Video Tasting MIA

Broken  LaptopI recorded a video tasting tonight, but I’m having technical difficulties getting it online. My HP Laptop is dead. Yesterday it started freaking out the display. I thought it was overheating, and I managed it for most of the day with “Sleep” mode. But then a few hours ago it ran for just a few minutes and shut down while not that hot, and now it won’t start at all. Good thing my wife has a much more reliable HP Laptop so I could at least get on and make this post. (By the way, that’s not my laptop, mine is broken in a much less visibly apparent way.)

I just spent a half hour on the phone with a dude in India (I think it is India…he sounded the part and he said it was 10AM there) and I think I am a few minutes away from a RMA and sending my laptop out for God-knows-how-long to get fixed. At least it is under warranty. Another 21 days and I’d be on the hook for the cost of fixing this defect.

But all the raw video is on my laptop, so I won’t be able to complete editing, publishing, and posting until I get my laptop back. As a matter of fact, I’m pretty much screwed until I get my laptop back. Sure, I can do Hotmail and Google and Yahoo, but the Brainard Brewing email might be hard to check. And with no favorites or other links or documents, it will be hard to be productive. I’ll be forced to read the dozens of books I have waiting for me. Hmm…this might not be so bad.

Man, what’s up? Everything is all messed up lately. Hopefully this will pass VERY soon, and I can get back on track.

The tasting was good, too. Concise beer info, but lots of Iris input.
