The New Computer Comes Today

My computer croaked on Saturday and I do mean croaked.  I spent a wonderful two hours with a tech support person in India (It still astounds me that there are no Americans who can do tech support, but that's a whole different story.  Actually it's more like a rant.) only to find that the motherboard, whatever that is, had, as they say, bought the farm.  I hadn't backed up my most recent job, so that meant a frantic phone call to the client, explaining why there shots are going to be late, and hours and hours of work redoing what I had already done.

So, I'm now the proud owner of a new computer which I was assured would come today. And to make it even more fun, the new computer has Windows 7 and all of my software, including Photoshop is for Windows Vista. I was planning on buying Photoshop CS5, just not at the same time as new machine.

Yeah it's here and I going to set it up.


  1. Oy, good luck with the set-up, file transition, etc.

  2. My desk top computer took the big dirt nap a while ago. I now have 2 laptops and it seems to be a good idea since they have issues alot. At least you will be up again soon!

  3. Thank you guys. You are the best.
