I swapped out my almost-new laptop with the wireless problem for a new laptop (same model) which seems to be working okay . . . except that the wireless is rather slow. Sir John suggests that maybe this model just has problems with its wireless card, and urges that if I have problems again I should insist on exchanging for something else.
Le sigh. Le sigh enorme. I hate setting up/breaking in a new computer. It’s stressful and gets in the way of other work, though sometimes, obviously, it’s necessary in order to get any work done at all. I really hope this one will settle down and behave. I want to get back to a normal schedule instead of having to take time to visit computer stores (two trips this week) and do unusual messing about with electronics.
So if I suddenly go silent for another long period, suspect my laptop before you worry about my health.
