I had a terrible evening. I got home late from work and still had a report to finish. As you know, my computer is really old and slow - I really need to install more . Anyway, when I tried to double- on the file I wanted to work on, a appeared telling me that the file could not be opened. So I decided to try opening it using a different programme but that only made my computer completely. The screen went blank and the froze. By this time, I was tearing my hair out - it was past midnight and I still hadn't started working on that report. I phoned my computer guru friend, Matt, and he told me I probably had a in my system. I must have got it from one of those stupid joke e- mail attachments - you know, like the 'Love ' one. I had to resort to using my but I hate the keyboard on it - it's too small. At least I got the report finished. Matt's going to send me some software to fix the problem.
