Today Grinnygranny's computer went the ominous beep beep beep. There's no way all three of us can use one computer, so we went out to buy a new one. I'm using it now. A rather nice one with a 17" screen which I'll have to get used to, but it's nice. Now I just have to learn Windows 7.
When we got home Ginnygranny's computer came back to life. It somehow corrected the problem and is working. We'll take it in for a tune up next week just to make sure it's good and fixed.
This will let Auntypesty have my old one once I get stuff moved over.
Didn't need the added expense right now, but it is nice to have a computer that is twice as fast as the other one.
