Houston, we have a problem

I have hit a glitch in my blogging capabilities. Apparently, my computer has only about 500 megabytes of space left on it. I have been informed not to put anymore pictures, music, etc. onto my piece of garbage! So that leaves me a little stuck for my blog and my poor lonely ipod!! We will be looking into purchasing a new computer soon, but those kind of purchases tend to take a back seat to the needs of 6 children and the coming attraction! So my future blogs will probably not include too many pictures. ARRGG!!!!! If anyone has any suggestions on how to get a good computer on a tight budget, I am open to ideas. As I look over the checkbook, I am not sure how a computer fits in so it may be a while. In the meantime, I can read your blogs and check my email and I suppose I need to be content with just that. A bit frustrating, but not the end of the world. If fact just typing this and rereading it has given me some clearly needed perspective on that which are "needs" and that which are "wants." I sound a little spoiled complaining about computer space. And on that note of confession, I must sign off and go repent!!!

Does the rest of your computer work fine? If it is simply hard drive space, all you need to do is replace the hard drive. In fact, I have some extra hard drives here with plenty of space on them. You can have them if you'd like. I'll even come over and put them in. Send me an email and we'll work out the details.

bill's got it right. there's not been a computer made that can't be coaxed into a few more years of service. in fact, there may be a way of adding a new hard drive without replacing your old. i just added a 250gb hard drive to my computer while keeping the two that are already on there. so don't lose heart - geeks to the rescue! ;-)

Bipin is spot on. When I do things I usually go for the big change, but that doesn't sound like what you want. Putting an extra drive on would be the best thing. I've got a 60GB hard drive sitting here in my desk you can have. It would take all of 5 minutes to get you set up with it, and that would give you PLENTY of room for pictures and such.

another quick fix is a web-site called www.box.net - it's a free on-line file storage site that gives you 1GB free space. that's twice your copmuter hard-drive, and when you think how much space something like windows, or office takes, probably 3 or 4 times what you actually store on your computer.

check it out - www.box.net - sign up free, and load a bunch of your old files on there, and you should be able to free up a lot of space.
