Yes, my laptop went sputch.
It's back running for now, with a priviso from the techs that "lets see if this happens again," basically. They're going to call back tomorrow after I run some tests and see how well this thing works out over the next few days, and if their fix holds or if they need a new fix.
In the mean time, my yarn came for the ESK Sock-Along. The poor postman actually came to the door while I was on the phone with the laptop tech, so I feel rather bad for him.

I've done a lot of knitting with having a non-functioning laptop, but not actually a lot to show for it, since my primary knitting has been on the Evening Star Cowl KAL, which while pretty, doesn't knit up very fast at all.
