Here is a great tip for all laptop users...

When someone in another room calls you never put the laptop on the floor because when you get up to see what they want you will accidentally kick the screen causing you to go to the shop and spend another 700 quid to replace the laptop that is only 9 months old. :mad:

When I say threes, that includes everything from getting a ding in your car to breaking your wife's favorite collectible.

But there is a remedy, ding your own car in an inconspicuous spot, then run in and break that ugly Hummel you always hated. Problem solved. :biggrin:

I know but I am more concerned about my audio equipment than the car. At least until I can afford the Aston Martin DBS. I have already displayed that I am a klutz. I suppose knocking over a class of water onto a toaster that shorts the house and blows up the grid is not entirely out of the question.

We're all just thankful that you didn't go into nuclear physics, explosives, germ warfare, commercial airline pilot, taxi driver.
You and ST have much in common, where accidents are looking for a place to happen.
I hear Uh.,..Ohhhh, at least three times a day, and I just go straight to the first aid kit, before I even ask if she is OK. :biggrin:

I thought I would update you all on the new laptop which was purchased to replace the one I kicked....

I spilled a glass of wine on it forcing me to go to the shop and spend another 700 quid on a laptop replacing one  that was only seven months old.

Here is some financial advice. Invest in companies that manufacture laptops...

I can't take full responsibility though. My cat jumped up on the desk and I couldn't see.

That's about $1096.00 U.S. right?
