USING MY WIFE'S COMPUTER IS DRIVING ME BANANAS.
It's perfect for surfing the web and buying stuff off Amazon, but not work, not work. The languid pace at which it pinwheels nearly caused me to pop a gasket. And I'm still three or four days away from when I'll get my own computer back. Gah.
Was talking to my father-in-law about this. He's a photographer and was telling me that he has three of every camera he owns. The reason being is that he always takes two of the exact same cameras to shoots — if one is in repairs, he'll still have two of the same camera he can take.
He pointed out that it was probably a waste of money, but always did insure that his work flow was never disturbed. "You should buy three MacBook Pros," he joked. If only!
