Well, weekly update didn’t happen here. Life intervened and my laptop died – on the 12th, just one day short of a week from the last post. What with trying to replace the laptop and reload all my applications and retrieve my writing files from Mozy, besides working a day job, I simply didn’t get it done.
1 – Don’t expect a laptop to last any more than three years. Set aside funds for a new one as soon as you have purchased the current model.
2 – Make sure you have a backup plan for using a computer in the rift. Thank goodness, I could go to my workplace to post my daily devotional blog.
3 – Remember Murpy’s Law and its corollary: If anything can go wrong, it will. And at the worst possible moment.
The upshot is that I have a new computer. I’ve been dragged, kicking and screaming, into the world of Windows Vista. Hopefully they have most of the bugs out of it by now. I have done the recovery disc backups for the new system. The next step is to load all my applications, so I can restore from my Mozy backups.
Then I can get back to my writing. I hope….
