Yes, it happened. I went to juice-up the computer and BAM! Nothing. Nada. Zilch. All day, no computer. No posting. No email. No web designing. Cleaning? C'mon! Why would you even suggest that?! Fortunately, I'm married to MacGyver, who can also fix computers! I didn't mention that in my post about him, 'cause that would just be bragging. And I'm no braggart! My mom raised us better than that. MacGyver came home from a very long day at work and bless his heart, took my computer apart. He and our son drove to two office supply stores and eventually came back with a new hard drive. MacGyver worked on it until 11:30. We're not sure if the rebooting worked, as we went to bed. And Lord knows I'm not going to turn that computer on myself. Spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R with me.
So for now, I'm working off MacGyver's old, slow laptop. I'm certain that he'll get my computer fixed soon. It's a matter of principle.
