I put my car and laptop outside yesterday to gather some GPS drift/error data. It wasn’t raining, but I thought I better cover things up just in case. Then I watched some Big Bang Theory and had a nap [don't judge me - I'm on vacation!]. Anyway, I woke up and it was pouring rain and my laptop and car were getting soaked. Of course, the things I used to cover things up were completely inadequate and blew off. I literally turned it upside down and water poured out.
Usually, the stories of me doing stupid stuff end happily [see this link - similar project, similar occurrence, but with beer], but not this time. It has been 24 hrs and my laptop is still not turning on. I’m hoping that eventually it will dry out and will be ok.
The only bright side here is that my laptop, which I have never liked, is getting old and I figure that subconsciously I wanted it to die.
