Off the air (for a while)

Filed under Back in the USA

Computers are great tools – when they work.

My desktop computer here in Mobile, Alabama has given up the ghost. At first I thought it was just the hard drive, but later tests also showed problems with the main chip on the motherboard. It took me an hour to get it to boot up properly a couple of days ago, and today it just gave up the ghost entirely. So I am off the air other than using my Acer netbook, which has turned out to be a pretty reliable little machine. I have ordered a new PC from TigerDirect, and it should be here before the weekend.
