Well, it hasn't been a happy few days at the Jersey Shore! Yesterday morning, got up and as usual grabbed some coffee and began to check my email...
In the middle of returning a client's email my home office went on red alert...I was waiting for the Star Trek music to begin, at warp speed my computer began accessing the same web page over and over, flashing warnings and moving more quickly than it had since I downloaded Office Professional.
I was waiting for Captain Kirk, or at least Mr. Spock, to whisper some solution in my ear...but no, only my poor computer groaning and bleeping. I had no photon torpedoes, my ship had entered the self destruct mode without the top officers shouting the code words!
I was sure the explosion was eminent...but then everything just stopped...frozen in time, like we entered a wormhole or something.
I gently picked up the overheated (and I'm sure exhausted machine) and took it to the computer doctor. He's not sure the old gal will make it, but he'll do his best.
So for now I'm back to using the old dinosaur, slow but steady! I only hope the doctor can salvage my pictures and word documents. If not, January 2009 really will be a brand new beginning!
