I'm back

... and back to me!

A word of warning: be very, very, very careful when using headphones in your laptop and simultaneously trying to carry the laptop across the room. In fact, don't even try at all. Because headphones have wires which get caught on things and make computers jump out of hands and crash on the floor.

So yeah, I dropped my computer, and then it didn't work. And I am a poor postgrad musician with no money to buy a new one. I really just wanted to turn back time by about 30 seconds.

Anyway, to cut a long, and rather boring, story short, the next day I had a brainwave and realised that my insurance covers 'accidental damage'. So there was a week of phone calls to the insurance people and the computer service people, to get quotes, and decide exactly who was going to authorise the repair. Then three weeks for the parts to arrive at the service centre. Apparently Apple was out of stock of some essential part.

Finally it was all repaired and ready for me to pick up on Tuesday. So now I have a computer again!
