My kids have been dying this past week cause the computer that I share with them has caught some kid of bug and refused to boot up. I kept getting what my techie neighbor refers to as BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Anyway, he took my tower over to his house, worked some magic on it (I guess he keeps his magic wand at his house cause he was unable to fix it at ours) and now it is back to being functional. The kids still cannot use it cause I have to reload a bunch of programs and haven't had any time to do that yet. We just got it back Sunday evening and I had to work yesterday and then go visit my parents. My dad is not doing well and I wanted to be sure to see him while I could. Anyway, it is driving the kids crazy (especially DD16) but hopefully I will have some time this week to work on it. That is, between painting two bedrooms which I am also trying to do. The good thing about all of this is that the computer could be fixed and that my techie neighbor works for very cheap. As in, for chocolate chip cookies! I bake them, he eats them. His wife is a friend and does not really like to bake so I send over enough for the whole family and it works out well for both sides.
