This old computer is about to give up the ghost. I have had all sorts of trouble today - besides a back ache and such. Everything seemed normal, it started okay, but after a bit it got slower. At this point I had the mind to back up what little has not been backed up yet. I did a restart and it took a while, but still lagged. Enough that I couldn't connect to the internet at one point. Later I left it and went to the store and when I came back the screen saver was froze and nothing woke it up. I had to do a hard shut down. I tried restarting a couple times but it would freeze. I finally was able to restore the system to a few days ago. So, it works for the moment but it still lags.
I think the inevitable has arrived. Unless I get pretty lucky I'll be checking in from my phone.
Then again, I hope it's not that &*#%!ing Microsoft office update that I have been declining for several days now... It just popped up again while writing this after the computer lagged again, and - having already given up - I went ahead and let it update. Seems better now. WTF!? Should I be happy or mad?!
