A dramatic title, I know, but when your computer dies, it is really dramatic. Even if you have the important stuff (writing) backed up, losing your computer means losing your ability to work effectively. This time around, when we pulled the hard drive, it looked like it had started melting. Definitely dead.
On the up side, if your computer dies right before bonus time when several wondrous new games are lurking on the horizon…
…it can be a blessing in disguise.
Criteria for a new computer for me is simple.
- It has to be quiet, so it doesn’t drive me bonkers when I’m writing.
- It has to be able to run upcoming games with ease.
- It has to do everything without overheating.
Now for a little amateur video.
There will be many books written and edited using this computer, which is its primary purpose, but there will also be epic gaming.
The best part is, now that I have a working computer again, I can get back to editing the next book.
