Basic equipment – normally, running in the background

The power supply to the laptop started sizzling and smoking in the middle of the Session meeting tonight.

It was one of those horrifying situations the full horror of which only dawned on my consciousness slowly, like a monstrous movie octopus. The deadline tomorrow. The deadline Sunday. The class on Monday. How long it took to get a compatible power supply last time. The deadlines next week.

The technology, like so much else, is the background … until it’s the foreground.
