Well, here I am back at the library’s computer lab. To the left of me is a terrorist trying to figure out how to construct a bomb, and to the right of me is someone’s younger brother listening to something on his headphones. No ear-buds here. His are the unwieldy kind that look like he’s strapped ramekins to his head. Perhaps they are ramekins. I’m too scared to get a really good look.
My computer is back in the hospital. Apparently little Toshiba’s fan replacement is doing some kind of host vs. graft thing. That, or Mr. UPS drop-kicked it a few times before delivering it to Allied Technologies. The fan they had installed clicks when I turn my computer on. It sounds like my laptop is sending out a mating call to crickets everywhere. At least Allied is replacing the defective fan free of charge since I’m still under their 30-day warranty.
On my last blog I had announced that I will be putting up a new Web site. It wasn’t an obvious announcement. I had inserted it at the end of my blog in bold letters.
However, this is what is going on . . . With the invaluable help of Val, the Computer Whisperer, and Sarah, his wife, I am getting off of this .com site and moving the whole thing over to .net. ‘Invaluable help’ – who am I kidding? Val and Sarah are doing ALL of the work pro bono. Because they are really special (and they probably didn’t know what they were letting themselves in for). And I am about as solvent as sand. I would sell one of my kidneys to pay them a decent fee, except I’m fairly certain my organs aren’t working properly any more. I would probably score only enough money on the donor market to buy Val a new mouse pad.
The new site will be a vast improvement over this site. The blogs will be the same, but a few fun surprises will have been added for the Readers.
I am now trying to come up with a new name for the site . . . something other than ‘Mind Droppings’. That name was a spur of the moment creation. I also had no idea that it is being used by someone else on another part of the planet. Not that anyone could confuse our sites. It’s just that he came up with it first.
Until then . . .
COMING SOON! TheaPhipps.net
