Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all. --John F Kennedy

Day 7 of the Twelve Days of Thanksgiving---

I sat down tonight with the computer…I get error message, illegal applications, virus alerts etc. All activities cease and my laptop is put through a rigorous workout with Adware removal, AVG virus scan, Spybot, CWShredder, updates and installation repairs…it’s about to be defragged but I wanted to get my post up before I set it into defrag mode. No guess about what I am thankful for tonight; the means to set my laptop in order when it is all out of kilter. Of course, it is a slow process, so after I stared a couple of the apps I turned it over to George who really gave it the work over. He’s the trusted computer guru in this family.
I was thinking…as I lay there on the couch exhausted from the workout my personal trainer gave me early this morning…drifting in and out of consciousness…how nice it would be to run some software on myself when I have a virus, if I’m running sluggishly, or if I’m out of date I can get simple updates. Even better, when my thinking gets all scattered, if I could run a defrag that puts all of my thinking in order so that it’s easier to access what is important quickly. Imagine that…

That would be pretty awesome!! 'Course someone would inevitably find a way to super overcharge it!
