Death of a Computer


Hi folks, I’ve been somewhat absent as you can see.  Sadly it wasn’t because my life took a new and interesting turn …… sigh …….  It was a case of computer meets coke with the fairly predictable outcome of computer meltdown.  As all unanticipated emergencies it came at a most inopportune time when lack of…

Not Missing Simply Buried
