Computer issues
« on: June 27, 2012, 04:12:53 PM »
Hi everybody,

I just wanted to apologize for my recent downtime. I had/have some issues with my computer that I'm trying to fix.
I've pretty much isolated the problem now (unfortunately it seems to be a hardware defect) and hope to have it fixed at the weekend.
Thanks for your patience!

Jonas
Best regards,
Jonas

Few things in life more frustrating. Glad you're closing in on the solution.

Jonas,

Been there recently myself. Cost me a new machine, new printer and some new software. Hope you get out with less cost.

I'm about to have to turn my Intel MacPro over to my son for a week of rehab.  Need more ram, more disk space and just a general refresh.  I can't complain, because she's been a work horse for nearly 6 years, with very little difficulty.  But not having her here is going to be very, very traumatic.  Hubby's PC will work for getting on the internet, but I won't have Photoshop or any of the software that I normally use.  Withdrawal will be severe. No. 1 son promises I'll be very happy with more ram and much more disk space.  I don't doubt that!  However, there may be some thumb sucking, or I may have to resort to a binkie.

If worse comes to worst, I could drag out the ancient G3 and see if she still works.  That probably trumps a binkie.

Finally I got my PC back from repair and repaired what the repair had broken  :crazy:
That means I'm finally back :)
Thank you all for your patience and support  :hug:

Jonas, it's great to have you back! I think maybe you need a different repair man?

Margie, I'm guessing a different repair man would indeed be a good idea :)
Only problem is that my configuration is pretty special (e.g. I've encrypted most of my disks), so I'm not sure others would necessarily do a better job ;).

Thanks all, it's great to finally be back on board  :loveit:!
Best regards,
Jonas
