okay, you wouldn't believe it but i was checking my email at a cafe and went to restart my laptop and....nothing. Panic sets in. I try again, nothing. Though my work is backed up, I've just lost my lifeline to the world, not to mention all my email and post process tools.
I'm like...shit, I'm in India for god's sake and my laptop goes...
Long story short, after some intense research I found the guys down at RSG Infotech, south Bombay. They were great, they replaced my logic board, cleaned my computer and were super friendly. That's me and them in the photo, with my fixed notebook.
big thanks to them and an even bigger thanks to me for not cheaping out on buying Apple Care. I now have 50,000 extra rupees to spend on Aloo Gobi and Kingfisher.
ok, so now that i'm back in business, keep a lookout for regular photo posts!
