My computer has finally emerged from its slumber, timidly, yet triumphantly, primed to reenter the world of computational competence.
Not having a computer put on hold many other aspects of my home life, such as cleaning, opening mail, paying taxes, balancing checkbook, etc etc. After getting my computer back, I proceeded to clear off my desk and found several items supposedly lost…Unfortunately, the IQ of my wireless network has dropped ten-fold, and it delights in slowness and kicking me off.
Lessons learned: 1) Always unplug computer at night.
2) "No-post" is bad.
3) I got more sleep when I didn't have a computer.
4) How to take apart a motherboard and put it back together!
