What's Happening With Me
Events of the last few days.
Last Sunday my computer gave me its first clue that something was going wrong when it started to reset itself regularly (ie it would act as if someone had hit the reset button that computers used to have.) It would suddenly turn off and start up again. I figured it was a power-supply problem and the computer was rather old (about 4 - 4 1/2 years) so I started arranging to get another one.
I believe that it was Monday that I posted that I was experiencing problems and that it may be a while without a posting. That afternoon I had purchased a laptop that is fine, but I was not set up to get it on the net. Tuesday I completely lost my old computer just as I was transferring files to a disc. It's power supply was dead, dead . . . dead.
Wednesday and Thursday I was up in Bay City visiting my parents, who don't have net access.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday I work a lot of hours and my hours did not allow me to use the library.
I want to keep my old IPS (along with its benefits) so I have declined to go wireless at this time, until my provider starts offering it. I am having trouble connecting my new system to the net so I will be paying for a service call in a day or two. Until then it's Library Computer time. I did purchase a used computer tower and had my old drive installed as a slave drive on it, so I am able to rescue old files, and, for now, I intend to use it rather than the laptop as my main internet connection, but right now it doesn't seem to want to connect.
