Just Say NO!

I have spent the last couple of weeks back in the computer repair business. I DO NOT WANT to be in the computer repair business anymore. Every time I say I am not fixing anymore computers someone calls with another one to fix. STOP THE MADNESS!

It's just a simple matter of saying NO isn't it? It would be simple if I had someone else I could refer them to. Other then myself I have not met an HONEST computer technician yet. So if you are out there and you are an HONEST and reasonably priced computer technician in the London/St. Thomas area please contact me. I have LOTS of work for you. But if you scam or overcharge ONE of my referrals, I will publicly verbally flog you until you never fix another computer EVER!

I want to get back into my shop and actually do some woodworking. I have been out of there for so long I have forgotten most of what I actually have in there and probably how to use most of it. Today I started doing an inventory database of everything in the shop. This could take a while. It seems I have accumulated quite a large amount of wood and metal working tools and equipment. This isn't including all the sundries like sandpaper, screws, nails etc. Maybe one day I will inventory all that too. It will be a very long list!

Tomorrow I have one more computer to fix and one other repaired computer to deliver. I have one more previously promised house call to make to setup a wireless system in a couple of weeks. But other then that I am DONE. SO NO, NADA, NOT, NAY, I CANNOT fix your computer. If you don't ask I won't have to cave and say yes.

Where in the World is Deb?

I'm still out here. Summer has been hotter then hell and busier then a wet hornet nest. It's already September. I don't feel as if I have accomplished anything but the last two months have been a blur of activity. Woodworking? What's that? I started several small projects and finished NONE. For the first time I am almost looking forward to SNOW!!

I have spent a lot of time indoors because of the heat. The shop was a sweat box so I couldn't be out there either. I did a lot of computer repairs and not much else. Feels like another wasted summer. But the weather left me little choice. We have suffered through another scorching heat wave this past week. It really makes you think global warming is not the ugly rumour some purport it to be.

Hopefully the temperatures will level out in the next few weeks and I can get back in the shop. I do miss it. And I really have no love for computers anymore. Seasons change.
