And lightning was seen.....!
Sorry, I forgot to say.. It was also heard.
And with an almighty bang, lightning struck the building our shop is in.
Other than my freind Mike, who did a Spanish Fandango dance when the bang hit us, nothing much happened. ........
It was a good dance, though.........
Other than the 110 line triped on the DB
Next morning, it became clearer. One double 8 foot flourescent ballast and my computer.
Annes computer was cool ,but my computer's mother board was well and truly fucked.
And being somewhat ancient, not replaceable.
I buy a new computer. Some Dell thing.
It all works cool, as much as loading programs and all that stuff.
So I got this brand new drive, sort of virgin material.
I think of the drives in my dead computer that have info of 5 years
And after some thought, I realize that I don't want most of the shit that is on there.
Just some teaching stuff.
I'm just going to load only that what I use ALL the time.
No friggin' programs that lie in dark and dusty forgotten corners.
This is a thing that happens with most computers owned by human beings.
But I know what's going to happen.
Five years later, it will have the forgotten corners.
