Duncan and I are sharing the house now with three (count them, three) computers -- none of which are worth the plastic they were made from. There's the Toshiba laptop, which has just betrayed us by wearing out (the thing has bulbous blisters on its bottom from intense, self-generated heat); there's the ancient Dell desktop we dragged in from the shed and were semi-successful in resurrecting; and, third, there's the new black Dell desktop, which just arrived yesterday in the mail. Despite damaging my left ear waiting on hold from 8 am to one for techies to give us the time of day (we finally got short snatches of time from three of these Golden godlets), we were unable to get "Blackie" totally up and running.
Duncan and I both hope you had better days than we did.
