Have Computer ... Sort Of!!

Spike - with white frame
I collected my computer a couple of days ago before the shop closed for ... (however long)

However as it is an intermittent fault they hadn't been able to sort it out, but think it's something to do with the fan.  So I can only use it for short times here & there.  Still I can keep in touch with people so that's the main thing ... but may not be around much

Hope you are all keeping safe.  I am still off work after the virus that floored me at Christmas ... so the rest of the world is worried about Corona ... I am still recovering from the previous one!  Much of Exeter is "behaving" and keeping off the streets, but there are still people around who think they are off work/school for a holiday.

I actually took Jiffy to have a haircut today ... vetinary care is still happening, and for an almost 14 year old dog who has had a skin problem for 10 years  I felt it needed to go ahead.  While he was being pampered I did some shopping, and then had my walk (in a cemetery), and will post photos when I can upload them.  Poor Jiffy has slept since we got home ... it's what he does a lot of the time anyway.

So now for the next few days (or even more), other than short strolls with Jiffy I can stay in.

On one point of good news it was announced that we get 2 Dresden books this year ... after such a long wait, that is brilliant news.

Everyone keep safe xx

I'm so glad to see you here! I was just beginning to get caught up when you posted about your computer going down. I was thinking about you this morning and praying you'll be safe from this virus, especially since you're still recuperating from your previous bug. Hope you and Jiffy can isolate as much as possible.

I've been working at home for the past week and Indiana's under a stay at home order now, so Irish and I are just staying in with the cats.

Stay safe!

Aw - thanks

I have another week signed off work, and then I need to decide what to do for the best. I am getting better, but thought I was a month ago and it didn't work out

Hope that you manage to stay safe x

I hope the computer keeps limping along!

So far, so good ... but I will admit I am not risking pushing it

Is that, two Dresden Audiobooks? Or just the print?

I don't know ... but presume both. I buy the books (and have a friend who will send me the audio ... shhhhhh)

I am really glad that you have your computer back, even if it is a bit iffy. It is not so much our means of communication of choice as of necessity these days.

Is it a laptop? I had one that overheated and crashed regularly at one time and S2C got me a laptop tray with cooling fans built in - it really did help.

I am sending love to both you and Jiffy.

Aw - thank you ... Hope all is well with you.

I have an oldish desktop ... so I think it runs OK for a bit, and then peters out. I suppose that when I (eventually) get back to work I need to buy a new one ... trouble is my Kindle is also getting old. Pity I don't do the lottery!!
