Pardon the interruption of several missed posting days. Computer had a trip to the ER.
This failure has proven to be a most upsetting event. Not the failure of the computer, but the failure of me in being unable to fix it myself. You see, I am normally able to fix things that break or quit running. If I can see the pieces and parts of a machine or something I can figure out how it works. Once I understand how it works, I can fix it when it stops working.
But this is not the case with a computer. I am obsolete as a "fixer" of computers. There are no moving parts, and when you take the lid off, it looks like the view of a city from 50,000 feet up.
