MY LAPTOP BIT THE DUST ON FRIDAY
So you are wondering just how I got the computer out to my car and to the fix-it-shop? Well I have a small case on wheels with an extending handle just like on suitcases. I slid the laptop into the case and then pulled it up 5 steps and out to the car. So far so good and with no real lifting. When I got to the car I put my left foot out (there's an old song in there somewhere lol) and under the case and using my leg muscles 'lifted' the entire case onto the floor of the back seat with a bit of directional movement using the handle. When I got to the shop I then proceeded to put my right foot out (here we go again) and did it in reverse doing no harm to my back.
This desktop computer I'm using in my office is in the same precarious situation and it's even older. I haven't turned it off for ages as it does funny things when I try to start it up and does not like to be awakened out of hibernation or standby!
I will get someone take it in for me because I certainly can't song and dance my way out of carrying this one. I hope to get a few more miles out of it anyway.
