop they are sending me is the same exact model as the one I have. So, I should be able to move my harddrive from the old to the new and be back up and running (with all of my files intact).
