Computer Problems

Yuk, my computer is back in the shop – refusing to even boot the operating system and emitting a tantalizing aroma of burnt plastic. I Can’t wait for the call from the repairman whose eyes must just be lighting up with dollar signs. Before the meltdown, I’d been experimenting with the Russian web site allofmp3.com (hopefully this wasn’t the cause of the problem) which works something like Itunes, except that songs are approximately $ .04 instead of $ .99. It’s mostly pop and rock but I found some things I was interested in such as new Elvis Costello (excellent!) and the new Bjork (strange!) There’s a disclaimer on the web site stating that it meets all Russian Federation Internet laws, so maybe this vague statement will keep the RIAA from knocking on my door in the middle of the night. If anyone has a thought pro or con on this web site, please send me an e-mail.
