One of the disadvantages of working from home is the fact that I alone are responsible for whatever equipment I use for work. It has been a week now since my laptop died on me four times a day. Despite my getting a dedicated small fan for it to quit overheating on me. This was very inconvenient because I lost a huge portion of my unsaved work when it happened the first time.
I can say that it’s working almost like industrial computers do as it goes on and on for days on end. We currently have no budget to get a replacement for this three year old, overused laptop nor can I afford to have it repaired for a week. That’s what the service center would usually give us. I cannot yet use the netbook, even temporarily. The last time I did, my scoliosis almost got me killed (of so much pain). I have prayed about this and the Lord heeded. Even as Philippians 4:6 says, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” I am just grateful enough that now my laptop is back to life. Although I did have to work on a job from scratch. One of the little things that made me smile today. 🙂
