My old computer broke down, leaving me with no place to study my C code, my assignments in PDF, and my ebooks. Good thing all my assignments were already finished, or I am toast.
That PC served me well for 7 years. Good thing I had recently upgraded - I brought this old PC with me to my apartment in Bacolod.
The coming second semester would be a different thing altogether. If it would be as computationally-intensive as the coursework during this semester, I would be forced to find a replacement.
All the more reason for me to work harder right now.
