I AM GOING THROUGH WITHDRAWL

I am writing this from the library as I am computerless. My computer finally said "I have had enough". The hard drive was fine but it was old and I was running Windows 98 still. I brought my computer to the doctor but every time he fixed something, something else wasn't working. I was told for about $100 or so Windows 98 could be reinstalled but there would be no guarantee the computer would work for very long. Also, that would mean finding and putting in all the updates for Windows 98 over the past eight years which would take forever and with Microsoft no longer supporting this operating system I decided it wasn't worth it. Thus, I got a new computer system. If I had more time to think about what I was getting I may have chosen something else BUT I do think I got a good new system. I am having the techie doctor transfer all my documents, photos, favorites and what is on my desktop to the new computer for me. He is also checking to make sure my Cannon Printer will work with my Cannon scanner. Ever since I got the i560 Cannon printer my scanner won't work with it. Thus, I should have a new computer in the next few days. I am not only computer less but my desk also fell apart. Yesterday I got a new desk as an early holiday gift from a friend and it is now partly put together. I am getting the rest put together tomorrow (Tuesday). I will need it to put the "NEW" computer on. My place is such a mess now.
