I think my computer is dead. Since adding some new music to my iTunes library, I have been unable to turn it on. Every time I do, it goes straight to the Blue Screen of Death.
I suspect I exhausted its hard-drive capacity. I do that sometimes, since I keep the things for years and years and years (my last computer, six years old, had ninety-five percent of its disk space in use!), and now, especially, since I have my extensive music collection stored in there.
(I hate how technology reproduces itself; you get one new thing, and sooner or later you find you have to get a lot more stuff to support it. Example: my CD player, which I had for ten years, quit working a couple years ago, so I got an iPod to replace it. Okay. So now all my CDs go onto my computer, where they can be in my iTunes Library. But, oh no! It turns out I had a ton of music. And now my friends can give me music more easily, in the form of giant file transfers. So now I am eating up disk space like a cyber-Galactus, when previously all I had required of a computer was that it allow me to write, surf the Internet and play old computer games. Nothing fancy. Now it seems I need, if not a massively more sophisticated computer, an external hard drive or two).
Anyway, that is why you haven't seen any new posts on this blog in a while.
