This is beyond a joke

Three months ago my computer got rewhatsited, at great expense.

Two months ago I started getting funny error messages on my hard disk.

One and a half months ago the computer went into get fixed, and stayed there for about four days being tested, and they couldn't find anything wrong with it.

Half a month ago it started suddenly restarting while I was working at it. Not a shut-down and restart, more like a power-cut and restart.

Last week I booked it in to be fixed, again, today.

This evening I picked it up after having spent a day in the shop. They hadn't got around to it yet.

I'm not going to be able to take it in again until Tuesday (I won't be able to pick it up at 5pm tomorrow or Friday due to functions, and it's a long weekend so nowhere is open on Monday).

Of course, it still takes me half an hour to get the damn thing wired up again every time I get it home from having been in to be fixed (there's an appalling spaghetti of wires connecting it with all the bits and pieces that make it run).

... I haven't definitely decided I'm going to do nanowrimo this year (although it's looking like I might), but if I miss out on it this year because of more serious computer failures I'm going to be spectacularly pissed off about it all.
