  The Wurst of the BBOV

In case you wondered (or even if you didn't) where I've been, I haven't said anything recently because my computer rendered me speechless. In other words — IOW, for those who IM and text way too much — I experienced a major crash. The power supply went on the fritz, damaged the motherboard, and started a cycle of spontaneous rebooting that slowly got worse until I finally couldn't completely enter Windows. This, then leads to a classic "good news, bad news" paragraph.

First the good news: My system is fixed better than before (new dual HDs in RAID configuration that are each 75gb larger than the old, the old HD in a new case as an external USB drive, and 2 x 1gb of faster RAM replacing the older 1gb that wouldn't work with the newer, faster board). Now the bad news: An extended time of ordering and receiving the correct hardware, reconfiguring the OS, and adding back data files, etc. for essential programs  ... oh, and some six hundred + dollars in parts and service.

Since the final crash and resumption of computer services in the Burrow, I found another good entry to the BBOV. Therefore, I'm happy to introduce the newest member of the Big Blogroll O' Vark®™©, The Wurst Blog, the genius of Pastor Robert Wurst of Maple City, Michigan. Drop by, order a wurst and a beer, and tell him, "The Aardvark sent me."

And now, finally, at long last, I hope to get BBOV updates to those who've patiently (for the most part) waited and wondered where they were.

The link under "the Wurst blog" actually goes to Pr. Kavouras' Chaplain blog...

And...ROM? You linked to articles on RAM...do computers still use ROM?????

And...1 meg??? Do you mean Gig?

:-)

Other than those nits, welcome back to cyberworld.
 
I wouldn't put 1 meg past the Aardvark...he's been blogging in one form or another since the TRS-80.

Dear Aardvark,

Where would we be without you? Has anyone thought to take up a collection to keep your ethernal ministry going?

BTW, I don't have the lesson plans (the main content) up yet, but I'm launching a second blog for our church's adult women's discipleship group, Women Among Disciples, at http://womenamongdisciples.blogspot.com. If it meets with your approval we'd sure appreciate being on the BBOV!

Blessings,
Christina

Actually, I was just a half-asleep dork when I wrote this post. I've made the corrections but will keep the comments to prove that I'm more than a self-aggrandizing attention seeker who cannot face criticism without getting defensive. Besides which, why should I deprive the world of Scott and Dan's jocularity?

Why the Aardvark?
My Raison d’être
The aardvark is a "down & dirty" critter that spends its life rooting yucky things out of their dark haunts and feasting on their carcasses. Nuff said?
