I’ve decided to let go of my computer worries. See? There they go. I have done everything I know how to do and none of it has worked. I also have no money to have it repaired. I have been in this exact same situation before and the solution I most often find is Visa.

I’m not going to do that this time. Over the past four or five years we have charged ourselves poor. This is a trend that has recently stopped and I’m not going to start it up again. I have lived without my computer for the past few weeks and I think it’s safe to say that I could live without it indefinitely if need be. I hope the need does not be but I’m going to wait and see.

The computer is royally hosed. I’ve tried doing a repair install of Windows, a full install of Windows, I’ve swapped out the RAM, I’ve swapped out the main hard drive, I’ve put the main drive in Angel’s PC as the slave just to copy all the important stuff off of it, and that’s when I realized that a gigantic amount of my recordings were gone. Nothing is working. It won’t boot. Bad computer!

I am going to trust God for a solution. I have trusted Drew for one and he has let me down. His “Just charge it” solution was awfully tempting however.

There’s also another issue that I’ve been wrestling with. All of the software I use for recording is stolen. Between my main recording program and all of the plug-ins I probably have close to $3,000.00 worth of software that I found on Limewire. Of course I swiped all of this stuff before I was a Christian but still, it puts me in a weird spot.

I had never really given it much thought until I started thinking about having to re-install all of my programs, which I’ll have to do after my PC is fixed. It just seems like I’d be steeling them all over again. That really bothers me. So I decided I’m not going to do it.

So here’s where all of this leaves me: No computer, no recording software, no money, no worries.

I’m going to go back to the worship music subject maybe tomorrow or the day after becasue Taylor made some very good points that I want to address. I just need to get my thoughts together first.
