May Day! May Day!

Well, if this isn't the story of my relationship with technology then I don't know what is.  Last week my jumbo Dell XPS had a blackout and it has yet to recover. First of all I should state, my Dell XPS is pretty snazzy, as my Dad bought me a 'gamers' computer for my design programs. Very nice thought... and it does have a great screen.... but the computer's size, weight and intro laserlights show has always been a small source of teasing by my friends. All I have to say is I think Jason Bourne used an XPS is one of his movies. 'Nuff said.

Anyway, having less than desired computer skills, I ignored the computer screen blackout and thought a few days of rest and relaxation might get the ol' girl up and running again.  Obviously a desired plan of attack.  Ignoring problems rarely makes things better and it never fixes anything.  This is probably a wise statement we could all apply to every aspect of life.  I had  just saved a ton of images on my computer on bookcases and mantles (for you, Megan!) and also a really neat furniture line that a rep brought into Duncan Fuller a few weeks ago (along with about 5,000 pictures that basically document the last 7 years of my life).  On Wednesday I am going to run over to TechBench after work and see if some professional TLC will get this trusty lap top up and running again. Please cross your fingers for me!
