We ordered a new laptop yesterday; it’ll take up to 3 days for them to deliver it so maybe I’ll get it tomorrow but more likely after the weekend.

Looks like my Bluray-rom is failing ๐Ÿ™ It doesn’t read most CD/DVD/Bluray discs anymore, and the ones that it does read, it takes a longer than usually and with noise ๐Ÿ™ I dug up my old X-Box360 HD DVD player from storage, which thankfully still works okay so at least I’m not shit out of […]
