Pardon My Absence

I know I haven’t posted in two full months, but it is with good reason. After a little over two years, my trusty HP laptop committed a terrible suicide at the end of January. Until this weekend, I was unable to scrape up funds to replace it with anything more than a Netbook. Given that the main thing I used my computer for is photo editing, a 10″ screen was definitely not ideal. I could have gotten the HP fixed, but being two years old, and given the fact that I already had to replace the hard drive after a year, who’s to say I wouldn’t be fixing something else in a few more months.

This weekend I finally received a large payment that I had been expecting for a month and a half, for a vehicle I sold in the fall, so my first stop was the electronics store. I type to you now from my new Dell Inspiron One “All-in-one” desktop. This is my first computer that is not a laptop and I’m loving the 20″ screen.

At any rate, I’ll be posting much more regularly now (at least more than once every two months, that’s for sure). Next weekend is the Lone Star Rod & Kustom Round-Up of which I have posted photos from in the past, so in the coming weeks I’ll have lots of hot rod porn on the blog. On top of that, I’ve been going to more live shows lately and have been taking more trips out of town, so I should have more to post about than in the past. 

Thanks for your patience!

  1. I know how you feel, I love my Sony VAIO laptop so when I heard that it’s hard drive might be bad, I almost cried. Luckily Geek Squad was able to replace it and after almost 3 year with it, it’s running smooth again. I was considering getting a mac but I like PC too much, so I was glad my laptop was fixable. Though now that I see your monitor I am seriously considering saving up for a separate monitor so I can attach it to my laptop, my sister did this and the two screens are amazing!

    • I had the same problem with that last laptop after just a year. Luckily the warranty was still good but I didn’t feel like paying to have it fixed this time when something else could go bad in a few months. It’s just over two years old. As far as big monitors go, the HP had an HDMI port on it so I would plug it in to my 32″ TV once in awhile, especially for Netflix. I want a Mac too but they’re so damn expensive. I’ll probably get a Chromebook or a small netbook in a few months to have something portable, but after all that time without a computer, I realized my phone does so much, I didn’t really need a laptop but I did want a bigger screen for photo editing and viewing.
