I've written fairly extensively about my spontaneously combusting laptop and the consequences of its occasional explosions (i.e. I can't draw gazes longingly at TFP event ) but nothing about my solution to it so
I'm getting a new laptop!!
It's a long story
To summarise, I was involved in a car crash around 7 months ago. I wasn't harmed in the long term but the insurance company filed a claim anyway and I'm expecting the money in to buy a less volatile laptop any day now
Any day now
