Computer Crash

Well, my XP computer that I’ve had for a long time finally CRASHED. That’s right, it died totally. That’s why I haven’t blogged anything in a while here.

So…

Got a brand new PC with Windows 7 64-bit operating system. Which most of the prior software I have isn’t compatible. Still have a couple of older XP laptops though, but I like using a desktop system for home use.

Me thinks it’s just an “improved Vista” platform, except with all the crap removed that caused so many problems in Vista.

Overall, I like it, but still some quirky stuff about it that’s totally different. Will take getting used to though.

Am going to have to spend my DJ money on a decent backup battery/surge protector, because these cheap ass things from Staples, Office Depot, etc.. DO NOT protect the computer against power surges, which is what pretty much did my old computer in.

    Yeah, I miss my XP computer and it’s good that you got a new one. Mine cost around $300 refurbished. With the Windows 7 64-bit OS, some of my old applications didn’t work or needed a “driver/update”. Those were still good, too, but will never be the same.
