Young female person called and left a message this morning saying HP was ready for pickup but oh, it had a raging fever and bad congestion (overheating and fan problems) and it should go the The Service Center. I hesitate to call this girl a geek, because based on the chat that later transpired, if she was actually a tech, I feared for any computer she touched. Apparently, yes the HD had been backed up; no, it was still crashing; no she didn’t know if it was a virus or the HD; and no it hadn’t been fixed. I tersely agreed for HP to The Service Center (or more like Purgatory) which leaves me without a desktop for two more weeks. I could buy a new one if it wasn’t only three years old. Grrrr.
Meanwhile, I’m determined to resume blogging on the iPad once I return home, albeit a bit slowly and sans media (at least until I can figure that angle out). Hmm, my friend’s computer seems to be having video problems. Uh oh, wasn’t me!
