I'm typing this on secondary computer which is itself showing signs of wear from old age.
Remember when I said that I dropped primary and things looked really bad but then it got better. It didn't get better.
The new problems were simply more insidious. A gradual increase in instability that at first was so little it was hard to notice. A tiny crack in the wondrous screen that lead to me getting that particular model.
Few days ago the instability reached the point where I got slammed by multiple blue screens of death in a row and worried that I might not be able to keep it running long enough to do anything.
So I knew it had to go in for repairs, obviously. But just now, without apparent cause, it hit me with something that I never saw coming and can't work around.
The keyboard stopped working. Not all of it, just certain keys with no apparent rhyme or reason to which ones. And then I did something very stupid.
I turned it on then off again without first checking that the keys needed to type in my password worked.
It turns on and off wonderfully. It is physically impossible to type in my password. Unless I find a random USB keyboard lying around here (I won't) I'm not even going to be able to move important files to place where I can still use them before I send it in for repairs.
As I said, my computer is fucked.
Sometimes I forget the obvious. Ease of access on screen keyboard and I'm in. No way in Hell I'm doing this shit much. But at least I should be able to back up/migrate important files so I can have them while computer is away.
