My laptop’s dotage was made clear to me on the Microsoft website today. For the past few years I have downloaded a spreadsheet calendar from the site, but it appears that Microsoft no longer builds templates for Excel 2002.
Okay yes, I have Excel 2002. That’s the year I bought my laptop. A Sony Vaio. It still works quite well even with the online heavy lifting it is asked to do.
The biggest problem? It has a 14GB hard drive. Geez, my sister just gave me a USB drive that has 16GB. That means a cat could swallow more memory than my computer has.
Seven years isn’t really that old, is it? If my computer were a human it would only be in the Second Grade.
I reluctantly concede that I may need a new Data Computing Machine.
