Old Man Fights Obselesence!
Well that's a kick in the teeth.
I woke up this morning to find that my computer will no longer get the full tech support it requires going forward and will soon then be unprotected in the wild west of the internet. The solution seems to be to buy a new computer. Now admittedly my system is an ancient one with its quaint computer tower and separate keyboard and screen and such, but it seems utterly foolish to have to buy something new to replace that which is still working, but that's the modern world we live in (sigh).
There are nearly a full month's worth of posts already developed and scheduled here, but I might be unable to tweak them so if you notice an even rougher presentation than normal please be kind. It's a pain since by changing computers I will be losing some pretty extensive files I've built up over the last few years, but that's the way it goes. I've been through this before, but it's been a while. I guess it's time to bite the bullet and enter the modern world of the laptop (yeah I know everyone uses tablets, but I can only move so quickly).
Sorry about the problems which might develop and please forgive my relative silence on issues if the worst happens. But like the man falling from a skyscraper said on his way down, it's okay so far.
