I apologize if I am boring everyone to death with my work computer woes, but after the blue screen of death yesterday the computer tech found me a new CPU and switched it out, while giving me strict instructions not to ever turn it off or restart it or I would have the same problem I had with the old one. The rumor is there are new laptops coming next month so I just have to hold out that long. So I got online and this afternoon I sat down to do paperwork and the outlet shorted out (I have a heater in there too as my room is freezing all the time, and it went off too). So they had to put in a work order to get it repaired, and apparently that could take weeks to be addressed. So I asked for an extension cord and they finally found me one only for me to realize that it's all 5 outlets in my room that were affected. So, no computer for 3 weeks anyway despite the new CPU. Even if they get me the new laptop I still have nowhere in my office to plug it in. And no heater.
The computer tech and I got to the point where we were just laughing about it. This makes the 6th time this school year I've had a computer failure. It almost seems like someone has it in for me!
