I just got back from the computer doctor. Apparently the registry was corrupt. In the meantime, my back up computer was acting up.
I was doing some recording and noticed that the mic was picking up the computer noise. So I shut down. When I tried to restart the dang thing did what it did before and only came up to an E screen (it’s an E machine).
I am using recording for writing this time. This means instead of writing a song and then recording it, I am recording ideas while I am still writing the song. There are plusses and minuses to this. I don’t have too much in the way of lyrics yet but basically have a verse and chorus of a song with some ideas about how it should sound.
Anyway, I took the sick computer in and picked up the healed on and am now writing from it.
I do think it’s pretty much a necessity for me these days to be connected to the Net.
