Let the past sleep, but let it sleep in the sweet embrace of Christ, and let us go on into the invincible future with Him. (Oswalt Chambers)

Where Am I?

My laptop is in the repair shop having an operation to remove two memory resident viruses.

First I tried to ignore it. It got worse. Then I tried to fix it myself. I spent hours and hours for naught and got very frustrated.

Now it's in the competent hands of "Yes, I can fix that!" Richard waiting its turn to be attended to in his one man repair shop.

Meanwhile, I'm using a ten year old laptop from the closet. Some of the keys don't work unless they're pounded on. It only has one USB port, no functional battery so I have to set the date and time everytime I turn it on, and it's slow, slow, slow.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

It's amazing how attached we get to our computers, isn't it? Hope yours is home from the hospital soon.

It's good you have an expert nearby who can repair it. I wouldn't know where to begin.

I'll bet your old laptop just needs a new battery, the kind which is very small. My old computer had the same problem about not retaining the date, etc and a $5 battery fixed it. I think it's called a "CMOS" battery (or something like that).
