Nice to have backup
Update, 2:29 a.m.: So, anyhow, I'm processing my laptop grief partly by staying up late, drinking, and watching TV. I've gone so far as to reset my alarm to 7:08, even though this was the week when I was supposed to start getting up at 5. The upshot of all this is that I'm pleased to report that The Mighty Quinn is a pretty good movie. That's what Ebert and Siskel said back in the day, but somehow I never bought a ticket.
Addendum: Maybe I should mention that when my laptop died I was in the midst of composing a post about the joys of front porch blogging, an activity that had only become available to me in the aftermath of the post office declaring that they would refuse to deliver mail to my address unless my landlord replaced the old porch with a structure capable of sustaining human occupancy. There's some yin and yang in there.
