I have been out of commission for a while with computer problems. It started out looking like a Windows issue due to a Windows 10 update. My laptop would not let me sign in to my account but only as a temp account meaning I didn’t have direct access to any of my files or photos. I could get to them but not use them. A Google search found that this, while not a super common problem, is a known issue and was not virus related. Multiple fix suggestions were tried to no avail. It finally became apparent that my wife and I were not going to be able to fix this problem. A few computer repair shop recommendations later and out went my poor laptop for repairs. It turns out the hard drive was on its very last legs. Now all is back to working as it should. Of course I am way behind on a couple of contracted pieces of writing. A chapter for an edited volume on unknown Civil Rights workers in Florida is due the first week in June and I have a book project in the works for Arcadia that is due later this year. Let’s not forget the dozens of blog topics racing around in my head. And oh yeah, I am getting the graduate school itch again.
Anyway, it’s good to be back and I hope to see you on a more regular basis.
