Blown to Smithereens

Yep… my computer exploded, died, kapoot…. its gone gone gone! AS I was “gridhopping” and exploring new worlds I saw a new one advertised called “Virtual Cities”.  I thought this is perfect for us, since we do prim cities.  I went to download the program (it redirected me to Alpha Towne, which we had been active players in a couple years ago so was really excited to see it was being revived) and then after the download and restart,  it had eaten one of my vital .dll files AND I could not even get into ‘safe mode’ to ‘restore’ to previous date.  After numerous tries and having to turn the tower off manually, now my computer won’t come on at all.   Dratz!

I  am able to use my hubby’s computer some what but it sooooooooooooooo different than mine (he has Vista, I had XP, he uses IE I use Firefox).  It just isn’t the same at all! I feel lost and isolated without my computer.  Who would of dreamed a computer would become such an important element to the quality of life in the ‘home’? I paid my bills on it, kept in touch with childhood friends, looked up receipes, searched medical info, chatted with family and of course played ‘games’ and wiled away my leisure hours having loads of fun.   Don’t know when I will get a new one.  I’m now doing jigsaw puzzles by hand, oh lordy! Anyway, to look on the bright side, when I do get a new computer the inner workings should be higher quality and with more advanced technology than my five year old custom built one.  Smiles. 

Needless to say my blog posts will be limited.  Dratz again!
