Day 273 - I must have bad computer karma

I have photos, once again, I have no ability to post them….

A slowly dying motherboard has rendered every USB port on my computer inoperable.

The only solution? A new computer. One of the good news/bad news scenarios. A great birthday gift, too bad I have to pay for it…

It could be a week before I can post again, but I'm still shooting, and I'll still be commenting on everyone's wonderful posts.

BTW - This photo is not mine, it's a blatant internet pilfer… but I'll replace it just as soon as I can.

      It must be the time of year for computer malfunctions! I just had to do a complete system restore on mine......big crash!

      There have many times that I wanted to shove my keyboard through my screen! This gave me a chuckle, even though I'm sorry for your problem! We'll miss you while your "gone".

      Oh dear - sorry to hear that. I thought for a moment you'd thrown your keyboard through the screen in frustration!!

      I agree with Gkorts : Mac are great ! At first I was reluctant because I thought it would take me too much time to use a new computer as quickly as I used my PC. But it is really easy to understand, and I'm very glad I switched !

      Ok, I feel like I'm lobbying for Apple now ! I'm not ! I hope your computer issues will be resolve very soon :D

      Poor you, I am blessed, I always could do this decision without any pressure. [b]Mac´s don´t die[/b]

      Yeah, that does hurt. Just got back from picking up my laptop at the repair shop....guess at this point a bill for that is better than a bill for a new computer. Good luck!

      I would have enjoyed doing just that to my old computer...now, why didn't I think of that?!

      I like the photo and the commentary...I think you should leave it. I have so wanted to do that.....My motherboard just died and we are having to replace it. I am blessed to have several in my home....Happy Early Birthday.
