A Blogger Interrupted!

Due to unforeseen technical difficulties; my hard drive died in my PC, my blogging output will be somewhat reduced until I get it sorted...

New hard drive has been ordered and delivered, and a new disk for Win7 sourced, to finally update my XP...

And whilst I have got the hard drive hooked up, and it appears to be working, I can't get Win7 to load, so will have to wait till a friendly tech-savvy IT neighbor pops round when he has a free moment, to assist...

Many years ago I once tried to show my father how to program the VHS video recorder... after many attempts I gave up... His reply to my frustration at the time was that, unless he could 'adjust it with a shovel', he wasn't interested...

Many years on I now find I am in the same boat, when it comes to all the tech stuff we have now, computers, Ipods , Ipads and smartfones... etc etc, all leave me bemused!

So hopefully I'll be back up and running in the not too distant future!

In the meantime I'll continue to adjust things with my paintbrush!

Thanks for your patience and understanding.


  1. Bummer. :(

    Although I don't recommend using a shovel. A hammer with a rubber handle to protect you from getting electrocuted. That's the tried and true weapon of choice among the technical community.

    Also the rubber chicken is popular in case we have to resort to voodoo.

  2. Cover in in spray foam / grey paint and play games on it instead. You know you want to :-)

  3. Large Sledge hammer and safety glasses .. brings the most satisfaction. And Yes, I'm and IT geek and have actually used the Sledge hammer on some gear... was the best work day ever :-)

    1. I said something dumb hence the removal!

      I've spent the last two days trying to complete a questionnaire for a new job. Unfortunately I'm on an Apple Mac running a 7 year old operating system so I can't do it all you have my sympathy!
      Darn computers!

  5. Get a shovel Scott! I hate dealing with computers and the like when they don't work properly!

  6. Good luck Scott, there are quite a few of us that feel the same way about tech!

  7. I'm back! Woo Hoo!
    Let the blogging commence.

    Must admit the interlude was interesting - learnt how to use a smartfone - out of necessity!
