Computer Woes

more animals

Ever have one of those days when it feels as if your computer is conspiring against you? My mac has been doing it all weekend. Today was no better. The original post I had planned for today was swallowed up into the abyss. This after two different phone calls with IT help guys at Stanford to get my account there working. Not a good computer day so I'll just get on to the contest...

Here are your random numbers:

Hi Melissa, thanks so much for picking my name. I sent in my info!

We have a big snow storm headed our why tonight. Looks like I am going to be snowbound for a few days and will be doing some reading.

Congrats, Virginia!

Sorry about your computer woes. What is it about this weekend, you with computers and me with the quilts. I hope the problem is solved for you.

Congrats Virginia.

Have a good Tuesday.

Congrats Virginia.

Sorry to hear about your computer. My problem seems to be washers. I've been going to the same laundromat since 1996 except for 4 yrs when I lived in my townhouse. Well in the last 8 week 6 different machines I was using have broken down. And I've been using different machines. Im starting to think it might be me LOL.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Congrats Virginia!

We're suppose to get that snow too.

I spent an entire day a few weeks past to update my Norton. Paid extra for the jumpstart which you would assume meant it would be quicker - not. At least it's now running better but that's because so much was deleted and I do miss my toolbars and weatherbug lol.

Sorry about the computer woes. Hubs's Mac is getting twitchy. I'll probably take it in for a tune up when I get back from NY.

Did you get it all figured out?

Virginia said...

Sorry to hear about your computer problems. I am post again right while I have a computer.

So far all we have gotten is a lot of ice and the power keeps going out from all of the tree limbs falling.

I hope your computer issues clear up. Chris' mac is acting weird (his battery) so it must be an epidemic. *g*

Congratulations Virginia!

I hope you have a great day!
