Good Morning Folks.
As you can tell nothing is right about this brief message. The font and color are wrong, the layout and graphics are not up to par and its not your regular issue of rhetoric and wit. That is because last Thursday morning I suffer a catastrophic failure of the CPU and Motherboard which turned my Lap Top into an expensive snack tray. Regardless of Impish’s faith in my skills even I cannot fix that, well at least not on a budget that makes any sort of financially responsible sense for a 4 year old machine.
Now this didn’t come as a total surprise I had stated in a plea for any help you folks could render by belief that it was on its way out back around Halloween. The fact I managed to nurse it along well over 60 days is in itself miraculous but I had no choice. I cannot afford another until at the earliest the end of February.
For the mean time I have managed to coerce a fussy power supply into functioning in a more or less stable manner so that I can use Molly’s old (circa 2006) lap top since her schooling required us to buy her a new one recently.
The problem is most of the software I was using to create the blog posts doesn’t want to work on this older machine, I’m having to find workarounds, install them, and then figure them out. The hard drive on my lap top is a technological generation ahead of my drive hacking set up which I didn’t know until Saturday when I removed it from the dead lap top to transfer all the work I had done last week for the blog over to this machine (Sunday is my regular backup day). I ordered one immediately but it will not be here until sometime late today. Realistically we’re looking at at least the weekend before I get everything I need to transferred over and am at least semi capable of resuming publishing weekly and they still will not be up to par for a while until I can get a newer machine.
If I’m not up and running by next week I’ll check in and give you an update. Until then you’re stuck
laughing at with Impish.
