I pushed the button to turn on this machine tonight while talking to my sister on the phone and Jai asked me, “what’s that noise? It sounds like grandpa’s 8mm film projector.”
What it is, is the sound of this machine dying. I suppose my next big purchase may be a little laptop. It might take a while because I quit using plastic a few years ago, or at least the credit type of plastic money. It’s like living life, “look ma, no hands!” At first, it is a little scary to go without a line of credit available with the slide of a card but after a while, it is totally okay. There are no after Christmas bills to roll in, no interest due for spending your own money, and people who spend cash tend to think twice about their purchases. I do more comparison shopping, take my time to decide. Even if I have the cash in my pocket or available via debit card or one of those pre-paid disposable logo cards, I tend to make wiser decisions.
I am curious about things like netbook and tablet PCs, like what exactly can you do with them? Can you blog? Upload photos? Scan stuff to it? Write stuff in WORD? Send stuff out to printers?
Perhaps I should start shopping now and ask a zillion questions before the shades come down on this PC.
Thank you for viewing my art today!
