Thanks to my anonymous "tag" donor for the adorable tiger.
I'm typing this really fast so excuse any errors.
My motherboard is gone is my E-Machine. I'm waiting for a Fed-Ex box to be sent to I can pack it up and ship it off. Like they told me...I should be happy....YEAH...I'm getting a brand new computer. Just one thing is wrong with this picture....I had a brand new computer not quite 4 months ago that died on me. I think they missed my point. *#&(^!@$%
I'm back on my dinosaur and couldn't stay connected last night for the life of me. My virus scan updating kept shutting the computer down. I'm probably looking at a month (they say 10-14 days after they receive it). Somehow, I don't have much faith in the 10-14 day thing since it took almost two weeks to get a part that should have been here in 3 days.
I'm looking into a backup right now. Becky, my oldest daughter, dropped the bombshell that she has built two computers for herself. That's the avenue I'm taking.
I'm waiting until next weekend to send my PC back because she wants to remove my hard drive and download it into the one she builds. I have no idea if all my documents are in my external drive or not. She backs her stuff up on CD's and her external drive. I guess I will start that also.
The shock is beginning to wear off. I won one battle but the war with E-Machine/Gateway is continuing. I don't have much faith that my "brand new" computer is going to be any better than my 3 1/2 month "old" one which is why I'm forging ahead with another computer.
Wow, I'm still connected...lol...must be my lucky night.
I'm going to visit as many journals as I can hit. If I miss any of you tonight, I will try to keep catching up with you. Don't forget about me if I don't get around as much. I haven't forgotten you....I just don't know how long this ancient computer of mine will hold up.
HUGS to everyone......you are the best!
