Computer crash

Sorry to disappear like that, but my computer crashed. It's been down all week.

I just now got it back - this is the very first thing I've done - so don't expect too much until I get caught up with everything else.

And no, I didn't get a lot of work done while it was down, either. When I don't have a computer, I'm always too depressed to work. :)

I did read five books this week, so I suppose I'll be writing reviews of them, eventually. But otherwise, I kept wondering what I used to do when I didn't have a computer. I was completely lost without it.

If you're wondering, it turned out to be just a bad video card. I upgraded to a better card, while I had the chance (if I'd sent the old card back for warranty replacement, my computer would have been down for weeks), but after they replaced the card, the repair shop told me that the motherboard is going bad, too!

I'm on my third motherboard (my third video card, as well), but this one isn't under warranty because it was a replacement for the last one that went bad. Apparently, the warranty doesn't reset. Surprise, surprise.

Well, my computer is working again, for now, but the motherboard could go at any time. Fun, huh? Maybe I need to bite the bullet and buy a new computer...

But not today.

I get the same way when my computer isn't working. It just makes me feel helpless and angry!

So glad you're back, we need you more than ever. Can you believe Romney's VP pick?

I'm sure you'll have a field day with that when you get around to it.

I don't know, John. I'm still trying to get a handle on it. I must say that I'm surprised. I really didn't expect Romney to pick Paul Ryan!

I'm not sure what Romney's thinking is there, unless he's simply trying to pump up the GOP base. I can't imagine the middle class supporting the Ryan budget plan. But then, I can't imagine the middle class supporting the Republican Party at all.

And the rich will certainly be happy! Maybe this is just about getting even more donations from billionaires?
