…the rest of the year has been canceled.
Well, okay, not quite, but it sure is tempting.
Wednesday night when I shut down my computer all was well. Thursday morning when I booted it up my monitor wouldn’t come on. I turned it off and back on and it lit up for a few seconds – long enough to see the screen – and went dark again.
Wash, rinse, repeat.
So, I set up my tablet finally and got it and my phone connected to my WiFi. (I’ve only had them both for a month…)
Then at work yesterday I remembered that I have a laptop. (DUH!) (But in my own defense I was running on maybe four hours of sleep.)
The monitor did not miraculously heal itself while I was at work, so it looks like I’m going to be shopping for a new one.
Anyhow, my laptop is now plugged in and connected to the router. (It still needs to go to the shop for a wireless card – and a new battery). The keyboard is strange and for some reason it refuses to acknowledge my mouse so I’m using the wireless one, but at least I’m up and running on something other than phone and tablet.
I’m really glad that I email my novels to myself as backup so I can at least pull excerpts to set up snippets for next month.
Meanwhile, I’m working doubles both days this weekend so won’t have a lot of time to miss having access to all of my files.
