Hi all...no, I haven't dropped off the planet. My computer died last Friday when I logged on to do some work. Panic! After two hours of trying to even turn the thing on, I decided to unplug it and take to someone to see what was wrong.
I picked it up this afternoon and it only cost me $90. I was so relieved. I had nightmares of a virus, spyware or some other malicious nasty (even though I have all the protective software), a lightning strike or other expensive trauma. It was a software glitch...no virus and thankfully, no lightning strike, so I didn't have to buy a new computer. I was looking at my bank account and wondering how much I was going to have left...
Thank you to those who emailed me...I read your emails earlier. Unfortunately, I had no way of letting anyone know what was going on. I tried on a friend's computer and Google wanted me to jump through all sorts of hoops. As it wasn't my computer, I didn't feel right saying ok to stuff she may not have wanted access to.
Anyway, all's well...thank you all for your concern. I shall do a proper post in the next day or two.
