Well the computer went down again. I'm now stuck having to do all my blogposts on iPad. Now I am computer-less till July 20. And my younger son got his ears chewed off. He was on a on line game site when he should not have been.
Unfortunately now I am going to have to spend almost $1000 to put all programs that I need to put on the computer to utilize the new computer for photography.
Also I am not happy with London Drugs computer department for the computer that I currently have that went down. I have taken that computer in quite a number of times to try to find out why that computer is freezing unfortunately the computer technician at London Drugs cannot seem to figure out why. Needless to say I am not impressed.
Plus on top of the computer going down; I'm finding that I lost all the images that I placed on the hard drive which I had not managed to back up onto CD ROM or DVD ROM. Let's face it; it sucks.
Anyhow, considering all that is happened so far; it will be nice to finally get a computer that won't freeze every 25 minutes when it feels like it doesn't want to work anymore.
I am not a computer technician. When something goes wrong with the computer I cannot fix it. Put it plainly if the computer goes down I'm screwed. I will definitely be transferring a lot of files off the old damaged hard drive and hopefully I can recover most of the files that I have but I'm not holding my breath.
Eventually I had hoped to replace the computer; however it seems that this has accelerated the timeframe and has majorly screwed up our finances for the short-term.
As it stands I will have to replace the computer on 20th of July.
Replacement cost of computer $485.00
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 $199.99
File transfer cost $175 CD ROM/DVD ROM
Windows 8.1(full) $119.99
Total cost $979.98
This is an expensive amount of money spent just because somebody did not listen to his father and went on a game site he wasn't allowed to go on and ultimately corrupted the computer to the point where it cannot be used again.
Needless to say; Dad is pretty pissed off.
