electric acrid smell

It's good to be back online. My computer literally blew itself up this week, with a big bang and an electric acrid smell that reminded me it's still a nuts and bolts machine and not just a ones and zeroes box.

The resulting 3 days of offline made me think what an incredibly complex and multifunctional McLuhanesque extension of me the computer has become - in other words, how deprived (almost typed 'depraved' there) one feels without it.

Like, things you can't do without a computer:

  • emailing
  • surfing
  • googling
  • blogging
  • skyping
  • gaming
  • burning
  • printing
  • scanning
  • photoshopping
  • downloading
