Computer Woes

by lora on July 12, 2007

I will not be posting for the next few days unless I use one of the other computers in the house. My computer has been having power cord problems, to the point that my battery won’t charge with it. No battery… no computer. My laptop is new to me and for a while I didn’t realize there was a problem with the temperature of the power cord. The adapter and connector both would get so hot to the touch that it would be painful if you did touch it. Lindsay pointed out that her power cord didn’t do that, and alerted us to the problem. My procrastination has put us in the position we are in. If I had called when I first discovered it, I could have had a new cord… and not be without my beloved computer. I will also lose my computer again in a couple of weeks because the disc drive isn’t opening and I will have to send it in for replacement. These are really minor frustrations in life, but frustrations none the less. You don’t really realize how much you depend upon technology, until it’s ripped from your loving arms. No, really, I’ll be O.K. … it’s just my lifeline to the world… I mean… it’s just a computer.

Onto other technical difficulties… if you are linking to my blog by using the address www. please stop now. We have found a technical glitch in that address. Your computer won’t blow up or anything, the link just isn’t working correctly. If you want to go to any of my other pages by clicking the “Next” button at the bottom of the page… it takes you no where special. So, the better link to use is

I hope that we can get these problems solved in short order, as I have a LOT of things to get ready for school, many of them using my computer.

Thanks to all who stop by, I really appreciate it. If you haven’t left me a note letting me know you are visiting, please do!
