Day 222, Part 2: ...and now, nighttime...

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

I'm fighting with the computer again. It's winning of course - that's a given.

The past couple of days it's been getting slower and more sluggish and often refusing to load web pages at all. The 'net connection is fine - Himself is having no trouble with his computer - so I'm going to have to try a restore and see what that accomplishes. If anything. *sigh*

I received a wonderful email from a man who is a very distant 'twiglet' on my family tree. He happened across some information I've added recently and was surprised to find one of his family names popping up, so contacted me. He's my mother's age, so with time, distance, and even the age difference itself, we are VERY distantly related. But to me, it's another indication of just how amazing the internet is, when you consider that even thirty or forty years ago we might never have run across each other.

Which (ever the cynic here) takes me right back to 'The internet's a wonderful thing - WHEN it cooperates.'

Argh.

So Himself is going to mess with the machine and see if he can kick its memory circuits into gear. Or something like that. Me, I'm packing it in early. Hope I'm back tomorrow - guess it all depends on whether or not my computer decides to work.

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    YOu might have too much info saved onto your hard drive---hope you are saving your info to a disc or a flash drive instead of your computer---that will slow you down big time. How neat to meet a family member online that you did not know about.
