It will soon be time for a sad parting. One of my very nearest and dearest is struggling through the dying days, and it will fall to me, I fear, to end the misery, and deliver the final quietus. I don’t want to, but sometimes it is better to be cruel in the pursuit of kindness, than allow a suffering to continue.
So, at the start of next month, I shall purchase a new computer, and consign the current one to… er… wherever obsolete personal computers go when they die. I imagine a place of ghettos, where Macs refuse to talk to PCs, and PCs in turn turn Macs away at the doors of all the best nightspots. Just because they more or less get on these days, we must not forget or forgive the recent segregations that divided us.
As for the next computer – probably a laptop. My funds are limited, so I’m likely looking at a stop-gap measure while I make my way towards something that will keep me going another four years or so. We shall see.
So, farewell computer. Enjoy these final weeks, for soon they will be at an end…
