Today at work my Dell laptop suddenly shut itself off and refused to start up again. I took it out of the docking station and it was hot and smelled like smoke. I have no idea when it will be repaired, leaving me with no computer.
[Update 12/1/2004 ] The came and took it away to be repaired today. Anywhere from 3 to 5 days from when the repair people actually get it. I have my hard drive on the assumption it still works.
