Woe is me
My computer problems continue and my time online may be limited. I’m getting error reports that say it’s a hard drive issue, which can’t be good. And my system keeps crashing, which is annoying.
It’s been an interesting technological evolution for me. By nature, I am a luddite. But ever since I’ve been blogging, I’ve become much friendlier with the whole techy Internet thing. I spend more time online than watching TV. And it’s starting to draw me away from activities I’ve always loved – reading, cooking, gardening.
So maybe my computer meltdown is a good thing. Time to re-evaluate.
Wherever this assessment takes me, the fact is I will still need a computer that’s reliable. And fast. And cheap. So I’m looking for feedback.
Please send your thoughts/experiences regarding suitable replacements. I’m leaning towards a laptop. I want something that’s easy to use (i.e., none of those mini contraptions). No sissy colors. Good workhorse with multitasking capabilities. And like I said. Cheap. Or at least affordable.
