I’m jinxed when it comes to computers.

My new computer was running perfectly fine until I downloaded the mother lode of viruses. We finally got them eradicated, but the machine never got back to its original splendor.

Then a few weeks ago, it just shut down. It was in the middle of a show, and it just powered off. Then it happened a few days later and again.

After a few sessions with Microsoft tech support, we decided it was time to do a clean Windows reinstall. Of course I could handle that myself. Ah, but a little information is a dangerous thing.

I somehow used the wrong disc, and installed the 32 bit version of Windows into my 64 bit computer. And then the fun began.

Now, a day and a half later, I somehow got Windows properly installing again.

I will be back for Tuesday’s show, Radio or Not.
