I did it.
I just killed my second computer within a week.
Lightning strike through the coaxial cable data line got the first one.
The brand spankin' new Dell laptop (3 days old) got cardiac arrest today from unknown causes and won't boot, needs to be booted straight back to the vendor. Sigh. It was so pretty, too. Do I have the Golden Touch or what!?
I'm down to one old laptop with a cracked screen, working off a separate monitor. But the good news is that the techie guy came and fixed my cable (plus eliminated a splitter in the attic I didn't even know about) so I'm back in Good Signal Land today.
I swam a leisurely 1500 yards in the pool during camp. Actually I dunno if it was fast or slow or what, since all my workout records are residing in the crashed hard drive. I did 500 yards in 11:14 and did one 50 at 1:00. I know I've swum faster occasionally, but a 500 under 11:00 and a lap under a minute is smokin' fast for me. But I don't like not having all my data. I loves me my data.
