Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian writes:

If there's one thing I've learned over the last few years, it's that the tropics are rough on all forms of electronics equipment. The damp, the heat, the brown-outs, even the insects – there's a form of tiny ant that seems drawn to circuitry!

So I wasn't too surprised when the laptop of Personal logo Editor Dianna The Editor of TMP died. It served for several years, but had been in 'bad health' for several months. We had a discussion about replacing it, and Personal logo Editor Dianna The Editor of TMP opted to go for a desktop computer this time.
