Kerri's Progress Notes:
Back at it today. Had to finally give in and buy a new computer after a painstaking search. Wanted to upgrade, but had to stick with the same specs I currently have due to finances.
I really hate switching computers and I'm dreading Windows 8. Anyone else have it? Any tips or horror stories to share?
My old computer is hanging on by a thread. I've had to replace the battery, the power cord, and the DVD drive is shot. Not to mention that thing it is currently doing where it locks up or crashes on me about 4 times a day (big issue for a writer/editor).
I've consulted the professionals and they've all agreed--I burn out computers faster than the average user. Could be that thing where I have my computer up and running about 16-18 hours (sometimes more) a day. You think?
Will let you know how the transition goes...
