TFG1MIKE 365 – 2023 Day 35!
The PC Is Dead Jim!
Hello all and welcome back to TFG1Mike 365! It’s Day 23 of 2023!!! New Year brings new hopes and dreams to all of us I think. In case you haven’t read any of my blogs before, you can find all the blogs over at FROM THE DESK OF TFG1Mike! Normally my goal with this series is to wake up each new day, and find something on the internet, or in real life to write about. Today is all about … My poor HP from 2010. Well it died on me after 12 and a half years of serving me well. Since 2002 through now in 2023, I’ve had three different computers!
From 2002 to 2010 there was this old one:
Then from 2010 to 2023 there was this HP that at the time when I bought it, my Mom told me she’d pay for it, if it had EVERYTHING I would need for the next decade…. We paid just under a thousand bucks for it at the time! It lasted through 13 years of my 15 years as a podcaster! I was so happy and proud that I had this thing.
Sadly about a week ago it died, after I ran the normal maintenance on it. Once I ran CC Cleaner… POOF no more PC! This HP carried me through 6 years before I had to have my buddy Harrison fix it in 2016, and since then it’s been a monster at getting everything done that I do! I dunno what I would do without my technology… It’s crazy how dependent I am on it, because I kinda live my life online. However I know I can do that with my smart phone as well, but there’s just something about being able to type out a message or an email on an actual computer vs a phone or laptop. I’ve never been a fan of laptops. I just can’t work around the limitations they are for me. When I say that I type and use the mouse one handed, because my right side has Cerebral Palsy. So yeah I need a fully functional wireless keyboard and mouse!
This HP Pavilion Elite was the PC that helped me build my podcasting “career”!! It stored all my files, it got me into blu ray, it was amazing!!! And I never fully took advantage of everything that it could do! It had Windows 7 Home Premium, and I even got to upgrade to Windows 10 on this machine! It recorded thousands of podcasts that I’ve done with my friends, it was a great machine! Without it I was losing my mind, or what I have left of my mind.
Join me tomorrow morning February 5, 2023 as I’ll be writing about the NEW PC. Also check out Morton’s PC Repair and Service! NEW PC let’s go!!!
