Blogger problems weren't the only reason for scant posting yesterday. My computer just decided to turn itself off--it was as if someone literally pulled the plug. So I ripped out the power supply, found a local computer store, and was told the small power supply in my e-Machine would have to be ordered & then delivered by Monday.
Drove around town, couldn't find another shop. Cannibalized two older computers, one of whose power supplies had the wrong connector to the motherboard. Ripped out power supply # 3, jerry-rigged it to my e-machine, de nada.
Heard a little whining sound that made me wonder if a capacitor was winding down. If capacitors do that.
Re-installed the original power supply. Everything works fine.
