Lifeless without a pc

How modern of todays society can i get ? Exactly 1 week ago today my pc what i will call farted and my blog will explain the stench....

So about a week ago my pc was acting very strange and i emailed DirtyLilSecret61 cause i know she knows more than just where the enter button is, and so she gave me a suggestion or 2, yet my pc never made it that far....i posted my blog just like any other blog of the morning, and when i was done-i turned off my pc never knowing that when i turn it back on that day wasn't going to work.

Thats right, i turned my pc on later that day and watched as my pc loaded itself up, did a self virus scan show the "windows 98" picture, the pc flickerd and i waited until my desktop would appear within seconds, but not this time around my friends. What i got instead was a black screen with "Please check signal frequency"(yes the programmer had the decency to write please on such an error-how thoughtful) printed on the screen while i heard my pc load up in the backround with its funky load up music. I thought it was my monitor so i unplugged my monitor and screen said "no signal" so that wasnt it, i pushed all the funky buttons on the pc monitor , of coarse nothing happened...

throughout the 7 days i constantly turned on and off my pc hopeing that this time a miracle would happen, after the windows 98 logo my heart would stop for what seemed like an hour as i see if i get my desktop or the black screen with the "please" logo on it....yet with such dissapointment the "please" logo came up. I even went down to "cableone" to have my internet put on vacation status while i figure what to do....i even thought of going down to the dreaded rent-a-center to get a temporary laptop.(no this not a laptop im useing)

I honestly dont know what happened yet so yesterday after the 100th time i turned on my pc, i actually went into the other room came back and there was a blue blury screen !!!! i tried reading it, but all i got was at the top wich was highlighted reading "windows 98" with some garbage that i couldnt read underneath.

I held my breath reseted the pc once again, watched it boot, watched the windows 98 pop up....and instead of the "please" i had my desktop back ! but it was under "safe mode" so i quickly fixed that, then i went to my settings and my color was/is missing something...I used to have 4 now at the present i only have 3...256 colors, high colors (16 bit) and true colors (32 bit) and i had one more wich is missing and i was using wich was just plain 32 bit....

But i tell you what for the past 7 days ive been so bored ! the time im usually on the internet i had to do something else, like watch tv or pickup my lonely ps2 ! Its been horrible,it feels SOOOO good to blog again and im realizing how spoiled i am living in a society that in almost every home today is hooked up to the internet.

I realize that there is still something wrong with my pc and ill take what i got now and hopefully figure it out along the way whats wrong with the pc, yet this still remains...

How spoiled am spoiled are u ? Can u honestly live without an internet for 7 days ?

I could not live without internet, or my computer for seven days. When I got stranded in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago, I went a night without internet or my computer and I was having withdrawls.

In Seattle the answer to your problems is RE-PC.
I love that place! I have a Mac, and their mac guy is a riot to talk to........
He always fixes my (sometimes self inflicted) problems with in a couple of hours.

I did go for about 6 days once, I just couldn't get into the city sooner....and I also found I had lots of time on my hands....... but it is usually around 4 am.......

Although, that is a great time to go for a walk........ it is nice and quiet...

[blog talldarkavg1] --sorry big guy the pc is in denial and is pouting in the corner.

[blog lovelylady]-Thanx for stopping by !! OH Washington-how i miss that state so much. lived 2 hours from Seattle in a town called Port Angeles....Yesterday in fact i was just talking with someone from that area, and i was saying its sooo hard to sleep (graveyard shift worker here) during the day when its 110* outside-even though the cooler is know what their response was ?....."its raining here".

This town here is a dirt town you can throw a rock and make it across town. So something like this problem would cost just pennies in a bigger town, yet something like this in a dirt town would cost an arm and a leg for their profit , you know ?
