The new computer (notebook).

You may recall about a week ago I said I purchased a new notebook (well actually my first) as my old computer was dismantled and left in Korea. So here I am following up on what I bought since quite a few of you were nice enough to give me some tips and hints on [...]

Still having some computer problems.

My computer is still playing up on me. I’m not overly sure what the problem is. As I mentioned yesterday I thought it was the hard drive, hence the reason for forking out 100,000 won to order a new, 650GB one, but I’m not 100% sure it is the drive. The computer died a lot [...]
