I hope it's a good shot
The W/98 computer the one that crashed recently is the tall white tower on the left. My Xp is the black case on the right. That yellow cable is the one I just dug up.

Lets see if this works.
The image uploading is clean and easy in Blogger.
but you can see here that the image is blurry and out of focus.
I've got to learn how to fix this

Back on Bloger for awhile

I've been having computer trouble lately and I've been trying to get a hold of Markus.

The main problem being is although I know my website password, I don't remember my user name. The trouble began last Monday morning July 9th. While working away my screen went blank. Set up began and then scan disk. It took me twenty minutes to get onto my desktop so I could send the last blog entry. I've got all my work on that computer. F, and lots of diary logs as well. Not to mention hoards of photos. I want that stuff back, especially my Word files. So I looked in the phone book to find a PC service that comes to the door. I found the Geek guys and called them at work last Monday night and booked a service call for just this last Friday. Friday the 13th. One guy came by and were all very professional. He suggested he take the computer back to the shop and they'd do a diagnostic there for $45 bucks. Ok, I can live with that. I should call them in 3 days. Wednesday sounds about right.

So that same afternon about an hour before I had to leave for work with my wife's reluctant aproval, I purged my Xp computer and started everything again. Lots of data was lost but I wasn't going to spend $100 to preserve the data when I'm attempting to do that anyway. Within thirty minutes I had my Xp desktop recoverd. WhenI came back that night I and yesterday I managed to oget almost everything else set up. Except Outlook Express. So now I have a Gmail account.

I'm hoping I can salvage my email contacts and hopefully get my website up and going again asap. in other words, I'm working on it folks. So Markus, if you ever get a chance to see this please leave a comment. The previous Gmail account doesn't work.

That's all for now.
