…And the drama continues!

While working on the Chitas very late one night
Suddenly the plug felt hot – something wasn’t right.
We unplugged it right away, but when we plugged it back
Nothing happened at all – the whole plug was burned and black.

Now the clock was running fast, the battery was running out
We finished the Chitas as fast as we could, and finished it no doubt.
We then took the laptop into the store to see if it could be repaired
A few hundred dollars they told us – but that wasn’t what made us scared!
They had to send it away to be fixed, expect it back in a week
But we need to do Chitas EVERY DAY – now we’re up a creek!

We rented a laptop to use, and it took quite a while for us
To use our backup to work on the Chitas, so it was late despite all the fuss.

Then that rented laptop started to act weird, the pointer would jump and shake
We had to take it back to the store – boy did that feel like a mistake!
They couldn’t really help, but lent us a mouse, hoping that would work fine
After a half hour of troubleshooting it did – but that half hour of time was MINE!
So again the Chitas was sent out late, we didn’t have much choice today
We hope that Hashem will help out now, and make everything work right away!

PHEW!

Technical Difficulties…

The more obstacles in the way of a good thing, the more important you realize it is!

As soon as (very literally) we got ahead 2 days in Chitas, the computer developed a problem that wouldn’t allow it to get any power. It’s now being sent in for repair, and it turns out that it takes HOURS to restore a backup onto a rental computer!

Nu – Boruch Hashem we haven’t missed a day of Chitas due to this latest fiasco, but we are sorry for the send times being all over the place!
