Rectify

Acrostic, Poetry, Technology

Salford 3rd September

Reduced to a second relic in the corner

Even the technician suggested it was past its best

Computer’s do have a shelf life – but

To others – all that was needed, was a bit of

Installation and dusting down

Fresh drivers and a spot of cleaner – soon back to its

Youthful side, particularly with a new CD-Rom Drive

The patient returns

Technology

People might be wondering where i’ve been the last few days.

It isn’t the fact i’ve fallen out with facebook or indeed, wordpress (NOOOO! đŸ™‚ ) – my Trusty HP laptop had some serious palpitations in the last 7 days.

As a result, it spent some time in the lab at PC World in Manchester

Managed to keep up via the Android tablet  (pictured) and phone on twitter, but decided to give my laptop a rest during this phase of writing.

The upside ? A much improved patient – not as groggy as the last few weeks

The downside…having to watch windows update install my operating system again (Arrgh!)

UPDATE: Sunday 8th May

The patient is back – in his usual spot.

Old Red (??? must stop calling it that – Old Silver will get jealous!!!) is back on the Desk , and Running Windows 10 – though I had to go through one lengthy process to get it there

There’s now a link to wordpress on my desktop (Nice touch)
