Wow. It's been a very frustrating few weeks without a properly working computer. As any of you know that have had a computer crash, loss of power, etc., you forget how much you rely on your electronics! The most frustrating part was that it took so long to diagnose the problem. We did need a new updated line for our phone and internet service. . . the old line was damaged. But it took several service calls from our provider to figure that out. AND, we had a glitch in the operating system of our computer.
The good news is we were able to back up most of our important files and photos and we now have a brand new computer with more storage and power. Yeah! It will still take a while to get all our favorite files, photos, settings and software reinstalled, but at least we're back in business.
