My laptop, my primary means of communication died today. Our lovely shiny "go faster" PC remains in our second home [status:empty but longing for happy inhabitants], so I am somewhat computer-less.
A Specialist in a Black Suit from the church's IT support company came to take it away, saying that it was.... "making clunking noises, which isn't good."
You don't say.
Clunking noises!?! CLUNKING NOISES? What do we pay this company for?
Certainly not for up to the minute technical diagnoses - I could have got a better description from my techy friend TalkRhubarb!
Why did the hard drive fry?
* the singing pastor sang over it?
* it realised how much a children and family pastor has to do and gave up trying to process all the computery demands?
* it doesn't like January either?
* it REALLY didn't like the database management training it was put through this week?
* it doesn't like being carried about from church service to church service (we operate two buildings that I dash between)
* it dealt with one media file to many? (c'mon though: Millenials are the visual generation!)
* it suffered from Mac-envy and realised it could never compete?
* my little friend with the fart machine got his hands on it? (see last post!)
Any other suggestions?
