Enough already!!! (short rant)

The harddisk of my iMac died a week ago, so I felt lucky that at least I had a netbook until the PC situation was remedied...

It was dead this morning

So please stand back, ladies and gentlemen:

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCKKK!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HATE THIS!

Now I only have my iPod Touch (until Monday) and may even have to watch TV to get my news fix

I don't know how would I manage without my computers, so I completely understand how you feel.
But please don't watch TV, I'm pretty sure it burns brain cells! There really must be a warning sticker on it or something, like they do with cigarettes.

P.S. On the other hand I'm free without TV for about 10 years already and my brain cells are as dead as they can be, so in fact you never know...

Arghh, sorry to hear that Ea, I hope you solve that situation soon. Computer problems can be so frustrating. And goats, well, I'm not sure they are a solution - they smell so bad

Somebody has stolen my idea. Everytime there is a bug in my software and I can't solve it, or there is a deadline I can't meet, I dream of going somewhere in the mountains and grow sheep (ok, so it's not goats but sheep). I just use to imagine how is life there, with only the stars above me, contemplating the human nature, the univers and everything. And looking down from the top of the mountain I can see my house, for sure there is a nice warm fire in the fireplace, good healthy dinner later... Life can't get better than this
Or... I could build some electric sheep I guess...

That's funny the way you phrased it - I always say it as "I'm going to be a goat farmer"

If we pick a big enough mountain we can share, goats on one side sheep on the other!

Thanks guys. I'm glad I could sell the iMac and get enough to buy a new pc, but the netbook might be a loss and I could do without that right now.

And of course, now that I can't transfer books I've got this annoying urge to read books that are not already on my devices

Instead of taking to the mountains, I think I will find something really complicated to cook for dinner tomorrow. that should take my mind of things

Then I could start a dairy at the foot of the mountain and you could sell the milk to me

At least the sun shines for the first time in a week - and I get lots of opportunity to train typing on the ipod Touch. There's always a silver lining

With all the reading of Julia Child, this should not be difficult. Although if you ever invited me for dinner - and why should you do it - I would hope for something Danish.

Comfort thoughts for your digital minions.

I'm afraid I still wait for that revered bible of the home cooke - both first and second testament - and until then, I must struggle along

I love to feed people though, and Danish food as well; my stomach is an old-fashioned, comfort-food-loving patriot. There are certain dishes that one can only aim to do as well as one's aunts, mother, and grandmothers

I'm afraid comfort thoughts is not enough for most of my digital minions. At least one needs the attention of TV doctors and a crash cart. My dear netbook. It was nice of you to think of it though. My iPod says 'hello!' and thanks for the attention
