All those errands had to get done….no matter what, and in the middle of them all G found me a computer…last year’s computer, and a floor model to boot. Everyone wants tablets, and no one wants desktops. This HP demo has all the bells and whistles with an appallingly large hard drive, (HD), at just over 300 bucks. No one wants Windows 7 either much less how will I ever fill up that gazillion bit hard drive. I just want reliability. Yes, I can see the oxymoron in that.
The backup XP computer doesn’t want to start now. I don’t blame it, but it has to. The Vista/7 computer continues to eat things as I try to save its contents. Making computer decisions yesterday accompanied by nausea wasn’t my first choice. If I didn’t save it, oh well.
Today is email. If you don’t hear from me and don’t read my blog…which I encourage you to do to keep up with me, this means your email address vanished into limbo. I’ve lost you, not consciously, mind you. Please send me a note and I will keep your address in the cloud. Doesn’t that sound pretentious.
I’m an email saver. This hoarding, this folder by folder saving thing has come back to haunt me. Today I get to go through it all preparatory for wiping the Vista/7 computer bare. Probably sooner rather than later it will become the new backup…especially if I cannot get the old one going.
Our friend Bonnie Rose just got a new computer too. Boy do I sympathize.
- Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts and donating where it will count.
- Himself: Got everything done with a smile.
- Herself: Mildly ill and with hives. Feel pretty good this morning.
- Reading: All the books I mentioned before plus a book of Reeve Lindbergh’s essays.
- Balance: Not moving. Holding still is a very good things.
