62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer

62 Prrojects to Make with a Dead Computer

When I woke up this morning, I was in a great mood.  I sat down with a fresh pot of coffee, fired up the computer, and…  NOTHING.  I got as far as entering my password to unlock the computer and…FREEZE.  Hard reboots, unplugging, removing the battery…none of the usual “quick fixes” were going to work for me today!  Sadly, the computer is D.O.A. 

OK…fire up the NetBook and look for solutions.  OK for surfing online (which is why I bought it), but it doesn’t have the programs loaded on it, so the work I needed to do went by the wayside.

The iPhone?  That doesn’t take me very far!  Strike Three!  I’m out.  🙁

That made me realize — what’s my back-up plan?  I use Carbonite to back up my files, though I’m told it doesn’t back up programs.  In the digital age, who has disks anymore?  All the software I’ve purchased lately has been a download.  Looks like I may be out of luck…grrrrrrr!

Wanting to look at the bright side, I wondered “What can you do with a dead computer?”  Searching online, I’m not the only one asking this question.  That’s when I found Randy Sarafan’s book:  62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer.  I don’t know Randy, though he gave me a much-needed laugh today…along with a whole new meaning for “computer hacking!”

    Amen Sister! We live by (and sometimes die by) technology. I love technology but it is so frustrating when things don’t work as planned/expected….particularly when we have become so reliant upon it for everything. As a “techie”, I have a LOT of patience to make things work – more so than my non-techie counterparts.

    Thanks for the great BLOG Post!!!

    Terri — I’m definitely “Hooked on Technology.” As a non-techie, I just need the patience that needs to go with it! Glad you enjoyed the post. 🙂

    Hi Stacy,
    I recently went portable. I’m using a laptop now. I have the remains of my old desktop waiting patiently for me to clean and toss them as soon as I can. (which for me means a few at a time).

    Thanks for a humorous post.

    Hannah

    I’m with you, Hannah…laptops are the way to go! I hope you’ll come back with an update on what you do with your old desktop. 🙂
