how to kill a laptop

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas - I certainly did, lovely times with family and friends, fantastic food, great presents and time to relax and enjoy the special time of year.

One spanner in the works of a totally wonderful Christmas was killing my laptop though! I stupidly managed to spill hot tea all over it and of course it was instant death - and nope, I hadn't saved any of my data...gggrr!

It's gone to the computer hospital today to see if there's any chance of it being resucitated, or at least retrieving the data - fingers crossed. In the meantime I've been able to hop on my mum's computer when I can to check emails etc but I won't be able to post any projects to my blog which is so annoying - you really don't realise how much you rely on computers til they don't work do you?

Still, if I use the time to get back in my craft room after a break over Christmas here's hoping I'll have some things to show when the saga resolves itself!

Til then, wishing everyone a wonderful new year - here's to a healthy and happy 2009!

Awww Kate that is horrendous - it was bad enough when mine was away for a day to rid it of the viruses I had - it's terrible without it!
Now mine won't read any of my discs - I'm fearing the worst again! At least everything else is working for now!!
Glad you had a lovely Xmas

hugs

Argh- I know when I had repairs on my laptop I felt lost until it returned home.. I hope they can at least get the data off.
Glad Christmas was good otherwise!

Sorry to hear about your laptop. Hope they can retrieve your data! If your like me you could use some time away from the computer to craft. I find I get to busy blog hopping and forget to actually make something LOl

Man, sorry to hear about the computer. I hope the data can be saved.

Since I discovered blogging, I would be going crazy right now, if that had happened to me.

Happy New Year!

Hi Kate, Sorry to hear of your probs - my pc picked up a few virus/trojan invasions last year and had to go to the pc doc, and I was amazed at how much I missed being cut-off, should I say logged off? Hope it gets sorted out soon. Missed you!
Best wishes, ikki x

Sorry about your laptop! Mine crashed in October and I was without one for almost a month. I wasn't able to save anything off of mine, hopefully you will be able to! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a great New Year's Eve!
