What’s your PC Horror Story?
We all have a PC Horror Story to share, which is why I’m asking you to share yours! It could be a story about shopping for a computer, a computer catastrophe, a backup gone wrong, or crazy error messages.
My story involves my laptop. Now this laptop was kind of important to me as a bloggers because it was my ONLY computer at the time – it wasn’t a backup or a second computer, it was my ONLY computer. I made the mistake of enjoying a drink while I was blogging – one of those drinks with a large cap that screws on (I know you can already see where this story is going). I spilled my drink on my laptop keyboard (tragedy!). I immediately flipped the laptop over to minimize the penetration of the liquid. I then was under the illusion that I could get my laptop repaired. Unfortunately it was not repairable, but I tried (and I spent money on it). I finally gave up and “buried” it and invested in a desktop PC to blog from.
I learned three lessons from my PC Horror Story:
1. Don’t drink & blog while on a laptop.
2. If you do drink while on a laptop, use a spillproof container
3. If you spill your drink on a laptop, don’t spend money trying to repair it
