Not really, but I’m not a happy camper right now. I took the laptop to Best Buy on Friday because the AC power connection wasn’t working properly. Of course it’s one of those repairs where the computer has to be shipped off to the Geek Squad. Instead of saying, “Yes, please send it today, and while you’re at it, please back up all my data files,” I said, “No, I’ll take it home and back up my files, and then I’ll bring it back next week.”
This clearly tempted fate beyond its ability to resist. Friday night Windows crashed, and even after spending two hours running the “repair” function, it still won’t work. So I’m sitting in Georgia with no laptop, just hoping that the Geek Squad guys can work their magic next week and at least recover my files. Which include my email address book and my mystery novel, with no backup of this week’s work. Aaaarrrrggghh!
The one tiny ray of sunshine in all this mess is the extended service plan. If the Geek Squad can’t fix the problem, I get a new computer. Again. That would make the third one in three years.
