I've had this laptop since 2009. It was a gift that was given to me by my wife and mother and I've been using pretty consistently since than.
All my personal projects.
Every experiment and pretty much most of my writing has happened on this laptop and a lot of my identity revolves around how I use this.
But the sad reality is that time is marching on without us.
Applications both commercial and open source are no longer supported.
If that wasn't enough, I've had the following problems.
- The speakers have been blown out
- Excesive heating when plugged in
- The trackpad is starting to not work
Still, I'm not going to give up on my laptop. I want to continue using it until we are parted.
So in that spirit, I'm going to use my laptop to create as much stuff as i caan before the end of the year.
