Computer blues

Had a scare earlier this week. I fell asleep and left my computer on overnight; no screen saver enabled. Woke up to find that everything on the screen had a blue hue, like a blue filter over the screen. The last time I saw this occurrence, it was on my TV. The tube had gone and I was told by the repair guy that it would be cheaper to buy a new TV than fix the old one.


My computer is an apple eMac; an all-in-one machine. With a blown screen I'd have a dead computer, with no way to rescue the files stored on it already. A scary proposition! Thankfully it seems to have settled itself. There is is still a blue 'mist' though, but maybe I now have a bit of time to back up my itunes, photos and the like.

Also I've had the new BT broadband upgrade. I'm running up to 6 meg now. My manager joked at work today that 'I can now download porn quicker'.
Har, bloody, har!!

Son,

The blue mist is in front of your eyes, caused from downloading too much "arty" material...

Please try and keep the noise down. That thumping from upstairs is really annoying, when you are looking at Jo-Jo's site...
