Two problems

Hi!!!! I'm still I thought I would let you know what's going on at the moment.

First, my main laptop, which is about six years old, has died on me. I don't know what the problem is and I don't know how to fix it. I can't use it at all. It started having problems last year so my boyfriend gave me a smaller, basic one so that I could at least have something to get online with. That is the one I started to use this weekend when the big one died.

Problem is, that one has issues with the power cord. It doesn't charge the battery and for it to do so you have to wiggle and jiggle the cord until you find a specific position where it starts to charge again. So I guess it got tired of the wiggling and jiggling because now the power cord is not working at all. The battery is on it's last charge and I'm sure it will die soon if it hasn't already done so. I turned it off and haven't used it since Saturday.

So, I guess I won't be able to post anything on my blog until my BF gets back from his latest trip (November). He's the techie around I will still be able to visit everyone's blog using my most recent birthday gift, an IPad. I'm really not one for these types of gadgets, but it was my BF's gift to me so I can't sound

Problem #2: I've received emails from some of my internet friends letting me know that they've been receiving weird emails from me. I'm sure you all know the kind. If it looks weird to you then don't open it. I have also been receiving them and if I'm not sure I won't open it up. This happened to me once before and I don't know if there is anything I can do to stop it from happening. It's so annoying that people have nothing better to do than hack, spam or try to scam others!

Ok, so I think that covers it all. I hope you all are having a great start to the week!

Have a beautiful day! =)


  1. Oh Lataina! Sorry for your loss! Our laptop is on its way out also. The screen has to be just perfect or we cant see anything!

  2. Thnx Audra! It's just annoying because it seems these things happen at the most inconvenient times.

  3. Thank goodness for the BF present! At least you can keep in touch. Hope you get it sorted quickly, I look forward to your blogs. Gill x

  5. Mi dispiace per il pc, so cosa vuol dire... per il problema del cavo puoi provare a fissare una stecca di legno ma anche una matita nelle due estremità, che di solito sono quelle che fanno saltare il contatto, in questo modo, fissandole con nastro adesivo non dovrebbero muoversi più.
    Un bacio

  6. Only when these things break down we feel what an important part of our life they grew to be.
    I lost some important saved information when I changed computers.
    It's so good you have someone to take care of yours.
    Hugs, Drora

  7. I have an ipad too but I find blogging with it impossible and commenting is hell. I still want my keyboard and definitely my mouse!

    Till November! A mere week away..

  8. Eso no es agradable... ) = Pero todo tiene solución ¡Paciencia!!!
    Un abrazo

  9. Seems like you're facing a bad tech period.. I'm so sorry! But I'm sure you'll find a way to fix it all, don't give up! :)
    Hugs, Mij

  10. I can see you're having a disaster week just like me! LOL! You know you can get those adapter cords on Ebay for $5 or something really low like that. My sister's cat ate her cord and I bought one on Ebay. You could always look. Hope you have a better week next week.

  11. Hi Lataina, I hope your boyfriend back in early November.
    He is a good computer technician? (I wish so)
    And then you come back to post on your miniatures. ;)
    Unfortunately this type of spam with your e.mail can be a virus!
    I hope everything will be solved.

  12. Espero ya todo vaya mucho mejor!!!
    Un abrazo

  13. Hi Iris! I think I forgot to tell you that my computer has been repaired at great cost. I'm looking forward to seeing you blog again.
