#TBT | PC Resurrection, Again

The storm came out of nowhere. I heard the sirens go off in park across the street and I came out of my office to see rain shooting sideways, branches spinning in the air and lightning.  

I rushed back to my office to shut down and unplug my computer. As it completed its cycle, the power in the house went out. No surge, no lightning flash… but it was enough to send my computer to PC ER.

So fresh, so new…

Of course, all my wallpapers and so on went back to default. It was like turning on a new machine—fresh and full of hope. It reminded me of the one of last times I had a new machine like this so I went back to find a post on it for my #TBT post. This comes from 2015 when I had switched to a refurbished, second-hand (but awesome) laptop. The computer I’m on now came the year after.

It’s dawning on me that I go through a lot of computers. It’s lucky for me I have The Computer Guy just a few blocks away.


New Machine, New Beginning
