I have been telling Merrill, that instead of fixing (or the pursuit of trying to fix) our five year old computer, we should just splurge with a small amount of our tax return, and buy a new one.
Novel idea, I know...
He was hesitant as the newly acquired technology would soon be outdated (but our existing computer would be even more outdated!!) so...
We had Austin, Merrill's brother who is computer (and other electronic toy) savvy come and assist us in expanding the size of our hard drive.. it's been a process as our computer is much like a dinosaur, with plates on it's back.. very annoying plates.. and this technology is dated to pre-Autin's awesome knowledgeness... in other words, slow in going.
Yesterday morning, the plated dinosauric computer did not wake from it's previous night's slumber.
I, however, woke to yelling (some potty words were shouted I am sure, most of the words a little indiscernible..), the sound of objects being thrown, and what sounded like a yelp or two (at least I didn't exaggerate it into emotional sobbing Mer :)...).. it was an interesting wake-up call.
So, should I say I won?
We are getting anew computer, after all :D
I have MANY things to post.. but those might just have to wait until either A- Austin can resurrect the beast, or B- our newly built Dell gets here sooner than expected.. or I guess there's a third option, I live at the hotel when I need to post?
