Computer is dead

This past week my computer died and the dryer that we just replaced the heating coil on died. What luck!

Since we have moved into this house, about 6 months, the computer has died twice, the satellite, the heating element on the dryer, the electric ignitor on the gas oven, and the gas furnace won't light. It has an electric ignition instead of a pilot light. The furnace is only 3 years old. I've tried cleaning it since I read about some dirty sensor could keep it from lighting. It didn't help. Time to call in the professionals.

I could attribute all of these things to the age of them, since the dryer and the oven are both older models. I'm not sure how old the computer is since it was a hand me down, but I'm sure it's a few years. But the timing is just suspicious. We had the electrical checked out when we bought the house and it ws fine, had some major renovations in recent years. Which was very important since it's over 100 years old. An electrician friend is coming over to check some things out. But other than that I guess it's time for some housekeeping.

I don't know if my computer can be fixed this time. The guy said it was an issue with the motherboard. I don't know when I'll be able to get a new computer. So I don't know how long it will be before I can get back online. I'll miss everyone.
