Computer Glitch

It's just as well I won't need my computer for the next week or so, as for the last week it has been a little on the tempramental side.  The main problem is that some of the keys keep sticking and I just can't use them.  Even blowing out the dirt and dust and jiggling my finger on the key does no good anymore and I fear that it might have had it's day.  I've had it a few years, 3 or 4 to be exact, which doesn't sound long actually when it's written down.  It's making me think it is perhaps 'inbuilt obsolescence' at work, which is particularly apt considering my post yesterday.  Or maybe I've just worn them out.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that the full stop is one of the keys not working, I'm not actually able to access much at all on my computer, as I can't put the essential dot in any website address, which has frankly rendered it useless for the time being.  At times like this I am grateful for my phone which now thankfully has internet access, so that I can at least continue to blog read.

As a consequence of the above, I am having to use OH's laptop when I can, which is very nice and all that, but just not my trusty (or not so trusty) old machine, whose keys are so familiar and comfortable to me.  On this new machine, I'm making lots of typing errors and having to constantly correct them as it has a larger keyboard, which I'm finding a bit frustrating.  I wonder if I give my little machine a holiday too,  it will come back refreshed and working properly once again.  I do hope so.  If you don't hear from me for a while, chances are I'm probably lost in the annals of an electrical store somewhere, shopping for my next machine.


  1. Here's hoping your computer will 'get well soon'.

    PS Here are a few full stops for you.
