No predictions for me....

My dvi cable for my monitor has gone out.  I know, they only cost about twenty bucks, but I could not get one last night.  No one was open.  So, today I am stuck on the good old laptop.  Which has none of my databases on it.  Which means I can get nothing done today as far as my numbers predictions go.  Then, when I do get it later today, it will be hard wiring heck for the evening.  Why can't they build these things to last?  When I bought my monitor, it was almost 400 dollars.  You would think for that kind of money, it would last longer than a couple of years.

I feel for you, Spy. Although it's probably just a loose cable and an online friend offered some advice on how to fix it, I bought my laptop 2 years ago and began having trouble with it about 2 weeks after the warranty ran out. Even after a week some keys popped off and then the entire white letters disappeared. The first time I insisted Circuit City give me another one. The same happened to the second one (actually this is the 3rd..obviously not a good model)   Yet the monitor and desktop pc I got in 1997 is perfect, just too outdated and not worth updating any more.

I don't think they build anything to last too long these days.

goodness no! (They don't build anything to last.) Turned out, the cable that went bad couldn't be replaced. So I got to have an excuse to buy a new one. Then my mouse acted up... then my keyboard got fried. I wound up buying all new stuff. The computer is new (for me anyway- another special build by my brother) and now I have all new stuff to match. I have wanted to go wireless for some time now and this gave me the perfect excuse. Lemonade out of lemons, that sort of thing. lol!
