Magic Monday – Hiatus announcement

So my computer’s been dying, slowly, for a while now. Little bits of damage accumulating, tasks taking slightly longer to complete.

On Saturday morning it was slow to boot up. On Saturday during the day I scheduled two kotowaza and one yojijukugo to auto-post. On Saturday evening I researched replacement laptops and ordered one on Amazon.

On Sunday morning, the computer tried and failed to boot up. I was able to use my wife’s to look up the error message – hard drive failure. So now the machine is in a computer repair shop… not for repair, but for data retrieval. It’s currently unknown whether any can be gotten out, and if so, how much… at least for the amount of money I’m able to pay.

Obviously I still have internet access: on my wife’s device, on campus, in the apartment office. I should be operating normally again before I need to worry about posting more Japanese-study posts. (My schoolwork is a separate matter… wish me luck!) But I will have to skip this week’s Magic Monday. I’ll try to make it up to you somehow, when things are running smoothly again.

Anyway, thanks for reading! And remember: back up your data early and often.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
