Well the computer people have tried but apparently my computer has a terminal illness. I am not a techie but it wasn’t hard to figure out that a blown mother board is a very bad thing. 😦 They are getting as much of my stuff as I can remember to ask them to get off the computer and I am off this morning to buy a new destop. Exciting in a way but all of the “stuff” I had saved is probably lost to the whims of a old by technie standards computer. I was told once 2 years is a good life for a computer so 5 must be like the dear old dog. I guess nothing lasts forever.
