"There was a crack, a crash, and a close rattling peal..." ~ Jane Eyre

My Prince's computer, which he built himself, is named after a great hero in Greek Mythology. If we were to name my laptop, it would be "weenie."

Weenie's makers just decided to tell me days after calls back and forth that the wireless system is faulty and an advisory was sent out. Personally, I have a feeling a regular update for Vista probably screwed it all up. I hate Vista, I hate HP, and I hate that next week weenie is being shipped off to California for repairs after my Prince is nice enough to save his innards on an external hard drive since I am panicked I will lose data.

And this, my dear readers, is why technology is both a blessing and a curse. Posts will be made from work when I now get here early in the morning so I can blog and read blogs, and the next two weekends will be spent borrowing air time from friends.

Hope you are all having a better week than me and my laptop.

Awww! Don't hate HP. They are actually my favorite PC-makers. But next time, I will try a MAC.

Technology can be a wonderful thing...and mostly, it is...until something crashes. Grrr.

Best of luck getting yours fixed.

Little could C. Bronte know she was supplying you with a lifetime of appropriate quotations, lol - much less to dramatize events surrounding a computer as written about on a blog!
