Thread: bought me a laptop

  1. #1

    Default bought me a laptop

    Got myself a little laptop. Completely fed up of using the handicapped system in the hospital (six inch long qwerty keyboard + firewall hell)....

    So went down the local PCworld when they had an end of line sale on ... got a Compaq Presario with Dual core Intel 1.6ghz Procs, 1Gig Ram, 15.4" screen DVD/CD RW+ running Vista.




    Was reduced from 430 to 330 for clearance but had no battery ... so I offered the manager 300 ($600 ish) and he said yes. Stuff is not as cheap here as in the US but I consider this a nice bargain .. only going to cost me 35 to buy a battery on ebay.

    Then I got myself moved into a bed on the east side of the hospital next to a window ... the building opposite my window has a free wireless public access wifi - gets a little slow and jumpy in the week but works real fine in the evenings weekends.

    Just make sure the blue pill doesn't have a little V imprinted on it!



    As for the laptop, not a bad buy at all.... now you have to run SuperPi on it!

    V for valium? ... I'm on the yellow ones for control of muscle spasm (Diazepam 5mg x 3 a day) blues are 10mg. But they are wearing off as I have been on them for two years ... sooo we are currently in a new "drug experimentation phase" that is playing hell with me - mainly because they are trying to treat me for "Neuropathic pain" instead of the spasms based on a fowl and fictitious report by a Neurologist.

    .. so the current prescription is Amitriptyline - the antidepressant - which is known not to have Muscle relaxant properties though is good for Neuropathic pain and is therefore doing me no good whatsoever but is likely to get me addicted to yet another useless drug.

    Problem with doctors here is if you don't "comply" with their ideas you are not going to get help - and if you do "comply" when they are plain wrong they walk off pretending they have done their job.

    It's strange that you're having problems with doctors.... but then again a lot of doctors are full of themselves xP

    Interestingly also a BIGTIME recreational drug with the young in this country who want to stay up all night having "fun" ... and don't seem to realise that when they are over thirty, in all likelihood, they will need to plaster themselves in bondo to get a stiffy.

    Yes ... that chimes with my experience and quite literally with my description of them ... "They have their heads so far up their a***s they don't know what the sun looks like any more" - which would indeed make them "full of themselves".
