Despite ProjectFrugality, my plan was to escape early from the SML Xmas party and go lash out on a new laptop this afternoon. I got talking and talking and was surprisingly having a fair bit of fun1 – looked up and it was already 6pm. No laptop for me today!
This was quite fortunate because when Don came home his laptop displayed the same connectivity (or lack thereof) symptoms, then Joe/Frank told us he had experienced similar a couple of days ago. Joe/Frank told us what he had found to fix it … and voila … all better! This was indeed momentous! That excellent moment when the offspring know more than you do.
I definitely intend to muddle along with my lovely dell for as long as possible.
1 Though I am now quite a bit sunburned from being outdoors for most of the afternoon.
