Today was not eventful, but not that great neither. After giving up on both the “newer” notebook, and connecting a monitor the old one, I decided a new PC was needed. I therefore went to TigerDirect, and purchased an off-lease PC that is a bit legacy, however it is the best I can afford. It would cost me $175 which is covered with the money I have in the bank and a buffer sum that I have attached to my account to protect from small over-drafts.
And I received a disc from Netflix, which I returned, but for some reason – when Andie called me, the phone never rang. She did left a message, and I returned the call. And a little while after making dinner, Chris stopped by for a couple of hours.

Today has ended up being a very horrible day. I am not sure if the problem has been the monitor, or the computer’s VGA port. I am now starting to think it is a VGA port problem. The VGA port is the place where one would insert a monitor into the PC.

Not much happened today. Most of the day was spent cursing at the monitor that is blanking out for sometimes a couple of minutes and in intervals between 5 – 20 minutes. With a little research, I am hoping it is the VGA cable (from PC to Monitor) which is about $15 – $20 (I hope) rather than the cost of a new monitor which the cheapest is about $100.
I decided to eat my meal a little early. It was OK as I usually just eat once a day, and normally not an issue of when. A few hours afterwards, my brother stopped down for a couple of hours. Afterwards, I watched a PBS show on Netflix.

Today was a bit of a normal day. I had to make a phone call. In addition, my brother called me and asked me to send an email for him. I went to the post office which required I done another errand. After which, I taken care of a couple of bills.
I think the medicine I am currently taking is getting to me. I been feeling a bit ill, and I doubt it’s from anything else. It’s as if I was taking it for the first time which is not the case since I been on this for years now. Thankfully I see my doctor later this month. Continue reading June 7
