Woo-hoo!! I'm back in business, my Ruby is alive!!
edit: I got a lot of comments on my computers' names, so I thought I'd make a general reply here . . .
If you saw my computer all lit up, you'd know why I call her "Ruby" . . . her front panel is trimmed with red, which lights up when she's turned on, and her side panel is transparent, and she has cool led lighting, which is, of course, red
My tablet's back panel is a metallic magenta color, she has a bright pink leather flip cover and even a raspberry pink stylus! Hence the name, "Rosey"
As for laptop . . . well, "Twitchy" is . . . twitchy
(also, fyi, in case you were curious, Hubby's pc has blue lights . . . he calls his "Frosty"! W H Y Y Y Y Y ? ! ? ! ? !
Sunday night,. I was online late, coloring a line art, and decided to turn in and post it the next day . . .
so I went to turn off Ruby, my beloved computer . . .
but when it turned it off, it made an ominous "pop!" . . .
and now it won't turn back on.
Hubby, aka my own personal Geek Squad, checked it out for me that night, and after a good cleaning and a little research, he figures it was the power supply, which, once I get one, he can easily replace.
I sure hope he's right, because I found an excellent deal at Amazon . com for a new one, but it will take "4 to 14 days" to get here . . .
so until then, I'm stuck using "Twitchy", my tiny little laptop.
Twitchy doesn't like to read the Facebook newsfeed
Twitchy refuses to play Facebook games (of which, I am an addict . . . I NEEDS MY CANDY CRACK!!!)
let me read my email . . . s l o w l y
like deviantArt (whew!)
Twitchy likes to color . . . like a 3 year old
(anybody who takes part in my chibi commish sale will still get the line art, but it probably won't get colored until Ruby gets fixed)
Now, fortunately for my addiction, I got my tablet, Rosey
to play Facebook games . . .
she just doesn't always connect to Facebook . . .
and that's about all she will do, she refuses to open any kind of web page, despite having 100% connection.
Oh! I just now got an email saying my order was shipped!
Maybe I'll get it closer to 4 days then 14!
