And where is that Paul; well it’s located at Purok 4 Roosevelt Dinalupihan Bataan and it’s a permanent location. I know because that’s where my computer is. My dongle from globe is working fine. I can get on Lip. And Facebook without a hitch, I can’t download free music anymore as the courts shut down the site that I knew about, but of course never used. I can send and receive e-mails with impunity. So, what is the big deal? What is wrong with my computer? Hell I don’t know, I just explained everything I know about it.
I was downloading music and when I tried to store it on my External One Terra Byte Hard Drive; my computer informed me it was not there. So I looked down to see if someone had stolen it, or maybe I’d misplaced it, but there it was light flashing and looking shiny and nice. Well, I guess old Windows isn’t as smart as it thinks it is. I attempted to open it again. The same warning popped up again, Paul; the damn thing is not there, stop pushing the button! Give it a rest will ya’.
I’m not in panic mode yet, my six thousand Albums are still there, oh, and by all that’s holy I hope they are. I shut off the Puter and started it again and what to my wondering eyes do appear but my H drive and all my music. I sure pulled the wool over windows eyes!
The very next morning, the music is gone again and never returned no matter what I did. I’m in full panic mode now and grabbed my cell phone and called my Puter Guy “Marlon the Magnificent” Marlon said; “I’ll be the Saturday afternoon.” Then Sunday afternoon, and of course Monday, Tuesday also, then I receive a FaceBook msg. stating: “if you have time going to town, can you bring your One TERRA external drive with you. I’m planning to make a back-up first before fixing it to make sure all files are saved. Just please let me know when are you coming so I can give you instructions where to find me. I’ll be waiting for your call.”
Okay I did clean up all the texting slang so you and I both could read it, I had my Son-in-law Cecil translate it for me, then I’m informed that Cecil also knows Marlon and as he was taking Ymir Thea to the OB/GYN Clinic the same day using my car, that he would take it to town for me. What a guy! But I really didn’t want to go to town anyway it worked out well for both of us.
So it’s now Saturday morning and I must submit this to Fearless Leader Bob, but I have no resolution to my problem, No answer from Marlon the Magnificent my ace Puter guy. My Puter is acting up in very strange ways. But my mood is strangely optimistic and I’m certain that all will be back to normal soon. Oh, did I forget to mention my friend Tommy is home and also has a one terra byte external hard drive that mirrors mine exactly. I’m his back up and he is mine. We had planned on something like this happening years ago, see, it is good to share!
So today I’ll go to lunch, and have a cocktail or three and not worry a wit about music, computers or any such thing like that, and the reason is simple; “prior planning prevents Piss Poor performance” (The six “P” theory) that I learned in the U.S. Navy, low those many years ago.
Now I have something to bore you with next week!
