Back online (not that I was ever really off)

The new computer is on my desk. Most of the software is installed. I saved most of my files.

I’m not sure I like this shiny silver keyboard. The clicking it makes bores into my skull slightly. Given that I’m a writer and tend to spend a good deal of time typing, that may not be a good thing. But maybe the plastic cling wrap I’ll be putting over the keyboard will muffle it.

I’m thirsty. But I’m afraid to drink from the bottle of water on the desk. Ah, it’ll be OK, right? Mmmm….that was a good $700 drink.  Just kidding. It was OK. This time.

So, my advice from this experience is:

  • Back up your files (and buy a bigger backup drive if you have to – note to self about that one).
  • Cover your keyboard with something non-porous, yet transparent. The only roll of Saran wrap we have is green, but I’ll still give it a try.
  • Keep extra computers in the house. Between me and Kevin we still have 3 working computers. (They are under high security at all times, don’t even think about it!)

That’s pretty much all the advice I have. This keyboard key squeaking might seriously get to me, though. At least I can run iTunes now to drown it out.

  3. Dana – Thanks for leaving a comment. I swear I’m going to update the blog more. Really. I mean it this time. 🙂

    Rory – Thanks. I don’t remember ever NOT writing. We wrote a lot in school and I always enjoyed it. I started writing my autobiography when I was 11 or 12. Never finished it (and I only had 11 years to write about then!). I’ve started a few novels, truthfully. Started being the operative term. 😉
