Thrift Store Find
Well, I got a new computer yesterday. Right now I am working on the old one, which has worked much better since the new one has arrived. I've been planning to replace this computer for a couple of years now, so no love lost. I will NEVER buy another Gateway computer. Anyway, I wasn't thrilled with the idea of having a Windows 8 computer, but I have to admit, it's pretty nice. Seems like a number of you are having, or have had computer issues. My humble advice to you is BACKUP YOUR COMPUTER, as soon as you can. The other thing I bought yesterday was an external hard drive. They are reasonably priced and worth their weight in gold. I bought a Terabyte drive on sale for $69, normally $89. It just plugs into your USB drive and you can drag and drop everything from your computer and have it backed up. It's so quick too! I backed up half my computer, so far, in about 40 mins. Incredible! Of course if you can't get an external drive, use CDs or DVDs in the interim. They are pretty cheap. I picked up 50 DVDs for $9. Just don't wait for the computer crash that takes all of your files with it.
