come home! All is forgiven!

You don't realize how much you value an appliance until you lose it.

I have learned that I can live without a microwave. Oh, sure, it's handy, but not essential. On the other hand, a week without a hot water heater seven years ago means that I still breathe a quiet prayer of relief each time my shower is warm.

At the moment, I have no computer. This is the second time in less than two weeks that I have brought it into the shop (I'm at the library)and been told to wait. Oh, sure, blogs are fun and I like the easy access to the BBC, but I hadn't realized just how much I have come to rely upon e-mail. Wow.

Anyway, the library has Internet access, but I appear to be the only person who is typing. I'm waiting to be asked to be more quiet.

That is most certainly a disaster :-( As My house is stuffed full of PC's of one sort and another, the only time I have this problem is when the power is out, which can be for a couple of days at a time.

Tell the librarian that its a life-or-death emergency - if he's half-way human, he'll understand!

Hopefullly your PC will be well and ready to pick up very soon...

Oh, I can't live without my computers. I'm on it all day for work, and half the night for fun and blogging. I need to get a life.

I, too, learned to live without a microwave when mine went kaput. I have one now, given to me by someone moving into a house that already had one. But I use it far less than the old days.

But I think I'd have to go into a program to break my compute addiction.

my computer reboots itself all the time, and I get an error saying it has recovered from a serious malfunction. This has been going on for some time. I have my fingers crossed, and I have tried to make sure I have back up copies of all the stuff that matters.

I am not sure I would want a new computer, I would almost prefer to have this old thing, with its familiar software.

Anyway, I feel for you, and hope you get it fixed soon. I really don't like to think about life without email and all my online friends.

I think I could live without my microwave, but definitely not my computer. I could probably live without my cell phone too . . .
