Computer cursed

Holy crap Billy Bob.....now ya went an done it.

Ya see it's like this....my piece of crap HP laptop is bit'n da dust. That little fan is maki'n all kind of weird noises and won't quit do'n it. Then....when I boot up the laptop, the damn thing is missing a file. Then Yahoo messenger don't work no more. I don't know how to take it apart and I don't have any canned air to blow it out. Old Billy Bob is stuck between a rock and a hard place. So, I broke out the spare laptop and here I are. 

Internet connection still sucks even with an antenna stuck out the winder. But I did notice the weather may be the problem. Ya see, we had a freak'n cold front come through here. It's all hazy about where I think the "tower" is at, but really I have no freak'n idea where it's at. The other day, before the storm, I had a good signal. But now it sucks.

Holy crap it was cold this morning. Somewhere's in the 30's outside.....and not much over that inside. Ya see, I don't run a heater at night. No sense in wast'n a bunch of propane when I'm gonna be wrapped up in a pile of covers all night long. I stayed under them covers till I could'n take it no more. Got up and pee'd, turned on Mr Heater full blast and made me a pot of coffee. 

About the Thanksgiving dinner. All the foods were wonderful, probably better than last year. But, sit'n outside eat'n up a big plate of food in the cold with the wind blow'n didn't cut it. It were bout 58 degs and 15 mile a hour winds. So after I finish my plate, I head to "da house" where it was warm. That's when Sadie Mae got lost. Ya see, she was sit'n under my chair protect'n me from all the big dogs run'n round. Apparently she was chas'n some big dog down the street when I left. When she come back, I was gone. I call her a couple times, but no Sadie. Finally here she come. Tail a wag'n and eyes a glow....she fount her daddy. 

Think'n come Monday I'm gonna go off to town and do some shop'n. You know....Walmart. Gotta get me some them zip drive thingys to copy all my files to off that piece of crap HP computer. Then I'm gonna restore it to day one and start all over. In the mean time, I'm gonna fire up my big ol' air compressor and blow that thing out goooood. If the fan still screams....don't know what I gonna do. Buy a new one????


  1. I keep telling folks this, but buy a netbook for around $300 and you have a backup laptop. Best Buy has 1 Terabyte usb external hard drives for $87 or so, free shipping. See if Walmart will match that.

  2. Yea, turn loose of some of your millions, you ole Scrooge and get ya a new one! IF that air compressor don't cure it that is. -)

  3. Yea BB, sounds like that old puter needs blowed out. If that don't work just blow it up(grin) and get a new one. I have a couple of external hard drives, the one for the lap top reminds you to plug it in and back up, my other one don't, since I have multiple hard drives in my main computer, I have to back up my files manually. I never back up program files, they can always be re-installed if'n you can find the disc.

  4. Here it is 62 degrees and bright sun in Rockport. After this bad weather it is supposed to get nice tomorrow.

  5. 80's here, with the air conditioners going 24 hrs it is nice inside. Then again, I don't go outside here much. The evenings on post are nice, always a breeze in the palm trees.

  6. Sounds like your fan is going out on your computer. The fan will need to be replaced ASAP. Back up your files as soon as possible. The fan keeps the motherboard cool and if the fan quits the motherboard will get hot and you know what happens when the motherboard gets hot.......... :(

  7. A person necessarily help to make severely posts I might state.

  9. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm
    thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

  10. Hello, Neat post. There's a problem along with your website in web explorer, may check this? IE still is the market leader and a good section of other people will omit your wonderful writing because of this problem.
