Computer Outage Strikes doug's Site; Despair Appreciated But Not Necessary

I'm sending my computer over to my local "Hammer and Chisel Cyber-Services" to deal with some issues. I'll be only on sporadically.  


The sacking planned for my internal staff will be postponed due  to layoffs.

  14. I have an "Irish Screwdriver" for PC systems on order in case of the worst, AA.

    Thanks for the "welcome drone" (Did you get a that nifty joint-leasing deal from Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano?)

    I did notice some extra rotor noises over the house. ;-)

  16. lol....It's very frustrating, Iri Ani with the slowness of computer repair. Because of the bad economy they are backed up at the store I trusted to so the work...Can't blame them.


    I hope to get back to my regular blogging soon.

  17. Wow.. you mean it isn't done yet?!!!
    Yeow!
    You must have had a problem more serious than I had thought.

  18. Yeah, I felt the same way, but I got a call this morning, Chuck, and the repair guy got the thing fixed. There was a three-day backlog which I knew about but I didn't want to take it to some shop where I didn't have a prior background with. The service staff at "Hammer and Chisel" are experts at the delicate 'mallet and blowtorch' work needed for the older computer.

    In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have bought a PC made in Albania.

  20. You'll thank me later. Avoid street vendors in Tirana especially.

  21. Right now by the time I get on here Doug, I am off as I have to format this wireless as it's so slow.
    Yet thank you for the comments and I am taking some time to just visit a few. And then it's back
    to a regime which I made a choice with. Again thanks there Doug.
