Just a quick note before I get started for the day. I'm going to be "out of the picture" for a little while as my old and trusty laptop is now an ancient and dead laptop. I was hoping it would last til the end of June and see me through to the end of my school career. It almost made it. Only 74 more days to go!
So the time has come for me to go with an Apple laptop so all of my devices will be synced - yippee! Now I'm just waiting for my tax refund which unfortunately won't be put into savings after all, at least not much of it - the rest will pay for the new laptop which I was going to buy anyway so I don't feel too awful about the expense.
The thing about my tax refund is that the Canadian Revenue agency was hacked because of the heartbleed virus and I've heard about 300(?) social insurance numbers were stolen. The owners of those SINs will be informed by registered letter. (Haven't received one yet thankfully!) For a few days they closed down their website and suspended operations so my refund is in CRA limbo - who knows when I'll see it :( I'll give it a few more days and then will use savings instead and then repay my savings.
I just hope that I can get someone to get my old laptop working briefly so I can get some photos and music out of it. My external hard drive fell on the floor a couple of months ago and also isn't working and I have a huge amount of photos on it. Grrrr....this is where a snarky comment about modern technology vs an old shoe box full of photos would go...
So if you wonder where I am I'm in a deep Matrix which is indeed - infinite!
