It looks like my forced hiatus concerning blogging is just about over……just about. First, my video camera was stolen…well, since it happened at a public school, let’s just say it’s missing ….. for about 2 or 3 months now. Then, my computer crashed or as the computer repairman said, “somehow your computer has become corrupt.” What does that mean!?!My computer evolved into a politician? The hard drive accepted a bribe? The mouse & keypad snitched on the CPU!?! CORRUPT? Can you UN-corrupt it? "Sure…… for a price!!" Well, about $200 later, the computer is back, up and running. Thank goodness, a week before the crash, I decided to back up my files. If I hadn’t done that I really would be hurting. During my computer’s absence, I found out something about myself. I’m hooked, strung out, addicted, got a jones, monkey on my back, straight up junkie, to and for my computer. I was having computer withdrawal……sweating n’ shaking. Every morning, after awakening but before the brain was engaged, I’d try to turn on the computer……till I realized there WAS no computer. Then all day, I’d keep looking at the vacant space under the desk hoping the ‘puter would magically materialize. I couldn’t wait to get to the radio station just so I could turn on a computer. If the computer was already on……I’d turn it off, then turn it back on. While mine was in the hospital (repair shop), I’d visit it every day, even bringing it little virtual flowers and “get well soon" cards. I had it bad. I asked the doctor (repairman) how long before it would be released from the hospital (shop). His answer, “well, we don’t know….we’ll just have to wait and see. You might want to make arrangements.” ARRANGEMENTS?!? "Yeah, arrange to buy another computer." It was touch and go there for a while but after the doctor (repairman) performed surgery (wiped the hard drive, reinstalled windows, and did a few other things), it was good as new!! Now all I have to do is re-install the programs I had on it originally….if I can find all of them. Anybody got an word program for windows 3.0?
