Sad times. :( My beloved tablet, my first, my always, my everything- passed on just now when I was forced to bash it violently against my desk. Just once, though! Quick and painless, while I told it about the rabbits. Otherwise I know I'd keep drawing* out the inevitable. We'd been playing this fun game lately where it would hide from the computer while I was drawing something important, and I'd unplug it and plug it back in until I'd almost be in tears from frustration. Then it would pop back up, as if to say "surprise!" :D But when it got caught in an unbreakable USB recognition loop, I knew it was time to say goodbye.
The good news is that within minutes, I had already whipped out my credit card and ordered a new one. I know it can't replace my first tablet, but I bet we'll have fun together! And who knows... Perhaps in time, it will come to be just as special to me.
