My laptop died today. She had been ill for sometime but this morning at 11:38 she passed peacefully away. She was four and a half years old (which is 127 in laptop years).

She was Windows Vista and we didn’t always get along, sometimes she infuriated me. She could be a bit slow and wasn’t always very bright but I loved her. All my friends lived inside her. The woman I love lived inside her.

She had a wonderfully non-judgemental character. There were images and videos on her hard drive that would make a porn star blush, but she never uttered a word.

She will be dearly missed. Well, until I get a new one tomorrow.

she wasn't really an apple, i just put a sticker on her so i could look like a real dick

  1. Ashes to ashes
    Dust to dust
    Plastic to plastic
    To him she belonged
    An apple she longed
    Stuck it on her
    Made her loud
    And proud
    RIP babe

  4. Oh nooo 😦 Poop.

    Mine is almost 5 and with Vista as well and I swear, often very close of flying out the window – just so stubbornly slow sometimes.

    Several times close to dying but until now me and my magic geek fingers have been able to bring it back. But one of these days…

  5. This is sad!!! As an owner of both windows and mac, I fear this from both of my babies!

    … Save the porn?

    • porn is fleeting like clouds on a windy night or a dream or passing glance between strangers on the subway or a wondrous piece of graffiti art – it cannot be held onto, we must not try

  6. I had to share this on my facebook for all my computer geek friends. I did warn them to have tissues near by for tears may roll from their eyes….

    My son Mathew would have wanted to help you bring her back to life…only he may have blamed the “Apple Sticker” as the cause of her

    • she was resuscitated once or twice but to no avail, she just kept slipping away again.
      i fear that it was less likely the apple sticker that killed her and more likely the over-exposure to poorly produced pornography
