Thanks and Computers

Big thanks to anyone who bought Only For Him over the weekend or any of my other books. And big thanks if you plan on doing so later this week. Remember the first week it is released it is discounted.

Ordered a new desktop computer this weekend. Should be here by the end of the month. I am through screwing around so I bought one with 1 TB memory, which trust me is mega memory. This is often used by gamers who play graphic heavy games online. I also am getting a shiny flat screen LCD monitor. Beautiful screen. I shall be petting it when it arrives.

The laptop is doing well but I admit I am tempted to get a new one. I will try to resist as there is nothing wrong with the one I have.

However, when the desktop took a motherboard dive, it took with it the wireless router. The router isn't broken (I don't think) but it does need to be reset. So, at the moment I cannot sit comfortably on the couch with my laptop but instead must sit at the computer desk with it plugged into the highspeed wireless cable.

I assure you I will be extremely happy when everything is back to normal. Right now, I am grumpy.

Hope everyone has a good week.


  1. Yay for shiny new computers!!! 1TB - WOW. *jealous*

    I had a perfectly good laptop and picked up a second one earlier this year. But I just have laptops, so having two isn't that much different than you having a desktop and a laptop.

    Hmm. Maybe you could justify a new laptop by donating the old one someplace... (Rationalizing book and tech purchases is one of my skills!)

  2. Yeah I figured if I had to buy a new desktop I might as well get the 1 TB. It better be fabulous!

    I'm sure I'll at least get a new laptop by next year. I've only had this one a couple of year and it seems to have plenty of memory on it but I love new things.

  3. I wish I had a new PC too *sigh* At the moment it's at the shop, it died last week :(

    I have stolen my brothers' now :D

    Just finished reading Only for him, loved it! Another great one, Shawn :)

    Have a good week too!

  4. I love it when I get a new computer. I'll be getting a new Dell laptop in the fall. I didn't know you were a gamer, Shawn.

    Congrats on getting the new computer!

    Have a terrific day!

  5. I actually USED to be, Drew. Final Fantasy, sigh.I really don't have time for that anymore.

    But I still insisted on getting the bigger memory because with all our photos and documents and tunes and programs a lot of memory just makes sense for us.

    Thanks, cutie. MUAH.

    And I am glad you enjoyed it, R.

  6. Congrats on the new computer! My laptop works just fine, but I find myself looking at shiny, new ones all the time. I do love buying gadgets.

  7. Thanks, now that I ordered it I want it NOW.

    Ah, the laptop. I can build one in a lovely ice blue and give it megamemory and preload programs and...grrr I need to wait

  8. Of course, after using your new desktop, the laptop's going to feel like it's on its last legs. :) My newest laptop has quad core but the same amount of memory, and holy crap, everything happens so much faster...

    *looks very sweet and innocent*

  9. Oooh, congrats on the new computer!!

    It's always so much fun shopping for desktops or laptops. Mine are still relatively new and work great so far so no new ones yet.


  10. Congrats! Shiny and new is so much fun!! So jealous you are getting a new desktop. You must give your pretty new monitor a few pets for me ;)

  11. I still think you need a new laptop, AF. You know the keyboard acts up on you a lot.

    Congrats on the desktop! GO YOU and PD!

  12. Yeah that is true about the keyboard, S. And it IS annoying.

    I will definitely be petting the monitor. I even petted them in the store, lol.

  13. Having the larger hard drive makes a hell of alot of difference... Living with gamers - I know I couldn't live without it..

    However you do love your cookies - so you just might fill it up....

    It's nice to get shiny new toys...


  14. It is and it's supposed to arrive today!

  15. *suspenseful music reaches a crescendo*

  16. LOL! So true. I keep checking though and UPS still says "out for delivery"

  17. Maybe UPS is afraid to deliver, with you pacing back and forth in front of the door like that. ;)

  18. Did it arrive? Are you petting it and hugging it and calling it George?

  19. LOL @ Chris! I love those cartoons.

    Shawn, try not to pet it too much! Your laptop might get jealous.

  20. NO IT IS NOT HERE! Damn UPS.

    I didn't have to wait for it all day the DH did and it's now after 5 and its not here! GRRRR.

    UPS sucks

  21. And the precious computer has arrived! Woo hoo!

    We are going to eat dinner before we set it up but I already pet the lovely monitor

  22. Congrats!! And I hope your family gives you some alone time with it. ;)
