As my mother-in-law used to say, "Oh fut!"
Coming home yesterday, I found that some of the clocks were blinking -- which usually means the electricity went out during the day. But oddly, some were still working fine...a mystery.
This morning, I went to turn on my home computer -- nothing. I think mystery solved -- a small hit or near hit by lightening. As far as I can tell the only victim is the computer and maybe it is only a switch. I'll take it to a guy I know this afternoon.
However, it may be a blessing in disguise because if it is actually not reparable (I hope I hope) then I will have to get a new one and I've been planning to buy one with faster and better graphics for Photoshop in the next year or so anyway. And with the exception of a couple of old programs, I'm totally backed up so will lose no files.
But -- I may be off line for a few days. I'll miss you guys and will be back with an update as soon as I can.
