Computer woes.

My netbook is dead. I'm hoping to resuscitate it, however, by buying a new power cord.

If that doesn't work, not only is my netbook's life over, mine is too.

Funny how we start relying on these technical things. My husband and I bought our first computer in 1996. Before that...we didn't even know how to use them. Now, we have two desktops, a (broken) laptop and my little netbook. The laptop's LCD was broken when (I think) the dog jumped down from the bed onto it. (My son had it in a laptop bag on the floor.) And netbook is konked out.

What am I going to do? How will I escape to write or edit? My netbook is like another appendage; it goes everywhere with me. Even (cough) into the bathroom (the only room with a door that locks). If I can't get it fixed...what will I do? I'll have to use one of the desktops! I'll be stuck in the same place! I won't be able to escape!

Hard to believe that only fifteen years ago, we were completely satisfied and comfortable with only one computer...

How many computers do you have? Which one can't you live without?


  1. I love my tech! I have my main PC (this is used the most by far), 2 laptops (1 is decrepit), an ongoing project PC that I need to finish building, and an iPod Touch, though that's more for emails than real writing. :-)

    When I move, I'll be down to the laptop and iPod, which will take some getting used to. Luckily the keyboard on the lappy is pretty good. :)

    Hope your power cord does the trick!


  2. DH and I both have to have 2 for work, not our choice, the darn day jobs. I have a laptop, netbook and desktop. I could live without the desktop.
    Hope it's only the power cord!

  3. eeesh good luck with that I cant imagine that happening to me.
