Just in case I suddenly disappear from the Internet,
Puns aside, it's seriously on its way out. Paul spoke with my dear father-in-law, the computer expert, this morning. We were informed that to pour any money into a machine that's still running WindowsME (yes, I said ME, as in Millenium Edition) would be foolish. Well, we didn't even have the money to fix it, and certainly not to replace it. I was just bemoaning that fact when Paul informed me I should check my book orders. I said, "I will, when I can get the page to open (grrrr). How'm I going to run an on-line business like this? (grrr)" He said, "Check your orders!" I finally did, and about choked. We had just sold a very rare book! So, in a few weeks I will be able to replace this old box with a newly refurbished one, and, Lord willing, have a bit left over for a few other expenses that have crept up on us.
Oh, and I said all that to say that my computer in the meantime is, like a very old woman, extremely slow, and refusing to perform some functions altogether (like playing videos). My online activities have been drastically impaired. I'm still following my friends' blogs. But those of you with razzle-dazzle comment systems will be getting much less feedback from Yours Truly. Enjoy it while it lasts!
