No Entries

Dear Ones

I may get back to posting entries on Vagabond Journeys one day soon. I hope so, but right now I don't feel like it. It's been three days of hell. After two full back to factory restorations my computer is worse off than it was before the crash. My settings don't stay set. The desk top doesn't fit the screen such that the Start button is hidden, it spite of changing the screen resolution. I have trouble logging on each time. I learned Tuesday night that my backup files are inaccessible even though I followed the directions carefully. I have spent many hours on the phone over three days squinting to try to read instructions in small white font on a gray background until my head hurts. The new systems are very poor and not designed for a guy like me. I have lost a lot of freedom and flexibility. If I can do anything it will be reading blogs and emails and commenting. I won't try to save anything else.

What a downer! Computers are wonderful until something goes wrong with them. My son Dan is so computer knowledgeable he can get me out of a really bad bind, especially when his son Dante got me in it. I am not letting anyone on my computer now. It's not worth it! I hope you recover soon from your losses and can start writing again.

I miss your blog entries and will certainly look forward to when things get back to normal for you! You're the third person I know who has had this problem in the past two weeks (I'm sure that's little comfort to you at this time). Computers are indeed wonderful UNTIL something goes wrong.....I often yearn for the simple days before we had all this technical crap! Hang in there, and take care!

We become so accustomed to this technology that when we do not have it, our frustration level skyrockets. Hope you get things resolved soon.
