Gonna be offline for a bit

My laptop died last night – it had been suffering from overheating recently, and either the overheating killed something on the motherboard, or the i8kfan application I was running to override the BIOS’s fan settings corrupted the BIOS. Either way, it’s a bit shagged and refuses to start up. A little bit of me wants to repair it, but the cost of spares (new motherboard, and it needs a new battery as well) and the fact it’s two years old means I’ll probably just buy a new one. With one thing or another keeping me busy, it will probably be a bit of time before I’m fully equipped with a new computer again…
