RIP Femputer Purpleton 2003



This is awesome!! Spiderman reminds me of my brother….it makes me homesick :)

Yesterday I woke up before 4 a.m. this morning. I couldn't get back to sleep. It was as if I was forced to think about going home or staying here. By 5 a.m. I gave up on trying to sleep and I decided to articulate my thoughts in the form of a pros and cons list. I hasn't seemed to help.

I have sad news my computer dear old femputer has died and gone to heaven. I tried to use the restoration CD to restore it to factory settings, as it was suggested to help stop it from shutting down randomly, but it froze so I restarted my computer now my computer does not work. Oh wells it had to go eventually. I am just thankful I had everything backed up before my entire computer went kaputz. You know how they say that writers have their favourite typewriters, well this computer was my typewriter.

So now I work on my entire assignments on different computers….lamenting the death of my old metallic brick of junk. Sadly my novel may be on permanent hiatus now…that is if I can afford a new computer. I like having my space to write for some reason. I always have this hidden fear that people in the class will be looking over my shoulder watching what I am writing for some reason.

My next step is too. Take out the ram and hard drive as those can be saved and take my entire computer and punt it off the end of Mount Archer. The damned thing better go out with a bang.

P.S. I have till Decemberish, possibly March to stay :)
