Computer Killer

Last post, I said my next skill to add was Ghost Wrangler - actually it was Computer Killer. This Saturday my computer crashed. Windows always crashes, but this was more than just reboot. It just quit in the middle of burning a DVD and next thing I know I have the "black screen of death." My PC needed the ICU.

This is the computer that has every baby picture, every tax return, every everything - important and not so important. It is the computer I absolutely need. And it was dead. So we took it to a local computer guy. It took him 5 minutes to figure out that nothing could be done. It needed a total refresh. Thank God, Scott bought an external back up drives. So here I am, up and running on a refreshed machine. After countless hours reloading most everything, I've (mostly) restored my machine to March 3, 2010 (my last back up).

While everyone else was enjoying the nice spring weather - I spent the weekend wrangling with my computer. Thanks to Scott for taking point on the kids, while I fought with my PC.

That is life in the stroller lane.
