Leave Of Absence

Vezok's Friend


HAL, my trusty Laptop is injured. Injured, because it is not a software but a hardware problem. He doesn't like lateral movement much these days.

To make it short: Something is up with the display connection to the boards inside, either with the connection to the graphiccard or with the cable itself. There is no data-loss and everything is still performing well but it quite frustrating to have your screen fail on you just because you lifted the Laptop up so the SD-slot was easier to access.

So I called the company, I'm still in the warranty period and just traveling a lot is not a good argument for bad treatment of a laptop because...well, because that is what you do with Laptops, you take them with you.

Today they are going to come to pick it up. Shipping and repair is usually taking up to a week, according to the guy from support.

Which means this: This week, my ability to be online and to work on my art is severely compromised. I will try to keep up here and in other places but I'll be rare.

The week after, I'll be on holiday. I do not know wether or not I will have the laptop then but I prolly won't take it with me.


Long story short: Don't expect to see me much the next two weeks. Though I will try to be around.
