About 10 years ago, the Air Force retired the last of its F-111 Fighters. We had the pleasure of watching an interview with one of the crew chiefs of the F-111s at the time. He provided the header quote to describe how he felt about losing the plane he'd worked on for 11 years.
I thought the quote apt for how I felt without my laptop. Fortunately, I got my computer back yesterday, all new and fixed.
I must say, I think I may just keep taking notes by hand. I seem to pay slightly more attention when I'm handwriting vice typing. It's too easy to go into gist mode and simply write down what goes into my ears and not think about what I'm doing. Perhaps it will serve me better in the long run, who knows?
It's good to be back to normal.
