    Chris' computer has fallen and it can't get up.

    He called me to post to the rest of you that if you need to contact Chris you need to do it by phone, either his cell or his home phone.

    Does this mean that there are actually times when you are NOT mad at everybody and everything?:eek:

    A mutual friend named James asked me to find out why he couldn't contact Chris via internet. He wondered if Chris was having computer problems. So I let Jimmy know on our threads that the computer had died.[face_whistling]

    Anyway, that the story I'm sticking to...:D :D [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    i can assist as well if needed. just let me know if u need me.... MS windows shudders in terror when i walk into the room after all lol

    seriously usually the hardware is fine, or just needs a minor replacement...much cheaper than buyin a new one for sure

    Thanks for the offer guys BUT..
    The darn thing wont even turn on AND
    I have a confession to make....
    Our computer is quickly getting to the 8 year mark... yes I know. Stone aged...
    So It really IS in our best interest to buy a new one. The one we have can't even handle MS word... Which makes doing my homework fun!
    Anyway I really do appriceate the offers.. We have bee talking about a new one for a few months now.. Guess the timing was decided for us. I think that we should be up and running this weekend.
    In the meantime...
    Because the computer is broken, I get so see my husband EVEN MORE...
    [face_praying] Please God let me make it to Saturday!! [face_beatup]

    Man, that really sucks. :( The same thing happened to Zachary a couple weekends ago. He lost over 200GB of artwork and music he's been doing since he went to college. :( He's a sad little ewok nowadays.

    On the bright side, you have an excuse to get a new computer. New computers are always better than old computers. :p

    I upload pics everywhere so I don't lose them. I know when I get my flash drive I'll be ripping tons of pics off my old computer.

    Another gimic device that never really works.

    You already ahve voice command software build into your operating system, that never really works well either.

    Sorry if this comes across agressive, just tired and dreading going into work today.

    yes, totally missed it but in my feeble attempt at defense... voice activated mice do exist and I thought you were looking for one.
    Having to use a keyboard and mouse as your input devices? how quaint. [face_blush]
