Sometimes cliches say it best and if we don't "read the hand writing on the wall" we may have consequences to pay. In computer years, my machine is 'old' -almost 5. It has been sending me strange messages like "your virtual memory is low" and and I have "insufficient system resources". Now, I am old and I know my memory is not the best but to have that flashed on a screen in front of you is really insulting. Actually, there have been more serious issues like not starting and a singing tone coming from the tower, not a tune you'd want to hum along with either!
We finally decided to get a new one and it is currently sitting on the floor behind me waiting for DH to connect. I just spent over 3 hours deleting files and pictures that aren't needed. I also reduced the numbers of pictures which mysteriously had triplicated themselves. So now we're hopefully ready to do a transfer and join the 2008 computer world before the year ends! Just like with our bodies, when there's an ache or a pain, pay attention. Read the handwriting!
I am pretty proud of me, though, since I am largely self-taught regarding the computer. I figured out the internet, blogging, etsy, e-mail,etc. with no direction from a higher up. But if you don't hear from me for a bit, know that while we read the hand writing on the wall and we wanted to listen, the wall talked back and we're paying the consequences!
