In each of those three years, this one included, something has happened to my computer. First there was the complete crash on the Dell. It was still under warranty. But I lost a great deal of data that I had not backed up. Lesson learned.
Last year my MacBook Air caught a virus. I took it to a small shop for repair.
If you ever have computer problems anywhere near Venice, FL, Microtek Systems on South Tamiami Trail is the place to go. They are wonderful.
The guy told me he had never heard of a Mac with such a virus. He shook his head and said that the problems some people could have always surprised him.
This year I tried to get on my checkbook app. I use online banking but I also keep track of my checkbook spending on a separate app because I can make a mess of a checkbook register and the app can find errors better than I can. Well, when I tried to open the app, something else opened.
I took it immediately to the friendly folks at Microtek. I showed them what was happening. I got that same head shake and the same wonder about how I managed this particular problem. Haha.
But they fixed it easily and I was happy once again.
I do have to think, though, that there is something in the Florida air that my Vermont computers have an allergic reaction to each spring.
