My puter is broke!

Hi!

Unfortunately my laptop is broken again and this time I think it's terminal.   So I won't be around too much until after Christmas as I won't be able to afford one til then.
Ann

I'm so sorry, Miranda. I shall miss your posts. Have a great Christmas and I shall look forward to hearing about the new 'puter afterwards  Smile
Evie

Oh no!  Apart from not having you around here, that is a general disaster - would *hate* to be without my laptop that long - but like you, would not be able to replace it straight away if it broke...  I hope you get a new one sorted before too long.    Sad

Thanks Ann and Evie.

It is a pain being without it.  Totally buggers my banking and shopping.   But not much I can do about it as my financial situation is not good.   Still, sh*t happens....

I shall also miss being on the boards.  Life is much more boring and I've no realised how bad the TV is......

Very Happy
Evie

TV really is bad.  I am so thankful for my BT Vision box, which means I can scour the schedules and set it to record when I do find something (mostly Frasier, the odd film, and Murder, She Wrote...not exactly new, cutting edge TV, but something entertaining to watch!), then I can save them and watch when I want to.  Without that and my LoveFilm rentals, I would be stuck - though my reading rate is going back up again!

Even Strictly is failing to do much for me this year, it's usually a highlight!

But yes, banking and shopping - I do both of those online too - a real nuisance to be without that access.

Miranda have you tried freecycle? Sometimes kind souls put computers up there for free, if a bit dated. I've had some lovely bits and pieces from them and donated things that I don't need any more.

Another Freecycle fan here, I have sent all sorts to new homes and always so gratefully received.

Commiserations, Miranda - I'd hate to be without my computer but I too would have to wait to replace it.

We also have, and like BT Vision - the only trouble is, the box is nearly full with things I've recorded but haven't had time to watch.

Another Freecycler here - I've used it to give and gain stuff and I agree it might be worth a try for a computer.

Hello all!  I'm back! And gosh I have missed you!


I managed to get a fairly cheap PC.  It's very odd getting used to a keyboard again ... and not having a warm lap!   Laughing

So, what have I missed?

I think I have brought down my rant rate to about 1.5 rants per week, so you can work out for yourself how many of my rants you’ve missed during your absence.
miranda

Really?  Are you ill?

Evie

Miranda - I have only just caught up with this - good news!
miranda

Thanks Evie!
