I had some major computer problems on Christmas night, as my brother-in-law and myself tried to find a way for me to get my new iPod Nano going. But it turns out that my computer, which I got in 2002, doesn't have the capacity to handle it. We tried a number ways to do it, but it just wouldn't work.
I attempted to reverse the changes we made late last night, as they were playing havoc with my computer. But my computer basically went kaput trying to do it. I take it as a sign: time to get a new computer.
I'll be shopping for one over the next few days, so I may not be posting much over the next week or so. I'm currently writing this at an Internet cafe not far from my house, and I'll be using that and the ones at Professor Thom's until I get my new one. It's a pain, but I don't have a better alternative right now.
I got seven years out of my computer. Can't really complain, and I think I got my money's worth.
