COMPUTER DOWN

Hey All!  My computer has been overheating for the past 4 months.  It is either one of the fans going bad or thermal paste that has broken down.  In order to operate my computer these last few months, I've had to leave the side cover off and use a desk fan to blow air into the computer from keeping it from shutting down as often.  But even that is not really working anymore!  As an old boss of mine used to say, "Poor people have poor ways."  LOL  With the desk fan going and the loud sound of the internal fan of the computer going, I'm going deaf in my left ear!!!

So, I've finally broken down and called a repair place and I'm taking it in this afternoon.  They said their turn around time is 1 to 3 days.  OMG!  The thought of being without my computer for 3 days!!!!!  I'll go nuts!

So, that has been a main reason for nothing posted for awhile.  Every time I try, and I take too long, the computer shuts down in the middle and I lose stuff.  So, cross your fingers and send good computing thoughts my way so that I get my computer back quickly and it is nothing more serious than I am thinking!

Miss you guys!  Hope you are all well!  This computer problem also explains why I haven't been posting comments on your blogs.  Can't wait to get back to normal!

Take care all!  Hope to see you in a few days!

Best,

Curt

I know you won't get this for a few days! Hang in there, dear friend! If it's just a fan, you may even have it back tomorrow! I am finally back in blogland, and have been down since March 11th! How do you spell crazy? The boys look great in their photo! Good luck!

Although we all miss your posts, Curt, maybe this computer down time has happened so you can focus on something else for a few days and not be distracted by your computer. I'm sure you will find something to do that will in turn inspire your creativity ... you always do! Hugs to your crew!

What did we all do before computers, cell phones and Starbucks? Geez! Hope you're up and running soon cuz I just love seeing what you're up to. I made coasters today using Staz-on and permanent markers. They came out nice. Now I've gotta put a sealant on them. Good luck with the 'puter!

Sounds like a dangerous situation. Perhaps it's time for a new computer. Sometimes repair can be quite expensive. Hope you are back on-line and blogging soon.

Percy said...

Sending positive computer vibes your way! Hope to see you soon!

Oh Curt, I'll be sending 'good computer vibrations' your way! Don't know how we ever survived without all this technology that rules our lives now. Gosh, I remember when my IMB typewriter was the bee's knees...am I dating myself now :o?
