Ramblings from Raeann

Computers are evil!

Posted by Raeann Blake (Author) on May 23, 2018

So… as we all know, I have struggled for the last 5 years with health and mental health issues related to the health issues. Still with me? It doesn’t get easier, but does become mostly manageable. Or so we think. Enter the computer thug.

A few weeks back, my laptop decided to throw a temper tantrum. I’m talking about trashing the room, throwing things, stomping the feet and screaming temper tantrum. Bribery, I thought. That would do it. I offered new video cards, upgraded speakers, a dedicated fan to keep it cool. No. But, I absolutely set my foot down when it demanded a new hard drive. Not happening. Fortunately for me, and unfortunately for said laptop, “I has backup,” in more ways that one. Not only do I have a smarter-than-the-average-computer son-in-law, but I also have SOS Online Backup. So, the aforementioned son-in-law slapped the little miscreant with a restore to factory settings. Take that! And after a few re-installs of necessary programs that I need to continue with the books, I’m now ready to retrieve all those files safely tucked away with SOS. So, hopefully by this time tomorrow I will be back ready to work again, in spite of the bratty laptop.

I am eternally so grateful for all of you and how steadfastly loyal you continue to be through all of these delays and setbacks.

Happy Reading to each and every one of you!

    Wishes for continued good health to you. I have enjoyed your books immensely, and look forward to your next book in the Seven Brothers seris. I am a die hard fan of your work—-I LOVE that your books are longer in length and give such deep development of each character. Makes the reader feel as if they know them personally. As someone who has a “negative force field ” surrounding me when working on a computer, I can understand your angst with your computer episode. So happy you were able to retrieve files. I will look forward to your next book–whenever it is released. Thank you for creating such wonderful stories.

    The next book I’m sure will be worth it – give your son-in-law a hug for getting your naughty laptop on the straight and narrow. Take Care

    My daughter and son-in-law are computer techs. If I have a problem, I just give them a call. They can try to fix it remotely and if they can’t, I get a visit. Win, win either way for me!! She is a supervisor and creates programs and writes code for computers – He works of the whole computer.
