Old Laptop will not give up files to New Laptop. Old Laptop thinks New Laptop is an uppity little whippersnapper. New Laptop thinks Old Laptop is just a corrupt old bastard, and won't listen to a thing he says.
Old Laptop is also balking at interacting with Middleaged External Drive. They used to hang out, but Middleaged External Drive doesn't call or write anymore, and so Old Laptop is being passive-aggressive.
So help me, if I have to manually jump all my shit out of Old Laptop on a flash drive..... I will just snap.
