In2-MeC

I will not be able to write for In2-MeC for the next several days. Before I leave Europe I need to back up my computer data, so that all the files, audio and video material on my hard drives will be safely stored while I am away. I was hoping to be able to use Vidyagati's Compaq notebook. You'll recall that when my Fujitsu-Siemens was fried by lightning last July, I replaced it with Vidyagati's Dell Latitude, while he received a brand new Compaq from Omkaranath.

Unfortunately his Compaq seems to be a lemon. Yesterday it went into service because the fan does not cool the computer enough; as a result it keeps freezing up. This will be the second time it's been into service since Vidyagati got it. At least the machine is on warranty; and if it must go into service 3 times he has the right to get his money back.
So: if you are in the market for a new computer, from this experience I would advise you--don't buy a Compaq.

So this backup work I must do myself with the Dell and a big external hard drive with 2 120 Gigabyte hard disks. My computer has been running steadily since yesterday morning, copying, copying, copying...

I want to finish this before I leave by bus for Amsterdam on 20th October evening.

It seems I will stay in Groningen with Dharmaksetra and Pitambara until Govardhana Puja day, 26 October.

I believe on the 29th I fly from Amsterdam to Auckland, New Zealand.

I will be writing here again as soon as the backup work is completed. Probably you'll see nothing here until the weekend is over.
