Spot Update

I talked to Sony last night. After getting escalated up to the highest tier on the support chain we were just about to have me send in the laptop, but he had me try a couple of more things. One of them worked to get it up.

This is not to say that the laptop is running perfectly. I can still get the complete no-start problem every now and then (and that is after just one evening's testing!) I also still get the intermittent system lock-up problem that I've had before. Which, unfortunately, means that I probably should send it in and get them to look at it while it's still under warrantee. But at least I was able to run a backup of all the stuff that my last backup missed.

I got to bed kind of late, since I was frantically running backups of everything I could possibly think of while the laptop was still up. Now I'm a zombie with a headache. I wish it were Saturday, and I could pretend that this whole "being awake" thing was just a bad dream, roll over, and go back to sleep.

More Spots

Tried turning the laptop on at lunch. No dice. Calling Sony again tonight.

This actually sets my mind more at ease. I wanted to get someone to look at it before it went out of warrantee. Last night it looked like Spot was over whatever, except for once when it wouldn't turn on, and once when it locked up hard. Having it not turn on a couple of more times gives me more ammo to go to Sony and say, no, really, fix it.

Japan, Day 6

Note: Some of these blog entries may seem time-tripping. Many of them were written on my Palm Pilot while I was in Japan. Some of them were not. Some of them were written on the Palm, then expanded greatly once I could edit them on something with a keyboard. I appologize for any time travelling confusion that may ensue.
