The Computer Is Not My Friend

So twice in the last couple of weeks I have had problems w/my computer. 1st all but one of my USB ports was fried. My nice computer tech neighbor came & fixed it right up. I get caught up on computer stuff, and then BAM--it's messed up again. The boys were playing on funbrain, and Coy says the computer "just shut off." When I went to try to turn it back on, it made a really bad noise, like some one stuck a pokemon card in the hard drive as it tried to start up. Then it just made two little sick beep sounds, and had a black screen. UGLY. I was having horrible thoughts of how I have just lost all the stuff I haven't saved to disks--like lots of my pictures. How bad that we have come to rely on digital stuff. At least I have. I thought my computer was completely fried. It really sounded bad. Anyway, it turns out it wasn't a big deal at all. My nice computer tech neighbor came over this morning, and in about two seconds pushed a couple of buttons, and wiggled a couple of plugs, and here I am. I will be spending the rest of the afternoon making disks of all my pictures :0) Will try to post something that you all might actually want to read, soon. Like pics of the boys :0)
