confused Every now and again it will let out a little sqeak. I've no idea what it is. Please don't tell me it's dying, I can't afford to replace it.

Have you installed a mouse?

belledechocchipcookie Sun 17-Jul-11 11:59:34

Yes, I don't think it's the mouse though, he's quiet. wink

It had a thunderfly wriggling around in the screen a couple of weeks ago confused

Oh you badbad joker you!
belle - does it squeek with any sort of accent at all?

belledechocchipcookie Sun 17-Jul-11 12:04:07

grin Nope, just a high pitched squeek every now and again.

Have you oiled it properly?

<I am now at my boundaries of laptop expertise>

belledechocchipcookie Sun 17-Jul-11 12:41:31

I've not oiled it at all grin I need a new laptop, the battery's dead and the power supply keeps failing. It's cheaper to buy a new one sad

oh dear. Horrible thought. Mine is now 6 years old and it's getting a bit 'tired' too.

sad How are you Pan? I've still not managed to see an Opera here yet!

I need my laptop, I'm writing a book. I doubt I will get an advance in time to buy another one.

AwesomePan Sun 17-Jul-11 12:52:21

I'm fine thanks! I start a new post tomorrow, leading a team of whom I know exactly zero. I am intrigued, as I am told they are!

I have been following your wrting career on here btw - you have soom really good ideas!

and no opera her either. Boooo! (getting all pantomimey there!)

Oh, best of luck. Take them to the pub and get them 'merry' grin (if you can).

blush I've finished my first novel, the agent told me to sod off though as she didn't have enough time to edit it. I'm working on it now, I had changed it to make it longer as per her instructions but I wasn't happy with what I had written so I'm changing it now. I've no idea how to edit it though. I need to find a few willing people to read it I think. sad

It's boring in Derby at the moment.

Oh count me in on your potential readers? I promise to be honest and kind at the same time.
need to pop out with dd right now. Speak later?

belledechocchipcookie Sun 17-Jul-11 13:04:42

smile Oh, thank you. I'll send you a PM with my 'work' email address, the old one is over run with spam so I don't use it.

Have fun with DD smile
