I love computers. I have much to thank the world of computing for. If it weren’t for computers I wouldn’t know all of you. Without computers I wouldn’t know Amoeba, and he is the love of my life.
Without computers I would also have a lot less stress. Right now I have one sitting in the dining room, my big Dell desktop, that will soon be on its way to the computer doctor. It has developed a wheeze and refuses to acknowledge the monitor unless I run in safe mode — which pretty much means none of my programs or graphics will work anyway. Pft.
We have managed to get Amoeba’s old Mac laptop computer fixed, and one of the wonderful IT guys out at the labs even saved all the photos — in a medium that only corresponds to Macs and won’t speak to my PCs. sigh That means I have to access what I want and processes it on the Mac, then transfer it online or email it to myself so I can get it to the computer that houses my preferred software programs ….
So, once again I would like to thank my dear friend Thom for the gift of this little Acer Netbook. It is the machine that is getting all of my blogging, working and playing done. Yesterday it helped me make my posters for the upcoming church Bible Study and this afternoon it will begin cranking out the church newsletter. In a few minutes — just after I retrieve my cottager cheese and gravy from the microwave — it will play a game of Four Winds (Chinese Rummy) with me.
