This confuser has been acting up for awhile now and it looks like we will have to go shopping for a new one. This morning it didn't want to boot up, just kept looping and shutting down. Finally got it to boot up and have been able to indulge in my morning surfing of the intratubes. Lately The Old Lady has not shut down the confuser, just turned off the monitor, but this morning it was froze up and when she killed the power to re-boot it started looping. She tried a number of times and then left for work after leaving me a note saying it may be dead. I tried several times and finally got it up and running. All in all we can't complain too much about this confuser. We bought this one used about 5 years ago and have only had to get it fixed once for which we paid an hour's service charge. It has gotten slower in recent months and sometimes locks up. Just yesterday we were talking about shopping for a new printer as it was making funny noises and acting up. Now it looks like we will be shopping for more than a printer.
At times like this I wish I knew more about these damn confusers. If it was a car, I could probably work on it and get it running again. Because it is electronic, it is FM (Fucking Magic).
It died again and it took me almost 2 hours to get back to this post. The screen just went black while I was comtemplating how to finish up this post.
