My worst week with Betaal !

I (un)lovingly call my office laptop as Betaal. Its stuck on my back always, its heavy, and its a pain in the ass. Its worse than the real Betaal, because the only moral story I've learnt so far is ALWAYS TAKE A BACKUP !!!

While i was busy carrying the corpse of my laptop across different blocks of building, across different locations in Bangalore, there were other itsby bitsy things that cheered me up. Making a random list ....

* Finding a woolen cap that you wore when you were a kid, and even better, knowing it still looks cute on your head !
* Asking someone if the empty chairs are taken, only to discover that these bunch of scared looking people in neatly ironed formals are your juniors.
* Getting a direct bus home, and being home within an hour, in peak traffic time. In B'lore, that is a BIG deal !
* Pineapple passion icecream sundae ! :P
* Finding an old unused table lamp and finding it perfect for your use.
* Pasta !
* Not missing facebook. Not one bit.

I have also discovered, that the Blue Screen ( of Death ) is my worst nightmare .

he he he! My laptop has been to all the places in bangalore that i have been to :) And lugging it doesn't seem such a chore anymore.
And totally understand the getting the direct bus home! Getting a seat above that is definitely a manifestation of ajji's puNya karya. :D

I tried to get rid of him, and got a new one from my company. But this one needs to be booted twice everytime i try to get to my desktop. I'm dreading the lengthy procedure that i've to go through to get this one fixed now.
And no, i dont work in a Govt office.

@ QG

Its not the carrying around that i mind, i even cycle 25 kms on some days carrying my Betaal. Its the S/W issues and the tortuously drawn-out procedures that tick me off.
