Just sayin ...

My computer blew up last week.  I’m dealing with it in a manly way. = cursing, diatribes and trying to ressurect from the basement any one of four computers consigned to the dust pile.   I have a new one coming Jan 2.

Oh.  Merry fkn Christmas.  Oh, I just fell on my ass.  So there’s that.  Thank god for trump. Oh, I hate using iPad for anything important.

I've come to the conclusion that computers are a lot like colonoscopies. It's a good idea to get another one every five years.

Well, I just had my desktop 2008 iMac refurbished (new hard drive and a couple of other things my computer guru recommended and installed for me) and it's running like a well-oiled machine. In addition I did away with my old laptop (a Dell that was running fine but was obsolete re OS and virus protection and non-upgradeable) and bought a nice used Macbook Pro and had it set up to be almost a duplicate of my desktop computer, everything in the same place. Life is good, at least computer-wise. And both my vehicles (one for work and one for play) are nosing up on 200k and still humming. At my last checkup the doc said "Death is probably not imminent", which is about all I hope for, health-wise. Now if only I could have my 12 yr. old dog cloned...

JLW III 0f curse I remember you ... it's just that I reached a point where I felt I was prevailing upon you too much and guilt set in .... You are a good man ,,, so how's the car and new house thing going.

By the bye, for any of you who served in Vietnam, JLW knows stuff that canl save/make you a lot of $$$$

Also I have appropriated MoSup's computer with the promise I won't change (screw up) anything and I am learning how to navigate.

I've had to give up on lap tops. If I get shaky and spill coffee or puke on a key board it is not to expensive a fix. You yuck on a lap top an they ask for more money than the lap top is worth for a fix. Excuse me I need to take my OTC pills, I going for the most expensive urine I can generate.

For just how many of us is puking on a keyboard a big time problem? Could it be a lifestyle problem?

It is agonizing without you...IJS

Happy New Year, everyone!

Raja, here's hoping you have a wonderful New Year, where the New Year Bunny brings you a magnificent new computer! Without any internal fireworks!

(Of course New Year's has bunnies. I've seen them! Sometimes they're pink.)

There is a real bad flu going around, coughing, wheezing, puking, an wet farts can be symptoms. Bar your doors and don't let small relatives near you unless you microwave them first.
