Of course, I didn't! I wouldn't dream of taking my laptop, Schatzi, apart.
However, someone took his computer apart. It had crashed!
What would I do if my computer crashed? After a total meltdown, I would probably think that all is lost and that I must get a new computer. It probably never would have occurred to me that something complicated that breaks down can be fixed.
In the photo above, you are viewing the insides of Heaven Admin's faithful computer called One. When it crashed, Santhan was undaunted. He took it apart, and with a dry brush, dusted every part, re-assembled it, and now it works again as good as new.
One is working again! I had all the parts stripped out and lying across the table. Imagine no extra screws after I put One back together!
Can you imagine what HP would have charged me? Little successes like this by people all over the world is getting us our independence back! Now I must go surf in the Indian Ocean :)
Oh, yes, to get our independence back. To be self-reliant. What a great feeling.
Of course, it is beyond my understanding how a computer that stopped working and now fixed can still have all the information it had before. How do those little pieces hold on to their memory. Isn't that amazing?
Heaven Admin told me how to fix a technical problem of mine, and when I did it, and it worked, it felt so good.
The difficulty has been that, when I type, the immobilizer I wear that keeps my right arm stuck to me keeps touching the ornery touch pad. I would be typing in this blog, for instance, and then find myself switched to an email. Or I would have jumped to some program or option that I would never want. It was discombobulating to say the least.
Actually, amazing things would happen, amazing things that you could never make happen if you wanted!
Santhan's solution was that I tape my card over the touch pad! How simple! I could do that, and I did! And now the touch pad doesn't interfere any longer.
Last night I discovered a technical mystery, and I don't see how anyone can solve this one.
All of a sudden, from all the wires that are plugged into my circuit protector, there was one unplugged! I very carefully traced what the unplugged plug went to. Aha, it is to the desk lamp I have next to my computer. Easy, all I had to do was to plug it back in again to the circuit protector.
But not so simple, after all. I swear to you -- there is absolutely no place on the outlet for another plug to go. Every spot is full. So, I ask you, how come that lamp had always worked? Was it a miracle all this time, and I didn't know?
Now, anyone know how to solve this one?
