The bad news is that the computer issue is looking to be terminal. (Look, a pun!) Fabulous IT Mom has doctored and babied the Zino, but it's still giving us the blue screen of death. A google search of "overheated zino and blue screen" shows the issue is not uncommon, but that Dell has nothing to offer. Yeah.
The good news is that I am determined to find humor in the whole situation. While working on the Zino, IT Mom mentioned updating several needed programs, including Adobe and Java.
Me: "I know what Adobe does, but what's Java for?"
IT Mom: "Well, it's a program that....uhm, for you, my friend, it's magic!"
She knows me well, this friend.
While we further research the issue and, possibly, new computers, I'll be trying to make our ancient laptop play along and load a picture or two. We'll see how it goes!
