SONOFABITCH COMPUTER!
(blogathon 2003)
It absolutely figures! I've had no problems at all with this computer after untold months of 7-days-a-week use, then the one day that I really need it to perform without a hassle, it bombs on me. Unbelievable.

I'd love to blame the usual culprit, Windows, but it appears (from a very hasty diagnostic) that the real problem was with the battery. I removed it, and was able to start the machine up again no problem. That's good, but also bad, since I laid out a couple of hundred bucks for this damn replacement battery! Not happy.

Anyway, hopefully that'll be the only snafu for the remainder of this trip.
