It may not be safe to live here.
First, my socks are destroying my dpns.
And one of my children seems to have it in for keyboards.
Ages ago, she used a Sony laptop. Over time, the poor thing took a few hits. Somewhere in our house is a space bar ...
Let's take a closer look ....
Yep... no space bar. And no 8 key either.
When her Grandpa gave her a refurbished laptop for her birthday last year, she handed this one down ... so the 8 key might have been someone else's fault.
But... that computer also suffered ..
Now, she may have had some reason to be frustrated with the old computer's slowness, and crankiness, but still,
This past week, the crankiness and slowness revealed its cause: hard drive failure.
(and, this was the third such bricklike stunt since the refurbed computer came into her life.)
The economy, and the retail worlds eagerness to provide zero interest credit to get us to spend money made it possbile for me to fix both the brickiness and the keyboard failures. Better still, we have some familial assistance in the form of early Holiday Presents..
Teen happiness abounds.
