:30 Librarian: Tablet DOA
This is one hilarious post about someone’s tablet pc that just stopped working properly – the claim is that the tablet pc is buggy. Read a little further down, though, and we learn that the tablet pc was dropped and it bounced nicely – hmm…wonder if that had anything to do with it.
For those of you interested in my tablet PC doings, I thought I would share the news that for the moment it is DOA. It will start booting into Windows and then will go no further. I'm turning it in to for a visit to the Tablet Witch Doctor and hopefully it will come back good as new.
Fortunately, my counterpart in charge of this project warned me that these things were buggy, so I set GoBinder to do a daily backup onto the included 1GB secure digital card and saved everything else to our network drive. I won't lose anything except my preferences in FireFox, thank goodness.
I did drop the tablet the other day; it bounced nicely. I don't know if this is related or not, but it seems like the problems would have showed up sooner if they were actually caused by the incident. We'll see.
