"A Terrible Vista to Behold!"

By       (Page 1 of 4 pages)   No comments

Alas and Alack...What To Do in This 'brave' new world?


From a very good and trusted friend I just heard that he has crashed his computer and is counting on a warranty from the retailer - now going out of business. Yes, Circuit City, and, I am told, also Best Buy, seem not long for this world.

My good techy friend has always been more adept at all computer matters than I have. But it seems that even he these days is scratching his head and contemplating where to go from here...

Oh yes, I've had sage advice all along the way. My nephew and godson, Michael, works as a LAN specialist for a major firm in entertainment on the west coast.

But,in the end, I'm left with little recourse but instruction by trial and error. Ah, well...

It's not like I haven't been here before!

When Windows 3.0 came out, I had someone who could even delve into DOS to coach me in what to do to save my computer.

Save it?

Is that all that is left to the end-service consumers like myself?

Afraid so, buddy - or sissy.

That's how it is - how it's come down in the end!

I've seen articles I've written published, almost miraculously, in South America in Brazilian Portuguese and Argentinian, Castellano Spanish.

That was a really BIG thrill.

But now I'm more concerned with brass tacks.

If my helpers can't solve their own technical problems, then how shall I, computer dilettante that I am, ever finally get to the point that everything is up and running?
