Looks like my trusty old laptop has had it. It’s been balky for a few days, but now it doesn’t even run in safe mode. I’ve been wasting too much time with it these past two days. Time to have someone who knows what they’re doing look at it.

In the meantime, I have enough workarounds that I can still do almost everything I could with the laptop. Look for the next post soon. Right after I take a nap.
