Have you ever heard that or something similar?
Well I did Saturday afternoon. I had just gotten back from running a errand and my son said those words to me as I walked in from the garage. Less that 10 minutes later, my computer was DEAD. HDD still spins up, but no video out to the monitor, and as far as I can tell, nothing else.
So, went and got myself a new e-machine today at BestBuy for $230. Just the tower, I have everything else.
This is just a quick post to let everyone know that I am still around, but I will be a little busy for the next couple of days trying to set this new machine up and trying to recover as much data as possible from the old computer's hard drive. Email address book, bookmarks for Firefox and such. And any pictures I had not yet burned to my external hard drive.
A speeding ticket on my Birthday, first in 20 plus years, then the computer dies...what next. I have surgery on my right knee Thursday, I wonder what might go wrong with that?
November is not shaping up well!
