"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

Helaman 5:12

Tech Support

Some people marry for money. I married for tech support. At least, that is what I tell my hubby, when he comes to my rescue and fixes things on my computer.

The truth of the matter is, I had no idea what tech support was when I married him. But I did know that he knew a thing or two about computers. He is, afterall, a computer programmer. He has worked for Word Perfect AND Microsoft. He has worked in both computer game companies and "regular" companies. He has helped write games for the Playstation and the Xbox.

Through the years I have learned a few things about the computer. I can get around one fairly well. I know enough not to be afraid to adjust a few settings and do a little troubleshooting myself. I have written and designed a few websites, made fancy graphics in Photoshop, and a myriad of other things.

I once bought and installed a writable CDROM drive on this computer...ALL BY MYSELF! And it still works.

But when it came to running games on this computer I was at a loss. The thing was JUST TOO SLOW! We talked about a solution but didn't know if it would work. We put it off and I was left to play my games on other computers...including the KIDS computer. Can you believe that??? The kids computer was FASTER than mine.

Well, that is no more. Yesterday, my dearest, sweetest, most awesomest hubby updated my computer. He installed a new graphics card AND doubled its RAM.

So, now I am playing City of Heroes on my computer rather than the kids and I can finally get Civilization IV to run on it.

Oh, and if you all think that I still just married him for his tech support, he also writes poetry...and HOW!!!


When asked how he comes up with such amazing poetry he says, "It's a mixture of angst and bunny fluff, stirred with a thesaurus."
