Computers are like cars...

Computers are like cars because they should always work and never cause a problem. So when they stop working they can render a person nearly helpless and make that person very ineffective!

On Wednesday, the power supply in my computer stopped working while I was away. My motherboard must have been fried at the same time. So I have been struggling to get my harddrive copied onto a new system for the last two days. It's a bit like moving. You know where everything was in your old house and now it's in a box somewhere. Stuff like clip art, jpegs and my "favorites" files are in that box called the hard drive and not where they used to be.

I have alot of catching up to do, especially since Italy plays their first "real" game since the World Cup. There is a new logo, some new players and a new coach so we'll have lots to talk about this weekend.

Hopefully later today or tomorrow I can begin making up for lost time this week and dig up some interesting things. Thanks for your patience and your continued interest in this site.

Forza Azzurri!

Oy, good luck with the computer woes! My hard drive crashed this summer, so I know how you feel!

Thankfully it was the motherboard not the hard drive so I was able to retrieve all of my stuff. But it is a pain regardless.

Phew! PAin, but not irremediable. Although even the harddrive problem was fixable. With a little hocus pocus, people who know more about computers retrieved teh stuff for me.
