My computer fell down and then it crashed. It lost consciousness for about 18 hours and resisted numerous restart attempts. But now, it seems to have mysteriously recovered – for the time being.
P.S. 7/23 – Computer’s health was very bad again today. Computer froze/phased out repeatedly, required replacement of “bad sectors.” I will spare readers further updates – suffice to say, if things slow down, that is why. If computer must be removed for a time, I’ll at least try to address comments in Internet cafes.
P.S. 7/31 – The hard drive seemed to stop for good (expire?) on 7/29. The computer is now in the shop, getting a hard drive transplant. (Yes, I am borrowing some time on somebody else’s computer at the moment.) Fortunately, the price turned out to be much lower than prior estimates (assuming they are doing everything they need to do to revive it). So, at this point it seems that I will not have to do anything drastic to raise computer repair funds. I hope to have it back and working by August 1.
8/2 – Looks as though it’s going to be a while before the computer is working again… It’s not the hard drive after all – it’s the motherboard! For the next couple of weeks, my Internet access will be limited, but I’ll do the best I can with this situation…
