My computer is currently entirely foobar. We have to erase the hard drive and reformat and all that lovely stuff. I'm borrowing Shannon's Mac (with an incredibly annoying keyboard) right now to type this.

I currently have no access to anything computer-related, except for the brief moments I get on the web here on Shannon's computer. I can't check my email. Can't do anything. Right now, all my computer is doing is fighting me tooth and nail.

So wish me luck. And if you've tried to get a hold of me recently and I'm not answering your email, this is why. Me email is somewhere on erzo (our home machine), but I can't access it until my computer decides to play nice.

I know a computer shouldn't have the power to upset me so much, but life just kind of sucks right now.

Why shouldn't it? For me, my computer is my connection to a lot of swell people, my diary, my notebooks, and several technical manuals, all rolled up into one. It's darn important to me.

I think that in this time and culture our computers are a huge piece of our links to the world and our connections with ourselves; I don't know anyone who takes email cutoff with real equanimity.

Meanwhile, I did send you an email about getting together; if you want to follow up, call me at work (I think you have that number) or call Alan and me on either cell phone.

Hugs!

It must be an epidemic. I know I was quite damn pissed when I got home Sunday to a non-cooperative computer and had to do the same... erase/reformat/recover. Ugh!
