  • It just so happens that the home computer had a glitch this week wherein the USB ports stopped working for no apparent reason. And since the keyboard and mouse plug into USB (and there are no PS/2 ports anymore), that meant no computer access for the wife and kids. I too am cursed with having a spouse who knows almost nothing about computers, so I was forced to troubleshoot it from approximately 1000 miles away. It was amazing to me how important it was for her to get back online. It was also amazing how many times she reassured me that she "didn't do anything" to cause the problem to begin with.

    LOL..........Do you remember that during the pioneer days, one of the hardest withdrawal the pioneers faced was the withdrawal from sugar? We don't absolutely need sugar, we get carbs from many sources; but once we have got used to having it, we sure miss it when it's gone.

    Our computers are like that. We do so much with them that we miss them when they are gone. Which is why I keep a spare on hand........LOL!
