Some Fun I've Been having, The Past Few Months.

          My computer's not supposed to break down until November.
          For two years running, during every single year I have been an official participant in NaNoWriMo,  I have had computer problems. This year, they started way too early, and have been well-nigh continuous. My ex-husband Fred even came out a couple of weeks ago and managed to get one of them working, but it died two days later when the lady upstairs (love living in flats, love, love, love the buffalo herd in the middle of the night) vacuumed her rug.
          There are one (Terror's, working), two (cheap little old laptop which writes very unreliable text files) three (Fred's old computer, which he gave me when he got a new one when mine died) four, five, six, seven--at least seven computers and one AlphaSmart in the house. So far, the AlphaSmart's been the most reliable, but I can neither print, nor save to floppy on it.
          You know who killed Fred's old computer? Bill Gates. Of course, Windows Media Player 10 (Curse you, Evil Windows Media Player 10!) killed it, downloading to my computer. I really should have known better, I think the same thing happened to my old system too.
          No longer will I trust anything that comes out of Microsoft, unless it has impeccable references and a computer repair guarantee.
