I am still planet bound, not by choice however...
My trusty laptop appeared not so trusty after all. I had intended to buy a new laptop in January but with my current laptop requiring £200 worth of repairs I spend the extra budget to buy a laptop now.

I had hoped to buy a ASUS G50 for its sexy looks and nice specs but it is a tough little machine to get hold of in the UK. Its replacement model is the ASUS G60 and is very sweet indeed but £300 over my budget. anyways who cares. I went for a hand made laptop with better specs and even though she is ugly as sin she is a beast on the inside.
I have a friend who has offered to do an art job on the case to make it look more appealing. Skull and bones design I am thinking =)
Anyways I hope for the machine to be with me by Friday the 13th just for good luck =( and I shall voyage into space again very soon after. Thank god for the Capsuleer app to keep me in the loop of what is happening in the meantime...
