Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| What Happens to Your Laptop When You Stand Up?
May 03, 2021
Answer: It goes away.
I decided to add more memory to my 2.5 year old laptop computer. It was a
"double or nothing" move to boost it up to a respectible amount of memory.
The coin flip didn't come up "double." Right now I'm still trying to
figure out what's wrong, as absolutely nothing happens when I push
the power button. I'm hoping it's a battery or power issue rather than a
motherboard one. We'll see. Fortunately, my old laptop still works fine
(after like ten years!) so I can do the essential things. No time for
photoshop, this was drawn in pencil and then inked with my plain old
everyday G-2 gel pen. Also, note the little white circle in the center
of the LCD screen is supposed to be the white dot that old (tube) TV
screens would display when you turned them off. Full resolution picture is
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.

image, just click on the image.
