Computer Problems

Please forgive my uncharacteristic absence from the internet the last four days and possibly for the next four days. My computer died. The customer service of two companies has been abysmal. It’s been a miserable and frustrating few days (including my birthday on Tuesday). In addition to not being able to tend to the blog, I have academic obligations on which I have fallen frustratingly behind. I’ll be back up to speed with regular posting as soon as I can. This might be the weekend but may be as late as Tuesday or Wednesday. There may be some sporadic posts in the meantime if I manage to find the requisite time, equipment, and energy to post around my other commitments.

As I suffer from computer withdrawal, it’s a good time to stop and remember those with far worse deprivations.

      All the news that’s fit to whine about.

    Happy belated birthday.

    Thanks, man.

    Yes, happy birthday. Have a do-over when you are back up and running, so you can include the happy part.

    Sometimes helpful when possible: Keep an “old” machine around (or find one our throw-away consumer society frequently provides) for emergencies.

    Best wishes.
