Oh, Many and Multiple HUGS to all of you who've stopped by my blog to give me cyber encouragement during my disconnection woes.
All looks very Woe-like.
Turns out not only my Modem is fried but my MOTHERBOARD is and has been, a ticking Fry-bomb. Seems a major cooling component, looks like a square thingy, was never attached! It was lounging on the bottom of the tower! One of the silver brackets that hooked it onto the Motherboard was snapped!
The tech was amazed my computer didn't fry a long time ago!!! The last tech who replaced a modem... remember , this is modem #3, never said a word! So, did he DO it? or did he just not say anything because , you know, he's a subcontracter who's only job was to repair the modem.
Did I buy a lemon from the Get-go?
I will never know.
Just like I have NO idea when the New Motherboard will be shipped plus they have to check the Power Supply ! THEN they will install the modem.
And get this!
NOW, I can't even use the computer as a word processor! Can you believe this!?!
I can't even read any of the Ebooks I have on my system.
My eldest can't do his homework!
The tech..a cutie named Kelly - but he's a guy .. wouldn't reconnect the wires.... he said NOT to use the computer at all!
So, I"m here, working on a Monday, I just transcribed over 25 phone messages! ARGH and now I'm typing this here blog update so you know I'm still kicking around....
And Bless my co-worker...she just told me she might have an old computer they were going to throw out that I could have to use as a Word Processes for my Son! Isn't that nice of her?
I can be internetless and go farkin' nuts, but at least my eldest can do his homework!
Just think ... if the motherboard does take two weeks to be shipped in like the modem, I'll be offline for a MONTH -- which means I've paid for internet access I've no access to.
How's that for sour apples?
So, Now I have to go back to work. But at least there I have internet access, even if only for 10 minutes.
No Moonlight this past Friday! They had Garth Brooks on instead.
I listened to the DJ's on the radio this AM on the way to work... I was laughing like crazy!
Wanna know why?
Because they said that Garth's going away and coming back again to perform is like his being a Groundhog.....pokes his head up to sing abit and then goes backs and hides. Sooo.....
they changed his name to Puxatawny Garth! ROTFL!!!!!
By the way, I did it! I did it! I baked a Sweet Potato in the Red Hot Embers of my Wood Stove. Just like I promised myself I would.
I have to tell you, wood cooked tater's are awesome!!!!!!!!

A whole bunch more than you may realize!
