Warning to Readers

It took seven attempts to get this computer to come up this morning, and another nine to get it up again when it crashed just now. In my experience, this is a sign that this lovely machine will soon die and turn itself into a doorstop. When it does, I will be missing, probably, for several months, while I organize a replacement.

Not only do I converse here, get my news here, learn what I'm supposed to pray for here, and play games here, but I also buy my groceries with this machine. [Can't trust cabbies to carry groceries to the door even after they are generously bribed, and the van service is limited to 2 bags/40 lbs which isn't much groceries, so I let Peapod deliver my basic monthly groceries.......] So when it finally gives up the ghost, things are going to get a bit rough around here. So, if you all can keep me and my relations with this machine in your prayers.........

Prayers, Karen, for your computer and for you.

Having just been through a rather similar scenario, Karen, my heart goes out to you. I'll continue to pray till you post the good news here that either your old machine has recovered its youth and strength, or that you have a replacement...

It might just be the power supply, or something similarly cheap. *hope, hope*

I think that if you had somebody at church put out a call for computer help, you'd probably get more help than you need. Most techie people love nothing better than to fix stuff, or give other people their second-best equipment that they've been saving for a rainy day.
