So the laptop manufacturer (coughcough*Hewlett-Packard*cough) have decided that my warranty will NOT cover my laptop dying, seeing as it expired on the 25th Feb. Never mind that I had actually called them with the problem in the beginning of Feb, and they did so much runaround and faxing back and forth of papers that it took that long! I am kind of mad. It's ok as I had got the extended warranty, but I have to chase up repairs with the company who does after manufacturer-warranty support.
Ho hum. Guess it will give me something to do on those on-call days. I also need to get tax stuff sorted out. Luckily, one has until June 30th to lodge the 07-08 tax return to get the $900 from the government. Woo hoo! Straight into the travel fund with that one!
In the mean time, I am borrowing flatmates' computer to make posts, check emails and so forth. The one inconvenient aspect is, it does not have the company roster software on it, so I cannot check my roster from home, or more importantly, the crew list if I get called out for a trip. Oh well. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
