On the Fritz

December 5, 2015

My computer has died, and I don’t know how long it will take to be resurrected. I am creating this post on my phone, where I have a few photographs. It’s a bit tricky, but I’m amazed that it can be done at all. These are photos of a window in the family room of my friends Kathy and Ken. One is from mid-day, the other toward evening.

  1. You and your phone are doing fine. I used a tablet and a point and shoot for weeks and had a great time with it.

    • Yes, I remember that, Ken, and used it to help motivate me to try posting this way. Thanks!

  3. I’m sorry about the computer but impressed you found a way so quickly. I know many people use small devices to post on their blogs all the time but when you’re not used to it, that’s different.
    My computer crashed and could not be saved a few months ago. My phone was ruined around the same time, and the LCD screen on my camera died – enough! Now I’m waiting to decide on the next camera, limping along without the screen. The new computer is better, but tens of thousands of photos are now hidden from Lightroom. I can slowly retrieve most (backed up on a hard drive) but it takes forever. Joy. Please, let your computer come back – I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.

    • I was surprised that I could post from my phone. Really didn’t think I would be able to. Was glad I hadn’t deleted these photos from the phone, too. Oh, gad. Computer and phone and camera almost simultaneously??!!! That’s just awful. I guess taking photos without a screen is a little like the good ol’ days. But really hard when you’ve grown accustomed to a screen. I thought I had my computer problems solved, but I see I still have a huge one. The external hard drive with all my photos on it keeps ejecting on its own—improperly. At least that’s what Apple’s error message says. I can hear it still running, though, so I don’t know what’s happening. I do have backups of all the photos, though, and the Lightroom catalog.
