It didn’t quite go smooth, but I have my laptop intact and almost fully functional again!
The crisis with my gadgets was going on for a long while, and for the last weeks it was pretty severe, but for now it’s averted at long last. New phone, patched up laptop, internet didn’t fail me for a while.
Which means that I don’t quite have a convenient excuse for doing nothing again. I might always be too late, but there are things I must finish despite not meeting any reasonable deadlines.
