I’m writing this post at my apartment complex’s computer/business room because my PC appears to either be dead or dying or something. After fiddling with the thing for two hours this morning, it’s still not running.
Earlier, I went online in the computer room to see if I might be able to troubleshoot the problem. To no avail. Jokingly out of frustration I posted a grouse on my Facebook page about considering going back to my typewriter, a machine that’s almost 50 years old.
A friend of mine responded to my grouse by sending me a link to a story that Cormac McCarthy is putting up his typewriter for auction. The typewriter’s just now worn out after 50 years of producing novels, short stories and screenplays. No viruses have plagued McCarthy. No hard disk has crashed.
Anyway, here’s a link to the article:

This was supposed to post yesterday. But the machine decided not to do it. At least it saved it.
