Uh Huh, I'm Guilty


I hope that I'm only guilty of attempted murder, or negligent homicide; I'm sure hoping I'm not guity of murder 1 here.
I decided that I'd do an annual puter clean up today; I'm thinking now that it might not have been such a good idea. I turned booted off my puter in the proper way, I turned off all of the power strips, I took the cover off the puter so I could dust it out with a can of air; just as I've done many times. I was getting it all ready for a new tax season you see.
After I put the cover back on, turned on the power strips, I pushed the button that is supposed to turn on the computer and it didn't turn on. I checked the power strip, I checked this, and that. I took the cover back off to see if the air had disconnected something, nothing was that I could see. I don't know what's up with the old girl, she was fine before I decided to clean her.
Now she's in town waiting on the puter doctor to get a chance to look her over. I sure hope he can revive her cause having to buy a new computer right now would be about all it would take to push me over the edge.
I have a budget to complete over the next few days, and several months posting to do on 2 accounts (the guy just got the stuff to me), and my puter holds all the information I need to do all that stuff.
I think I just found another gray hair.

That would give me a head full of grey hairs. Honestly, some of my crabbiest times have been when the computer crashed, taking with it all of its precious information.

Oh man! It seems they are taking to rebelling because I've seen lots of folks having computer issues lately, me included!

Sally said...

Mercy me, just what you didn't need! Hopefully, the computer guy can fix you right up. Keeping fingers crossed here. (HUGS)

Ooooh, our worlds come crashing down (worse than clothes falling in the closet) when our 'puters go on the fritz! You probably spread around the dust and got it upset. I'll be praying that the computer doc can fix it right up for you!

Oh I HATE when anything goes wrong with my computer! I just had mine in the shop in March. They had to wipe out the whole hard drive and start again. They saved the files I asked them to, and it wasn't really expensive but just a complete hassle!

Good luck with the computer doctor.

Oh dear! Fingers crossed it's all in working order soon!

A computer crashing is right up there with deleting your blog by mistake...scary stuff. I'm sure it's just a glitch of some sort...hang in there.

I hate when the computers don't work like we want them to. We've been having router problems this week. Seems like if its not one thing its another! Hope you get it fixed soon.

Don't feel bad. My computer caught a virus from something and it besided it was time to wipe everything off here and start like it was new. I lost all my pictures and everything. Teaches me not to back up my stuff i put on here.

Phyllis said...

Umm Did you check to see if the power strip was plugged in? The cicuit breaker? yeah.
I hope it was something cheap!

The only thing holding my Frankenstein computer together is cigarette tar and chicken fat.

This is also why I don't allow anyone else to touch it. I don't need the law suits.
