Some lessons learned

Harsh ones at times

I have been dabbling with eBay and OZtion (an Aussie auction site) well I use the Australian eBay site too for obvious reasons.

I mean I live in this sunburnt country

I am afraid I went overboard with this Auction business and now have three soon to be four computers at home and three more at my sons place.

I have called a halt to this two I gave to my son one he is using as a server he told me.he is using the other for his personal computer.

The third one he has is my original computer that he kindly gave me but I stuffed it up whilst experimenting making a partition on the drive so I could install Ubuntu an alternative to Microsoft windows.he is going to try fix the Bios but fears the worst. my own stupid fault I hat a lot of data on it as well . yes you twigged it I never made a back up so remember peoples make one for peace of mind.

My e-mail inbox is now full of mail from auction sites telling me what is being auctioned etc.

I have purchased some bargains it is true but my son says I will not make a profit re selling them again.

I am afraid he seem right but I shall still keep the best two plus my old one for menial tasks like burning DVD;S and also CD’S now and then Endeavour to sell them; all the same, I shall never get to the USA if I keep this up.

I want to visit there and Canada as well before I vanish from this mortal coil I tell yah.

My days now are filled with memory chips larger hard drives stuff like that; not to mention software like windows and office in fact I sadly bought a Sata 250 Gig hard drive brand new. Still in the box but not for long.

What my cleaning lady thinks I have no idea but when she pops in every 14 days her cry is good grief another one it must drive her bloody bonkers.

So you know about New Year resolutions right well mine is starting early this year, in fact it started as I put these words up on my blog and that’s fair dinkum.

My oath it is.

I am annoyed the partitioning never worked out all the same as I want to see Ubuntu.

Comments most welcome
