My faithful old red Dell finally gave up the ghost and I had to get a new one. With my electrical karma, it worked for about 2 weeks and just quit. I was on my way to Florida and I just didn't have time or energy to deal with it, so it stayed that way for 3 weeks. I also had a new Dell tablet which also stopped working, so I was left with my Kindle Fire for contact with the rest of the world.
It is not Dell's problem, it is my electrical Karma. For some reason, electrical things get out of kilter when they get around me. I just left it in the backpack until this morning and it worked just find. This also happens frequently. The little tablet hasn't started working, so I guess I will have to call Dell, but it actually has been kind of peaceful with no computer to be on half the day.
All this is to explain why I haven't been writing many reviews. It is too hard to type on the Kindle, so I'll have to catch up. When I look at the amount I have read, I found that the computer takes up a lot more of my time than I thought. I'll have to think about that. I haven't kept up with the news very well, and I can actually see some benefit to that also.
