busted!

My 2017 EliteBook HP laptop broke in the most bizarre fashion, in that the battery started inflating to the point of pushing the back cover (and stopped functioning as well). It happened at the worst moment, of course, as I was boarding a train to Brittany for family matters, whose power plug kept cutting every five minutes. I did not realise the entire issue with the battery until I reached my final destination and rushed to a computer repair shop, which did not want to do anything on the spot (of course!) but pointed out to me the problem with the back cover.  Which I removed a few minutes later in a lawnmower repair shop, held by a dear cousin of mine. Now, the laptop is still working, but waiting for a new battery I ordered as soon as I saw the state of the old one..!

This (early) summer, a conference on missing data will be organised in Rennes, Brittany, with the support of the French Statistical Society [SFDS]. (Check the website if interested, Rennes is a mere two hours from Paris by fast train.)
