Chico's Computer Died

I just got a call from Chico, his 10 year old computer died and he said he's going to be off line for a couple of days. I suggested he look at a Amazon tablet as a temporary fix, they can be had for well under $100.00 and can do everything a computer can do.

10 years in computers and technology is like 25 years with anything else. Although I do have a 27" Sony TV in my bedroom that I bought in 1997

It may have fell off the back of a truck that happens quite often. Maybe Chico is out checking alleys and other places where they fall from trucks.

You're all very bad and mean! He probably got it second-hand from some hospital he was doing bill collecting for -- it was one of THEIR oldsters! {wink}
