My Computer

Well I got the bad news that my desktop computer is having to be sent somewhere to be fixed and it could take up to 3 weeks. Argh!!!! Thankfully, I have backups on my external hard drives and I have a great laptop. But it's going to be hard to be without one of my "arms" for this long of a time. I've even thought about buying another computer so I won't have to be without it. Best Buys had a good HP for only $749. Man, it used to be $3,000 a pop for a new computer. Do you think, one day, they will be $299 or even $199? If they ever get that cheap, then, sure enough, there won't be anyone without one. I remember having a black & white TV with just 3 stations and when that TV went, my parents went 3 yrs without a TV before they could afford to buy another one. Now, I bet 99% of all the children in the USA today have a color TV with at least more than 3 stations. They don't even know there is a life without it. It's almost about to be that way with computers. Poor people still can't spend $800 on one (plus the attendant expenses like Internet access, printers, paper, ink cartridges, software) and elderly people who believe they could never learn how to use one are about the only ones who don't have them. The rest of us are completely hooked. I completely communicate via email, especially since the postal rates are so ginormous now! I refuse to buy stamps unless it's an absolute necessity. I even gave up my Christmas cards! I Google everyday about something. I'm looking for directions and maps. I rely on it to pay bills, keep up with investments, follow all of my hobbies (digital photography, scrapbooking, genealogy, history, Bible study, etc), witness and pray for others, dog rescue, etc.

I DO NOT misuse my computers. It's a blessing from God and I try to use it wisely. I don't surf for pornography. I don't look for other men. I don't use it to cause other people trouble such as stealing identities or making false accusations that could ruin their lives. I don't shop for anthrax or nuclear bombs. I don't use it to purchase books on assassination or how to commit the perfect crime. If I were to use our computers in such ways, then I couldn't expect God's blessing and protection. As it is, the computers are great blessings to me and and God has helped me to learn more and more different ways to use it until they have become like extra arms.
