Computer Crash!!!

It's worse than detox.  It's worse than a bad 12 step class.  You know it...internet/email withdrawals.  Late last night, our computer crashed.  A friend is going to take a look at it & see if they can figure out what the problem is, but ultimately we can't afford to pay much of anything to get it repaired, so we may be without a computer short term.  I am desperately hoping that our hard drive is not fried.  That would mean TONS of pictures, lots of my school stuff & so much more....is GONE.  Please say a prayer that it's nothing serious & can be fixed.  Otherwise, I'll be crying on the corner, holding out a cup for computer repair donations.  LOL

For now, I'll come to Larry's office 1-2x/week & do a quick email check.  (That's where I am now.)

If you need us, give us a call or email Larry at work.  He has his computer/internet access there, and can relay messages to me.

 Sorry to find out it WAS the hard drive, but it is not as expensive and you had feared.  With any luck, you'll be back online in a few days.  In the meantime, just take a deep breath....focus.          Mom

Oh no, Liz! I feel for ya, that's for sure! I hope your friend can get it fixed for ya! I wondered where you were! :)

When I had the computer virus, I took my computer to Staples & they only charged $69 to back up everything off my hard drive, remove the virus & reformat my computer. I thought that was pretty good & worth the $$ to recover my files!!!

Love, Alyssa
