I picked my laptop up today, with it's new hard drive, and was dreading having to reinstall everything. Well, not dreading as such, more wishing that I could use the time for something else. But I needn't have worried, as the optical drive has now failed too so I can't install anything at all. I did manage to install Office, but when I tried to insert my Photoshop CD the drive wouldn't let me. From what I can work out there's a pin that engages after a CD is inserted that's now stuck. So, that's another day that I'll be wasting next week taking it back for repair.

Technology is a marvellous thing – when it works. When it doesn't it's a complete and utter pain.

As for this shot: again, it won't appeal to all of you, but there's something about it's simplicity that appeals to me.
