So in the storm of the technological deficit (no working computer) we headed down the road to a big computer store for a fix.
After looking at all the new shiny models which would of course require new printers, scanners, keyboards and the like, I could see the cash registers heating up.
Another thing I could see, that neither my wife nor I liked, was having to reinstall all the programs on the new machine. So painful was the thought that I determined once again to try to just fix the problem with my (out of date) hard drive. I finally found a store that didnt have a line of people waiting for the latest new model and a salesman who would listen to my dilemma. He promised to try his darnedest to fix the old machine and at least transfer as much data as possible from it into a newer version that would also be compatible with my printer and the other still functional accessories.
So, if you dont hear from me for a few days it will be because Im still trying to figure out how this model works. Oh, I forgot, while I dont have email, facebook, I dont twitter, or surf the web, I still have a phone.
