My email was hacked, again, recently. I had not taken time to delete all of the email addresses acumulated, and apologize for any spam emails received.
At the same time I was unable to get into my laptop because the password would not work. A virus was contracted. The computer was taken to a place where the hard drive was wiped clean. Unfortunately, I had not backed up my files. When the computer was returned I was informed the ‘r’ on the keypad no longer worked and I would need to purchase another keypad, which is expensive, or buy another keyboard and hook it up to the computer.
While my computer was down, I spent the time reading books, and looking at chess games on a set & board, as in the old days. I also stopped having a constant dull headache I now realize came from spending so much time on the computer. My problem is that I have too many interests, and the web never ends.
While working at the Atlanta Chess & Game Center the subject of cellphones came up and when I mentioned I did not, nor had I ever had, a cellphone. One young man asked, “How did you make it without a cellphone?!” My answer was, “We muddled through.”
This will be my penultimate post on the blog. The fact is that I have written enough. There is a Zen saying, “A man who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.”
I have grown old and have lost interest in chess and writing. Ted Turner said, “Lead, follow, or get out of the way.” I do not wish to lead, and cannot follow, so there is only one thing left for me to do.
