My computer got into a state.

Solid state that is.

My last computer woes began with a failing conventional hard drive. So what did I do? I bought a 750 gigabyte solid state drive to replace the failing drive.

I was a fool.

Even though it had a three year manufacturer’s warranty.

The bloody thing lasted less than six months and died a sudden death taking most of my data with it.

The one bright side of the story is that I contacted the retailer, Amazon, by secure mail this morning and had a reply two hours later. They are sending a courier to collect it, and I should get a full refund in two or three days. Well done that company.

The new computer is now up and running even though I spent several days trying to set up Mrs FE’s Email account. I don’t know why I bother as she never reads her mail anyway.


  1. If you had bought one of those new Ubuntu Linux watches you could have wiped your arse on it in disgust when it stopped working.

    Shit brown being the Ubuntu default colour.

  2. Naturally, you had a back up....

    ...didn't you?!?!?!?

  3. Two types of computer user. Those who have lost data, and those who will lose data.
