The Blue Screen of Death

My computer crashed hard yesterday morning. Normally a simple restart is enough to get it working again, but this time I got a message saying something like "no bootable device." Our computer service people didn't get to it yesterday, so for the first time in recent memory I am facing a computer-free weekend--except, that is, for brief snatches on t's computer.

I am looking forward to it actually. Without the distraction of the internet I hope to get more reading done than I otherwise would. Maybe I will also have time for some philosophical reflections on what in the world I think I'm doing and why it matters.

I assume, of course, that the computer people will be able to recover my data. This apocalyptic scenario holds no attraction.

Oh dear! Hope you can recover the stuff you need.

I live in fear of that ever happening to me--and I don't WRITE stuff.
