The Deal

I was able to get a very good deal on some computer software. I paid the bill, made the download and then the fun began. To make a long story short there has been countless hours on the computer, boring time watching the computer install the program only to spit out an error message. Calls to Microsoft and the software vendor provided little insight into the cure. I am not a person who likes to admit defeat but trying to solve the problem results in lost sleep and constant thought. Finally with the help of Google and a computer friend I was able to cure the problem and install the new software. In review if my time is worth anything then the software really wasn't such a good deal, but it would have been worse at full price. Now I'll try the install on the laptop with fingers crossed.

A bumper sticker allegedly seen on a truck in Texas. I like it.
