Welcome back, It’s excuse time…
I’ve recently had possibly the worst thing’ happen to me. OK, I need to chill out it’s a first world problem. My laptop has broken which is a bummer especially as I’m just about to launch this new site, amongst other things.
Picture this: Today you are going on holiday. You rush through the station after finding out your train is leaving from the furthest platform with only 5 minutes to go. You make it with just a minute to spare. After recovering from the brisk walk and getting to your seat you grab your laptop so you can get to work on all of today’s crazy projects. Turning it on you find this:

This roughly translates as, I can’t find any of your files. Turns out my computer decided to break down en-route to the Lake District!
It follows Murphy’s Law “Anything that can go wrong, will.”
Add on to that Finagle’s corollary ” … at the worst possible moment” is reasonably well known in the tech world as needing to be prepared for anything – I wasn’t! My back up hard drive is at home and my spare hard drive is at home home (aka my actual home in South London).
I had planned to use the train journey as time to focus down on writing blog posts I had start drafting on my laptop. Due to the unfortunate circumstances I just did some reading and attempted to blog from my phone.
“Anything that can go wrong, will — at the worst possible moment.” – Finagle’s corollary to Murphy’s Law
Never the less the show must go on – hence the post, and I’ll do my best to get up and running without my laptop. I have a few posts ready to follow and a couple of videos I’ve enjoyed recently. There is a small chance I can get my laptop back up and working and I’ll keep you posted,
