My computer is getting old. I’m driven to distraction by a message on startup saying that I didn’t shut it down right the last time I used it. Look Bill, I tried to, but clicking “shut down” just doesn’t make it shut down !!!
Anyway I understand that new ones actually fit on your desk these days and you don’t even have to type cd\whatever after you’ve slotted your floppy disk into the A drive……….
So I’ve junked my desktop and in 5 minutes my antique laptop goes the same way. (But I’ve kept a Sinclair ZX80 and pre-Windows Amstrad 8086 for nostalgic reasons.) Hooray!! For the first time in 30 years I now don’t have a working computer at home !! I just hope Santa got my letter……………….
