So the bad news is someone spilled liquid in my laptop - not me but no one in the house is owning up, of course. it's going to cost $220 excess on insurance on our Flexirent plan in order to get another one. Could be worse, I know.
I lost everything - my fic library, art, caps, my TS novella (100 pages long) that I forgot to back up the night before the laptop died. Stupid, stupid.
