equipment malfunction

damn. my laptop will no longer properly boot and i suspect a hardware issue. the hard drive and fan power on but the screen remains blank without so much as a flicker. unfortunately, the lack of a laptop will significantly restrict my ability to post pictures and in depth blog entries here at globalrecon.org. [sigh]. the computer is still under warranty, so i'm going to contact the vendor and will plan to ship it back to them if i'm unable to fix the problem. blick.

Truly sorry to hear this news for you as well as all of your loyal readers. Let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do to help out to get you up and running.

thanks nd. it is really a shame. it pretty much prevents me from efficiently posting any more galleries. i used photoshop on the laptop to automatically resize all the high resolution pics for the web; without it i'm limited by what i can find in the net cafes and i'll be paying for the duration of the processing. i've already exchanged some emails with the computer vendor. they suspect a bad memory module, so i'm going to scour mumbai this morning to see if i can find a replacement. barring that i'll be forced to ship it to california and hope they can diagnose and fix the problem. then of course we'll still have the issue of how to get the computer back to me, although i might be able to give them a shipping address in delhi (where i plan to be in a little over a month). the adventure continues.
