A reason explaining why it has been so silent around this space lately is because I accidentally spilled tea. over my keyboard last week. As a result my laptop started having some odd symptoms at first, with certain keys and numbers not working. Next morning keyboard would simply not respond at all, and the following afternoon my laptop did not wake up anymore. An attempted resurrection is currently being made, and luckily most of my files are already safe. After four years of hard work, my white not so shiny anymore, MacBook is finally dead. I am currently in the process of choosing a successor, and will be posting new photos soon - I already have a few in mind.
update: it miraculously started working again, and a got a free replacement of my keyboard. not bad eh?
