New Cosmic Law Found

If a new computer becomes available to me, an older one will break within twenty-four hours.

The charger on Cortana (my monstrous Qosmio Toshiba laptop) exploded last night, and I've spent the morning installing stuff onto my recently refurbished desktop. Fortunately, there was just enough battery power left in the tosh for me to copy over the most recent versions of my work files to my iPod, and from there to my desktop, so nothing's been lost other than most of a working day, and hey, I waste that regularly on other stuff.
