I find it amazing how we, who blog and use our computers as the storage location of our life's artifacts, are so dependent on these miracle machines that allow us to communicate across the world, learn so many things we never knew, do research in a fraction of the time of what was necessary in the past, and give us so much joy and pleasure (/sarc).
Today I awoke to a startling sight - a black monitor screen! Much perturbed, I tried to switch the computer on to no avail. It did not jump to life with familiar beeping and gentle hum to which I had grown accustomed. It remained deathly silent. Dread crept over me as I considered all that I entrust to this humble grey box, and the possibility that it was lost.......lost forever.
Thankfully, the problem was only a bad power supply which was replaced at no charge since my dear husband purchased the new one less than thirty days ago. My heart is again at rest, but it is now time to implement my plan to back up all my data lest the day of wrath comes and I really lose it all.
