So yes, after several years of tactically applied blunt force trauma, spilled tea (with coconut milk and honey no less), and general wear and tear my faithful Gabriel laptop gave up the ghost. It helped that I tried to fix it myself. So now I am typing away on a brand new laptop. Again it is a small and useful little box with nor frills or fancy stuff. We will see how long Aesop here lasts.
