GA took an unintended break this week due to twin cyber-tragedies; my desktop was seized by a Trojan that tore holes in its Operating System AND my laptop succumbed to a Starbucks baptism. Yep, that French Roast spilled on my keyboard and crept to the motherboard...
sizzle! snap! crackle! pop!
I'm blogging on a loaner now with my coffee at a safe distance.
So I went to Best Buy in Jersey City yesterday to look for a new one... and (literally) the moment I walked in a stranger barked "Zimmer's going down!" as he passed by. I turned to look I and saw Frank Raia with the barker, a tall, heavy-set guy.
Very odd behavior in a public place, no? Thuggish. Immature. Don't these guys take a holiday? At least Frank comports himself like a gentleman.
So.. saw a slamming ASUS machine there but the price tag was over the GA kitty.
Anybody know of a good deal on a 17" laptop? 6-8 MB RAM, good storage, Intel processor, Windows 7?
Well, my blogging point was to wish you-all a Happy New Year. And wish you all achieve your goals for 2012.
My advice: set the bar low. Then you will only exceed your own expectations.
For example, say you need to lose 50 lbs. Resolve to lose 5 instead- cutting yourself a 90% break. Not so daunting, right? Once you lose that 5 (you can do it! I know you can!) then you'll be all jazzed, proud and ready to take on the other 45!
Trust me. Setting the bar low is a winner. Because a small success encourages even greater ones.
Alright, I've got to get going. Again, I wish you all a safe and happy and healthy New Year.
