YeeGads! Computers are a pain in the ass. My most recent one in particular. They crash when I least expect it, and (unfortunately for me) I lack the comprehensive skillage to repair or remove the good info from it. So for a week I have been computer-less. Not so bad, you’re thinking, only 7 days. Except that I found in those 7 days that I have come to rely on the web far more than I care to admit. This is my reference book. My easy communication with those I don’t see often. My time killer. And just lately, my place to rant about the raving bullshit at work. I, however, am not nearly as dependent as my d/h. I’ve seen starved dogs with more civilised behavior. He may as well have been pacing for a week. (Possibly an exaggeration, but not by much ) So, thanks to the best friend in the universe (aren’t you all jealous?) I am returned to the cyberworld. So here are my words of wisdom for the day: Back up your hard drive, cause all that crap goes away sometime; always burn your pictures to cd, just in case the file isn’t retrievable; defrag and scan-disk often; and last but most important– get a Mac. They don’t write viruses for them, did you know? (Is this true? I don’t know, but it sure sounds good…) Peace and Chucks y’all….
