It's dead.

Laptop went belly-up last night. Or, more specifically, the video hardware. The BIOS screen has an ugly hash of colour covering the screen, and it bluescreens when it tries to boot into Windows GUI. I think Gotita did it - she loves to

It had a good life - we bought it at least seven years ago. So long ago that I can't even remember when. It's traveled quite a bit and it's been a pretty decent home cinema too. It's become slower and slower over the past few years, to the point that I'm not too disappointed it's finally dead. Time for a replacement!

It's been at least seven years since I last looked over laptop hardware, so it's time to get re-acquainted with what's new. ZOMG, ASUS makes about a hundred different models...

On a completely separate topic, we're absolutely loving the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast from HowStuffWorks.com. It's historynerdtastic!
