Hubby asked me when I had last backed-up ... I looked on my External Hard Drive and was very red-faced to admit that it was four months ago :-(
Luckily Hubby has just treated himself to a new machine and so now I am working on his old one, with a restored system that is finally up to date after only two days of file-copying! *sigh* I've now marked my calendar and promise faithfully to do better in future.
He showed me why my old laptop was overheating ... masses of dust inside and just look at the state of the air-vent!
That should definitely not be there, no wonder the fan was having to do overtime! The only upside is that item #9 in Rinda's Summer 2013 Scavenger Hunt is "someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong" and I reckon this dusty fluff will get me started on the hunt, though I'm not sure where it should be, other than inside the bin!
