Here I pour out the sad story of the much-loved family computer. It had a happy life up until about three weeks ago. First, it began behaving erratically. It suddenly developed a profound tendency to restart without warning. If that wasn’t enough, the hard drive then crashed completely. Now it sits waiting to be "repaired."
Now I’m stuck with my laptop, which doesn’t let me do much except for simple tasks. Ah, well. I hope that there are some out there who can sympathize with me.
