Our desktop computer seems to have decided it will celebrate the new year by taking an extended nap. Which is to say, as of this morning, it's refusing to boot up. Whee! Guess that means I'll be posting unedited/unadjusted photos for a while. (And so much for my tentative New Years resolution to start posting video once a week, again.)
On the one hand, I feel like, "eh, the computer was 4+ years old, just about time to upgrade, anyway." On the other hand, 4 years? Kind of a pathetic lifespan for something as expensive as a computer. That's about how long our laptop lasted (or worked well, at least) too. This makes me somewhat ambivalent about continuing to patronize Dell. I've been largely satisfied with their products, and I'm not sure what else is out there that is competitively priced without being super craptastic (I'm looking at you, HP). But is it unreasonable to hope for better? Or is that really asking too much?
My problems. They really are such First World problems.
