I'm not blog-dead yet

Still here. Still computer-less.

Meh.

Still, on upside have had various friends see Hamlet and report back very favourably; the world has not ended (yet?); the weekly short interviews with Dougie Henshall for Primeval are delicious (and his efforts to mask any extreme Scottish accent for the benefit of the BBC America viewers seems to be diminishing week by week); Aberdeen was - mostly - sunny (sorry George and Sonia, it's the impact we have!) and thoroughly enjoyable with much music and food and movie fun; and....

...well, shucks, I think I'm missing blogging. I'm certainly missing you guys out there. And communicating eclectic post topics to ya'll. But I'm in a real quandry about what to do with replacing the computer: my (limited) use of Vista has made me want to tear my head off; I can't really afford an apple mac - or the long wait to get one because of the extra cost; and I have hardly begun to face up to the consequences of my non-full backup with re-setting up on ANY system... meh and MEH.

I miss you guys.

On the other hand I have just managed to reach the end of S2 of Battlestar Galactica (new version). Yes, late I know. But the plan is to catch up in time for the release of s4 on dvd (I have s3 still to watch).

Life goes on. 37 more sleeps till Stratford...

We miss you too, Lisa!

Hope that the computer situation gets sorted out soon, and that you'll be back with us before too long.

Oh Lisa - blog land ain't the same without you.

Hope you sort it soon.

Shucks, thanks. Am beginning to get quite hysterical about the whole thing now - need the vent and not being able to blog as I please is driving me K-razy as of now.

But the computer issue is perhaps making me more so.

We miss your blogging Lisa so please don't give up! And I can recommend a Mac Mini, they may be on the slow side but they are cheap and cheerful and have the lovely Mac operating system. You'll need your own screen, keyboard etc, but that's not a problem if you have them left from your dead computer. And if you run out of memory you can buy a Lacie external drive for another £70 ish.

I don't know what they sell there, but here we have some cheap Macs - the mini starts at $599 US.

I've a decent workable screen and keyboard. And a mouse (which would hopefully cope with being transferred to a mac?). I also have an external drive - again, not sure if it will cope with having been used once for PC and then transferring to a mac but still...

This may JUST be the solution to my concerns and still within a reasonable budget... I COULD be back sooner than I dreaded I would be...

Ditto the above comments.

Glad to see someone else getting into BSG. I am chomping at the bit for the S4 DVD release.
