My computer, a Lenovo Yoga, died abruptly. To be more precise, the latest Windows 10 update killed it. First came the announcement that Win10 would no longer be supported, but an update was available. Goody. After the usual shutdown and restart sequence, it stayed off.
Then I turned it on manually, at which point large white text on a dark screen (typical safety mode), declared, ” Removing the files which were uploaded.”
And then my computer died.
Virus? Bad luck? !?%&@!!?!! Incompetent company?
I don’t know. And I no longer care.
I still have the persnickety laptop that the dead one replaced, albeit without Internet access. The old version of Office allows me to work on my novel, which was saved – hurrah!
To blog, I’m relying on a crack-screened, no-longer-updating iPad that connects to my WiFi and my wireless printer. I can’t update the blog design (sorry), but the writing and reader features work just fine. Someone suggested I try blogging with a phone, but the laser-beams from my eyes incinerated him. Or maybe it was just the fire I feel in my eyes after staring at a tiny screen too long.
I will see how well (and long) this cobbled-together system works.
