Sorry so late! Over a week without a computer! Well, there's the mini, but my fingers are just too large to navigate its keyboard with any accuracy or speed, but it's great for traveling and reading emails. Period. My old computer is in the hands of the Geek Squad, and I'm hoping for good news.
There is the possibility that in ten years I'll be springing for a third new computer... what's up with that? I should have sprung for the MAC in the beginning and just been done with it, right? I do believe at this point it would have been the better deal. Me and PCs just aren't cutting it. The worst of it is I'll probably be visiting the Squad again when my computer comes back to have the hard drive recovered. I've paid for Carbonite for 2 years feeling secure in the fact that my files would be backed up and easily recovered. WRONG! At least for me, a person who has no technical abilities at all. Spent over an hour trying to recover just one document, 1/2 hour sitting in a chat queue looking for help, big sigh, I'll be returning there to wait some more with hopes someone can direct me on how to open the damn files that are showing as recovered!
As I've grown older I find I have very little or no patience at all waiting for answers to something that should be easy, and undoubtably is, for some. I'm seriously leaning toward cancelling the Carbonite subscription and counting on being able to recover the hard drive 3 years from now.
Wish I was writing about something more... writery, or at least posting some cool, or hot, pics of hunks, or adorable animals, or anything aside from - Another One Bites The Dust!!
