Woman Sitting Beside Table with Laptop Photographic Print
I regret to inform you that my laptop (Orac O'Dell) and I have decided to part ways. Sadly we could no longer work together in a manner that was neither tolerable nor productive for either of us. I will admit that my inflexibility regarding powering up on command had much to do with the demise of this relationship, and I am sincerely sorry that a workable agreement could not be forged.
I cannot regret the time we spent together, nor deny the beautiful work we accomplished. I hope you will join me in wishing Orac good luck as he searches for work in the computer parts industry. Perhaps we will see him playing a role in a sequel to 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer: (And Other Discarded Electronics) or possibly parts of him ensconced in gold and dangling from a socialite's ears.
Good-bye Orac, and Good Luck
