AAAAH - It's Baaaaaaaaccckkkk!
For those of you who do not know, basically my computer died last month taking all my files and emails with it. "Lucifer" was laid to rest in cyber hell.
If you are dying to know what happened, read my past posts:
Well, now Lucifer is back!
Yes, you got it. My computer will not die. It has been revived.
Just to taunt me. Just to rub it in my face.
Don't ask me how.
Evidently, I bought the extended warranty when I got Lucifer (like I knew he would be a pain in my hard drive. So Best Buys had to either fix it or replace it.
I was thinking "Surely they will replace it. I mean the thing was smoking and making cranking noises!"
They replaced the motherboard and harddrive and returned it to me. Lapskin and all.
"Great!" you say?
No, because I still lost everything! Nothing was recovered.Now Lucifer is back to haunt me and Munster (my 10 year old computer) is tired people and I refuse to buy another computer until I get an agent or book deal!
I hate that I need Lucifer. I hate that I can't let a bad thing go. he isn't good for me - I know - but he's all I have.
For now, it's time to suck it up. To kiss Lucifer's hard drive until I don't need him any longer.
Someday, I will get a new computer and spend more quality time (not quantity time) with it so we can be happy together making books.
Someday, I will do the Happy Computer Dance.
