Last evening, about a quarter after six, I was having a very frustrating time at the work shop. things just not working. Unproductive time on a set-price job = lost $ for company. Not good.
Then My Lovely wife, called me. "Honey," she opened, "Did you get upset with the computer this morning?" Um, what do you mean?" "I - just wondered if it really pissed you off or something?" "Um, what DO you NEED, hun? what's up?" More terse than I intended, already having a bad Day, here..... "Well, Did you maybe push buttons a little hard? It's REALLY DEAD..."
I Swear. I JUST turned it off, which I relayed.
bottom line - It's says it requires re-formatting the hard drive(which may or may not work-it already had bad sectors).
Hundreds of photos will be lost. Yes I know what back ups are. the last time I tried to copy to disc, it wasn't going for it. And don't even get me started on recording music to c.d.s.
THIS - IS NOT GOOD.
We are not in a position to just go out and replace it.
Thank God, biz files are all on memory stick.
Right now I'm writing this at my Aunt's house on her computer.
I sort of knew how much the computer had become an integral part of our lives.
But, NO, I didn't really.....
Feeling Very vulnerable here.
That's just absurd. I went years with no t.v. NO problem. ok, need the cell phone for biz, understandable. but the Computer!?!
OH well, welcome to life in the twenty-first Century, in this "the Best of All Possible worlds"(Voltaire-CANDIDE)
