My PC has been quite ill over the last number of years. I’m no tech person, but I was determined not to let the computer beat me. I have opened up the bowels of the hard-drive thingy and reset the memory sticks, stared at the blue screen of death more times than I care to imagine, googled the problem, reset the BIOS thingy, hoovered the dust from the air vent thingy and kept this baby sort of working. I even varnished the floor in the room two years ago and varnished around the hard drive thingy. I was afraid to move it.
Windows XP died a while ago and I didn’t upgrade. Why would I with a baby this sick? Well now Chrome keeps crashing on me just when I am in the middle of an earth-shattering revelation. Today, I think the fan thingy died. I kept the start button pressed for five minutes whilst pumping oxygen from my jaded lungs into the air vent thingy.
Lo and behold, I got the old gal up and working again but you know when it’s time to call a halt. Today, I had to go out and replace my PC. I decided to go for a laptop. It is a tiny, little thingy and my fingers are too biggy. I am a long fingered vulgarian, I am afraid. It will take me all day to write a post on that tiny keyboard. I can get over that, but I will lose access to my beloved Photoshop and Illustrator – all of which were purchased legally!?!
So while I type this post on the old gal, she could expire any minute now.
I have the new thingy now. We’ll see how I get on.
