This past week we lost a dear friend.
Mr. Dell Personal Computer passed away after a brief but sudden illness. He was ten years old. That's about one hundred PC years to you and I.
Mr. Dell - or Model T, as my kids fondly call him - was a loyal and trusted servant, always there for me, from online shopping to food blogging to catching up on email, he never let me down.
Until this year, when he became slower than molasses in January, and hummed like a radiator, even then he still hung on.
May you rest in peace, Mr. Dell, your warm, inviting hum and soft alluring glow will be missed.
Note: I've wriggled a laptop out of my kids' hands in order to issue this post. Future postings will resume next week, when Mr. Dell's newfangled replacement arrives in a box.
May he last as long as the previous one.
