Computers are evil! When they work, they are the greatest machines ever created. However, they have this tendency to “corrupt” over time. I think it might be a conspiracy by the computer manufacturers to keep you coming back for more.
I’m on my computer a lot – I work from it, obviously, as a freelance writer. I research information and I spend a fair amount of time just surfing the ‘net. So, like anything that gets continued use, it’s bound to slowly deplete of energy. But what a pain in my arse when it does.
Luckily, I have backup. The lovely mini-computer that I’m typing on now (AKA my laptop). As convenient as it is, I want a working PC. I’ve run dozen of tests and applied even more “fixes.” So why, can I ask, isn’t my computer fixed?
As much as it pains me to say, I think it might be time for a new computer. It’s not the money aspect that bothers me (although it probably should), it’s the transfer of everything to a new computer so that it’s just like the one I currently have, minus all the problems. So, I will continue for a short while in my denial, trying to fix a machine that is probably inevitably broken, and use my backup supply when the preferred method does not work to the best of its ability. Then, I will probably purchase another blessed, yet evil, machine.
