The Worms Go In
It finally happened, my sweet little computer died. We were hit by a worm last week and despite all Hubby's best efforts and all the anti-virus software in the world, "Pooter" as I affectionately call her, bit the bullet last night. I'm in the cyber cafe right now just checking in, but oh woe is me, I am mourning my baby. Of course, it had to happen right when I was putting finishing touches on the exam that took me hours to create that I needed this morning for my kid's class. All the time I spent making it personal and creative, with pictures, a reading comprehension exercise that was about everyone in the class, fun questions to make them think, kabooie. I had to cut and paste some old boring exams together to make sure they had something this morning, but I am truly bummed they won't see my masterpiece. And never mind checking emails, blogs, forums, news, these are just a few of my favourite things that I won't be seeing for a while.
Sooo, Hubby says it will take him a day or two to reformat the hard drive. If that doesn't work, we are up the creek without a paddle for a while, there is no budget for "Pooter2". Hang in with me, hopefully I'll be back to my normal, computer addicted self soon, happily blogging away and answering your oh so important emails.
Until then, just a reminder, back up your important documents and don't forget to run your anti-virus software!
