I was not abducted by aliens
I was not abducted by aliens
I figured I had better add a post here, before everyone figured I had fallen off the face of the planet. First of all, I would like to say, I hate my computer. It has been the bane of my existance for a while now. Everything was going so great. Then we had a power surge and my external hard drive crashed, so we were working on fixing it. It also seemed to screw up my computer, which we had just gotten fixed the way I wanted it. I have not been online for quite a while because of messed up equipment. Several times I have been tempted to beat the stupid thing with a baseball bat. It sure couldn't make it any more screwed up.
Anyway, I am now using a different computer and can at least get online, and hopefully soon I will be able to have mine back and all fixed. I do not know why, but that is a pet peeve of mine. The three things that I don't ever want to borrow from anyone else is underwear, a car, or a computer. I guess the reason I hate using someone else's computer is that I feel strange installing or changing stuff on it, and it drives me nuts not having it set up the way I want. I also tend to do things with a computer that most average people don't do, and it's such a hassle to worry about making sure that all the cookies are deleted, all the adult material is removed, and all that crap.
Unfortunately, I lost quite a few of my photograhs when my computer took a nosedive, because we had to reformat it. I am a little upset about that, but we will just have to take some new ones I suppose. Maybe that will make me feel a little better. Marc has most of the older ones all backed up, so it was not a total loss. I would have bawled.
I have decided to re-think my original thought process that I would respond to every message I recieved. Especially after not logging on for quite a while. We have been reading messages for 4 hours now, and it just is not humanly possible to answer them all. So tonight I made friends with the Delete button. We have it narrowed down to a couple of hundred messages now. Then Marc and I sorted them, and took different people to talk to further, so that should help. Anyone I had already been talking to on more than a very casual level I kept, and he has taken most of the newer replies that we saved. Hopefully that will speed the process up.
I intend to start contacting people soon for a cup of coffee or something. It is so hard to get to know anyone on here, really. You don't want to just rush and meet everyone who sends a reply, but emailing forever is not productive either. So don't be surprised if you hear from me soon if I said i would get ahold of you
I will keep this one short and will add something more exciting later. My son will be coming down to get his morning cup of before school coffee soon, so I should probably go brew it.
