Lexington Avenue, August 2007
We must be having sunspots this week.
My travails continued yesterday, when one of my office computers contracted a virus (along with much of the rest of the network) and the other, a temporary replacement for a machine with a dead motherboard, stubbornly refused to print or view e-mail. It was like trying to work with one hand tied behind my back and the other arm in a cast.
Last night I watched “Salem’s Lot,” the fairly dreadful ‘70s TV movie based on the Stephen King novel. Maybe because of my work computers, I kept getting distracted thinking about the time period -- no Internet, no cell phones, no “connectivity” or “social networking.” Being something of a Luddite anyway, I was downright nostalgic for the ‘70s.
(Not for the hair, though.)
