Yes, I have some sort of curse which breaks any technological item that comes within 20 feet of me
Problem 1: My laptop is broken (that's problem 2, bear with me) so at the moment I'm using my mini notebook thing-gummy which uses linux. I really want to go into the IRC but when I connect with mibbet it doesn't load, and I can't for the life of me work Pidgin.
Actually, just had a thought, when I opened firefox it told me nothing would i work because it was too out of date - if I upgrade firefox will that help? How do I upgrade firefox?
Summarise: How to upgrade FF, how to work Pidgin.
Problem 2: MY LAPTOP'S BROKEN
It turns on fine, and I can do anything offline fine on it, but everytime I connect to the internet it comes up with a box saying it has encountered a critical error and will be shutdown in 1 minute. It only happens when I connect to the internet. I've tried starting in windows safe mode with networking, various system restores, and deleting a ton of programs and suchlike. I've also run a few full virus scans and I'm fairly sure it's not a virus.
When Charlie was up I used his laptop to look at various computing forums and it seems to be a relatively common problem, but none of the solutions I found worked. Anyone got any ideas?
