This Might Be A Disease

I think I may have caught Denise's computer bug. She got a new one. I just got a new/use one. I needed one because I always use the work computer and it is slow and not mine. I wanted one that was mine. So, I went up to the local pawn shop and bought this one. I love it! $275.00 out the door and it is wonderful. A Gateway laptop w/DVD w/burner, Windows XP,full Micorosft Office package and it is wireless. It has a 17" screen which is also great because my ass is about blind.

The computer does not appear to have been used very much. I have done all my updates, gotten all my important links in my favorites, and scanned for possible viruses. All is well.

If anybody else gets a new computer I will officially pronounce this trend a disease.

Congratulations on having your own computer!! Sounds like you got a good deal, Lynn.
We have a desktop in our home office, and the laptop is always propped open on the bed.
I'm amazed at myself for the amount of time I'm on the computer. Way back when, I swore I had no interest.Just like swearing I didn't want a cell phone.Now I have both and don't know what I would do without them.

I was the same way--never thought I would own a computer or a cell phone. This is my second computer but it has been a long time since I had my own. I feel whole again.

Dont know what I would do without either of my gadgets either. I know how you feel Lynn, It's just nice to be connected to my peeps again. I can also look for a jobe etc. I hope that the computer geek can fix the problem though.
