So, why no updates ?
Well, 3 weeks ago my laptop died. Video card because it was still working but I had no screen. Short story is :
Went to the shop, they said <tomorrow>, I came back and they told me <cannot repair, dont have VGA card>... ok and yeah they didnt spoke much english, so I went to others places, who doesnt speak english for most of them and they told me either cannot repair or I would have to wait 3-5 days, I was like wtf, no way, too long... and I didnt understood why.
Found a guy on internet with my phone, he speak english and he explained me why : My laptop is sorta uncommon, so harder to get a spare part, so take more time. He took my laptop, found out the problem was the video card (but he had to check it by himself to make sure that was the right problem), then he had to check for part, call me and then order it.
Asked for rush shipping so faster, then he got it, he changed it ... 10 days ago or so but since then, he keep saying to me, the computer doesnt work proprely and he would need fews days to fix it..
2 days ago received a message telling me he put an other enginner on it , to me look like either big problem or he doesnt know how to solve it..
So its like the never ending story, I didnt expected it to take so long to get it fixed. I was thinking buying a new laptop would have been better and +EV in time-management, but since I always tought the laptop was almost ready, I didnt bought one... until yesterday.
So in short, I got my laptop repaired instead of buying a new one, but taking so long im not putting any poker hands and would have been massively +EV to buy a new one 2-3 weeks ago and make some $ @ poker to pay for it... but since im pissed off big time about it and I want to work... yesterday I bought a new laptop and its already set-up so im gonna play today.
Now im waiting to the punch in the nutz and having a phone call today telling me my laptop is fixed, just for fun.. The bets are open for when Its gonna be fixed, and also I think we can put some side-bet about it being un-fixable...
So I havent been playing since 3 weeks, used my phone for Skype and email... oh and obv the phone went busto 1x and almost a 2nd time..
Well, at least I went out a lot and drank a lot ! Meet some peoples I already knew and others poker players as well, having wonderfull time.
Bad beat too : I spent the x-mas eve @ in bed because of food poisoning , well 1st time in Thailand and in my live, not a bad average...
