I Am Still Down

I still haven't received my recovery discs from Dell so my computer is still in its broken mode at least a buddy is nice enough to let me use his machine so I can stay semi in touch with the cyber world. The problem is that he has dial up service only and its slow as Christmas to a four year old and he uses AOL which I absolutely despise, oh well thats life.

He does at least get FOX news and a gazillion other channels I don't so I have something to look at while pages load. I also don't have access to my favorites list so surfing is limited to the few sites I can remember the URLs for.

I should be back to regular posting early next week unless my computer is in worse condition than just a couple corrupted files in Windows XP but I will lose all my files at least most of my pictures have been backed up. I use Blogger's Picassa service to save all the pictures I have posted here so that's a big chunk of them right there and most of the rest are on disc. I guess I should have gotten Carbonite's back up services long ago but stupid me kept putting it off and now I am paying the price for my inaction so be smart and spend $5 a month for their service. I wish I had.

I've been off the internet for almost a month, Goat. I sent my pc in for repair and it's under warranty, so it was sent via UPS to HP and that's how long it took them to return it to me. I didn't have an alternate pc to post from so in my case it was total withdrawal. I hope you get up and running soon!

Carbonite is worth much more than they charge. I'm glad I had it because HP set my pc back to it's original condition, but it didn't take long to click on the Carbonite icon and download all my files. If I hadn't had it I would have had to download everything to CD's before I sent the pc to them, so I highly recommend it.
