My computer is fixed. BN ended up installing a new hard drive and it seems to be working just fine.
But I don't trust it. I'm finding it hard to be on here without my shoulders going up in that tense anticipation one gets before a firecracker goes off.
And in my techno-ignorance, I don't really know if I can trust this laptop anymore.
I was watching t.v. with BN last night while he continued installing drivers (whatever they are) onto this thing and a commercial came on for online computer issue help. It started with a guy standing in front of a pile of old computers and asked if your computer needed to be in this pile and I was steadily shaking my head.
I was secretly hoping BN couldn't fix the durn thing and I'd happily march off to the Apple store and acquire a shiny new one. And buy one of the really pretty neoprene sleeves that won't fit this one.
Phooey to Windows or IBM compats or whatever these are called.
But I guess I won't lose anything by blogging. It's online afterall. In the netherland I don't comprehend.
BTW, I am so happy with this weather. 80s rock!
