Yikes! Last night our computer had a major incident. It was booted up when I went outside to do the chores, and when I came back in, there was this faint strange smell. I didn't think too much about it until I came in where the computer is and then it was a strong strange smell. The light and fan were off, so I knew something was up. Nothing felt hot, but it wouldn't even come on, let alone boot up. So I'm at the library as we speak. I called the computer repair technician early this afternoon and am supposed to take it in to let them look at it in the morning. He said he could find out in a couple of days what the problem is and if it can be fixed or if we'll need to get a whole new setup. Is it just me, or is anyone else seeing dollar signs? He thought either way, he might be able to have it done in about a week. So I put an announcement up at the shop so everyone will know what's going on. As I said there, please go ahead and browse and buy if you find something you like. If I'm back at the library before then, I'll check the shop and try to fill any orders. Thanks for your patience. Hopefully, I'll talk to you again in a week or so.
