I broke down and bought a new laptop computer.
I had to. Kagome was never intended to be my primary use machine, I was expecting to have another laptop shortly after I got back from Florida in 2013. Since then, I have returned to Florida, and I'm starting to wonder how much she has left in her. The case is starting to crack, the fan is getting noisy, I can't work on her for fear that she'll die and any work I haven't backed up will be lost. (When you write stream of consciousness, that becomes a major major fear.) Plus the 9GB of hard drive space is pretty much full, with me constantly having to delete files to do things like update. Plus, I admit, I did not like typing on her 11" screen, I need something a bit bigger at a more comfortable angle. My writing has stalled because I can't stand the substandard size keyboard and other things.
So I now have a new machine, charging up as we speak. Before long, I will wipe Windoze 10 off of her and install Ubuntu. While waiting to do that, I need to name her. As she is about getting shit done, that informs my choices.
The choices so far:
Lyta (or Makoto, either or)
Martha (the only companion of the modern era I would put along the greats like Sarah Jane and Ace)
That's a start, I am open to suggestions.
