Bad news, friends.
I am posting from my phone, which I really hate to do. It is slow, tedious, and cramps up my thumbs. It also is very limiting in terms of formatting and using photos. It is a last resort. But my computer crashed. I never thought it would happen to us...
UGH!!!! This is not a good time for this to happen. We have been working on a number of adoption grants for our little CY over in Taiwan. And we were right in the middle , literally, of a BIG ONE (online application 99% filled out; written "essay" questions nearly complete) and the thing locked up tight. For good. It ain't foolin this time. Baby is in lala land. It is truly dead.
So that grant work is lost and we have to start over. :-( Our hundreds of family photos appear lost, our many documents and records lost...our TAIWAN DOSSIER which we scanned in item by item...all appears lost.!!!
I am trying really, really hard not to freak. I am a low tech girl and my mind is boggled. Fortunately Eric has a couple people in mind who may be able to go on a search and rescue mission for all those very important bits and bytes. Oh Jesus please save our data!
We were hoping to delay this (getting a different computer) for several months from now, because all our extra (???) pennies need to go to the adoption-- but now we truly have to replace that once reliable ole computer with something that can hack the beating we give it on a daily basis.
Hey, anybody know of some good online stores for reburbished computers?
