I have had this computer for such a long time. In fact... it's not the same computer it was when I bought it!
Oh,the outside is the same ol' green machine.(you know I love green) But the insides have been replaced, upgraded, improved-- ripped out and replaced again.
As my brother (and PC- Go- to- Guy) is fond of quoting
...and they used to say on the old 'Six Million Dollar Man ' series...
(old computer picture...nothing much has changed on the outside)
Gentlemen, we can rebuild
him IT . We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man COMPUTER. Steve Austin THE GREEN MACHINE will be that man COMPUTER. Better than he IT was before. Better, stronger, faster.
My brother came out today and did just that...AND NOW... It's better, stronger and faster.
YES! while the world of personal computers are experiencing what is WINDOWS 8...I am happy and OH SO GRATEFUL sitting here, typing away on my faithful (and green) computer with newly installed Windows 7 ultimate!
(there was an added bonus too-- he hooked up a wireless router for me!)
That is going to make a lot of people happy that come here to visit (ie: my kids! and more importantly THE HONEY)
Apparently, if you have a smart phone, you can get on the internet with Wi-fi and not use your data plan and SAVE MONEY...WHO KNEW?
But even more so than that... I was glad to get to spend time with my brother...while he worked his magic on MY PC!
Of course we had to make a run to town for some computer gear... and some Cheeseburgers-- because all that rebuilding a BETTER, STRONGER, FASTER computer makes a person hungry!
I'll be spending the next few weeks I'm sure...learning the ins and outs of this new system!
** Thanks for the mention and hi-light Claudia! :)
*************Thinking about what someone else said on their blog-- regarding the recent events on the East Coast...So many are doing without right now. These are some of my thoughts.
I don't want to take anything or ANYONE for granted. I don't want to be ungrateful for one breath taking moment. I certainly don't want to be petty. While happy to have my computer--my time with my family today and BEING CONNECTED to them was AND IS what was cherished the most. ***************
Please remember to pray for those out East who have lost so much.
Oh give thanks to the LORD for He is good;
His loving kindness is everlasting.
