Rest in Peace Old Computer

For a while now our old home computer had been feeling "ill". Last Friday night it did the computer equivalent of gasping for breath and whispering in a weak and tragic voice "I just can't go on any longer..." Then it died. It was only 4 years old, but that is about a bazillion in computer years it would seem. The guy at the computer store on Saturday was impressed that it had lasted so long. (Please no comments about the brief mourning period. I know that I'm crass.)
I will miss the old computer. I miss its keyboard already. The new one is flatter and smaller... I miss my bookmarks. We didn't even have time to try and export them anywhere. However, between a "well" computer and the completion of Fiscal Year End 08-09, I hope that I will get to spend a little more time blogging. I've been missing it!
Oh - and for those of you who have asked about details on my pink hoodie, try this Ravelry link. I still can't figure out where I put the pattern book. Somewher safe, I'm sure.

So once the bookmarks are back...I hope you'll enjoy the new computer. M just gave me an early birthday present. This is the first comment I'm leaving from my new laptop. =0)

I hate adjusting to a new computer. Good luck with that!

I just had to replace my old laptop. My husband could smell it "burning" one night and just left it to smolder. Big suprise - the next morning it was a very large, expensice paperweight.

I want a new computer, but mine is fine although I've had it as long as Norah has been alive - with a mild crashing in there (okay total rebuild required).
Am thinking laptop next time around...
