Last night, I had a Blue Screen of Death on my old Sony Vaio laptop. The system configuration is now corrupt, so I can’t recover the OS and access my old photos. I should be able to save the pictures when I use the hard drive as an external drive.
This has had me thinking about a future computer. My current computer is a fairly large laptop. It’s portable, of course, but it’s a bit too large for me to take anywhere easily. I’d like to work on my writing on a smaller, cheaper notebook computer. In the future, I may buy a netbook sized computer for that purpose. My wife has an iPad, which she doesn’t use. I could use it, but I’d like an actual keyboard to type on, rather than a touch screen. A touch screen isn’t ideal for touch typing, as you can’t feel the location of the keys. I touch type, and would rather not look at the keyboard to type. I could get a keyboard for it, but I’d prefer to use Windows.
It’ll be great to write anywhere I am. It’ll increase the amount of time I can write. I’m looking forward to it.
