Last weekend my computer at home started to refuse to boot completely, and if it did, it ran incredibly slowly. Frankly, I’m surprised it’s lasted as long as it has. I’ve had it for at least 12 years, and the OP is so old that it won’t support the latest versions of some major software packages, such as JAVA. I was hoping it would hold out until Christmas. Ah, well. It’s been one of those weeks.
Anyway, I’ll be getting a new computer sometime in the next week (I hope), but I’m not going to rush out and buy any old thing. My wife and I will discuss what will best suit our needs and shop carefully. In addition to the computer, I’m going to have to replace a window in my car, plus I’ve had AC work done in the last week, so cash flow isn’t exactly what I expected it would be. I may wait a week or two and see if I can find a good back to school sale.
What this means is I won’t be blogging much until the new computer is in place. It’s too tedious to try to type much in from my phone. The summer term ends this week, with my final exam scheduled for Thursday, so having a few free minutes at work isn’t likely. As a result, things might be a bit quite around here for a little while.
