I killed My Computer

IMG_2116Well, I did it. I am normally so careful and today I broke my own rule and had my coffee next to the computer which I never do, of course I promptly knocked it over onto the computer. The computer appears to be dead it is covered with uncooked rice, a suggestion by friends. Because of this I may not post anything for a while until either I can pull a Victor Frankenstein and re-animate or get a new one. Hoping all of my information is not lost. Using my iPad to post this we will see how that works. Hope you all had a great Memorial Day that celebrate the holiday and that you have a great week.

Made an ice cream cake for the holiday and as soon as I get used to using an iPad I will post the recipe.

  2. Oh boy Suzanne, hopefully you can retrieve your information. A friend of mine dropped his IPhone into cookie batter. Good luck !

    May 30, 2017
    • Hoping I can, maybe it’s stored in the cloud will see. Thanks Gerlinde ❤️

  3. That may arrive, because nobody is perfect. So sorry for you, dear Suzanne. But your puppy is marvellous, and so is the Gorgeous CHocolate Cake! I do want a slice … just now.
    Do have a great Memorial Day –
    Bises et mes amitiés, hugs 🙂

  4. Sorry to hear! Hopefully it will recover, or at least you’ll be able to save the files. The cake is very tempting! 🙂

    May 30, 2017
    • Hi Ronit, I think it won’t recover but will give until the morning. At one point the screen started flashing then went black. The light doesn’t even come on now when the power cord is plugged in.😪😪😪

      May 30, 2017
      • That doesn’t sound good… However, I recommend taking it to a technician, as they can sometimes save info even from dead computers. Good luck! 🙂

  5. We need a sad button instead of a Like button sometimes. 😦 This is one of them. I had to buy a new computer less than a year ago. This morning I nearly tipped a bowl of cereal onto the keyboard. I feel your pain, Suzanne. The cake looks delectable and Percy looks adorable. He’s so good to pose for you. 🙂 You and Percy have a great week.

    • Thank you Mary, I have a iPad and phone but like working on the computer. A new one is very expensive, bad timing but it’s my fault for being clumsy. The cake is delicious and Percy is such a good sport!!

  6. Oh gosh! So sorry to hear that! Do let us know if the rice works. xxx

    May 30, 2017
  7. oh brother. good luck with that!

    May 30, 2017
  8. Ohhh no! Hope the rice works!! Looking forward to the ice cream cake recipe.

    May 30, 2017
    • I think I didn’t catch it quickly enough I don’t think the rice was successful. New computer I’m afraid😪

      May 30, 2017
  9. I hope it’s a case of recovery soon rather than RIP computer Suzanne.
    By the way, if a big fella in a full length black coat and a permanent scowl knocks at your door just tell him you promise to stop putting pictures of goodies at the top of your blogs. It must be sprouts from now on.so I don’t enter.

    • Well David if a big fella showed up at my door with a British/Welsh accent in a trench coat I would welcome him in and feed him, sprouts if he wanted or something a bit more naughty. Thank you I am afraid my computer is a goner. Maybe it will resurrect overnight.😘😘

      May 30, 2017

    Oh, so sorry about the computer! The cake looks great. I hope the rice might work!

    May 30, 2017
    • I don’t think the rice worked, it seems to have shorted out and is now dead, will see in the morning but it think it’s RIP Mac Air😪

    Oh my, so sorry to hear that! Keeping my fingers crossed for the rice to work. It might take a while you never know….

    May 30, 2017
    • I took it out of the rice I think it shorted out but will give until tomorrow morning. Thanks Aleksandra🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

      May 30, 2017
  13. That really sucks. 😦 Hopefully you can get it fixed or get a new one. Thankfully you have your puggy to cheer you up; that picture is adorable. 🙂

    May 30, 2017
  14. Sorry to hear you spilled coffee all over your computer….hopefully you’ll be able to either fix it or replace it…best of luck Suzanne! 🙂

    May 30, 2017
    • Thanks Linda’ my own clumsiness so I own the shame. It does hurt though to know I have to buy a new computer because of my carelessness😔

      May 31, 2017
      • I know. I’ve spilled a drink on my keyboard and had to replace it -I was lucky! Make sure you upgrade to a better computer!! 😊😊😊

        May 31, 2017
  15. oh, no!! I hope it works out for you – but it is very unfair to show us that pic w no recipe, lol!! I’m just about salivating over it! And Percy – what an absolute doll!!!

    • Lol, I have to get used to the difference posting from my iPad. I will post the recipe soon thanks so much😘

      May 31, 2017
      • I hope you know that was meant in a teasing tone! But that cake does look spectacular!

        May 31, 2017
      • Lol, yes I know.❤️❤️

        May 31, 2017
  16. The WORST. Hope you are able to get it back on track, Suzanne. Love Percy’s hat, of course. 🙂

    May 30, 2017
  17. The cake looks yummy, and Percy looks adorable. Hope you get your computer back working.

    May 30, 2017
    • Thanks Dyanna, the computer is dead now hoping I can retrieve my files.

      May 31, 2017
  18. Oh no Suzanne!!! Hope it all gets resolved soon…..this would definitely be a great excuse to have more cake!😘

    May 30, 2017
  19. oh no – I so feel with you, having just had more or less no computer for nearly 2 months (nothing to do with me really – some internal problem due to hour constant electricity problems) – lets hope you will be able to sort this out soon. Percy looks absolutely adorable – please do give him a hug from me.

    May 31, 2017
    • Thank you, feel disconnected without my computer even though I have other electronic devices.

      May 31, 2017
  20. Well as they say… CRAP! I sure hope it will be OK or that you can at least recover your data. The cake looks gorgeous, though. Hope all is well otherwise! xoxo

    May 31, 2017
    • Thanks Kathryn, the computer is dead will see if anything is recoverable.

      May 31, 2017
  21. Good luck!!!!

    Oh dear Suzanne! Hoping your data and stored files are not lost.

    May 31, 2017
  23. Oh my! I hope you could retrieve the files, Suzanne. That cakes looks delicious and that little one looks so cute!

    May 31, 2017
  24. Opps! Thats very sad. Hope you were able to recover the data. Hugs!

    May 31, 2017
    • Thank you, won’t know if anything is recoverable until I bring to the Apple Store.

      May 31, 2017
  25. Oh no Suzanne! This is when you wish you could just rewind the clock and skip the coffee spill! My laptop slid off my lap last fall and I had to replace the screen (top half). Ugh. It was distressing! And waiting on the chocolate/ice cream cake!! looks amazing! Perfect for a holiday treat~ Did you celebrate Memorial Day in your neighborhood?? You seem to know how to get all the neighbors together! Tell Percy he looks great!! hugs friend.

    June 1, 2017
    • Yes I wish I could rewind the day. I normally don’t keep any liquids near my laptop, that morning I was doing a favor for a neighbor and scanning a document for her, sat my coffee down while I hooked up the printer and the rest is unfortunate history. We had a wonderful holiday friends and neighbors came over we ate and had a great time. Thank you so much!!

      June 1, 2017
      • Hi Suzanne! I’ll bet they loved your ice cream cake. It just looked like a party. I’m anticipating the recipe once you get your laptop sorted out– hope it’s not too $$$ expensive! always love reading all you write… hugs!

        June 1, 2017
      • Thanks Rhonda, yes the ice cream cake was a hit!! Unfortunately I have to buy a new laptop and they are expensive. Ugh… learned a valuable and expensive lesson.

        June 1, 2017
      • So sorry Suzanne! We’ve been through this too. ugh. xox

        June 3, 2017
  26. Shoot Suzanne! I think I’d eat that whole beautiful cake if I killed my computer or maybe I’d just eat that beautiful cake!

    June 1, 2017
    • Hi Julie, ugh my computer is dead, nothing worked. The cake is a great stress reliever. Thank you so much!!

      June 1, 2017
  27. Sorry to hear about your computer! 😦 I’ve spilled some coffee and water before on my keyboard (not a heavy drench, but lighter spills)-a friend told me to turn the keyboard upside-down so it can “drain”–and that has worked for me-maybe something to try if it happens again!

    June 3, 2017
    • Thanks Nancy, it is a laptop so the liquid got into the computer wetting and shorting out the board. I love a laptop but if i had a desktop this would not have been so bad. Thank you I learned a lesson with this one!

      June 3, 2017
  28. Oops! I’m pretty sure the data can be retrieved — should be mostly the keyboard that is affected. Good luck!

    June 4, 2017
    • Thanks Stefan, I hope but it’s a laptop and the coffee seeped into the computer boards. Fingers crossed that apple can retrieve my documents.🤞🏻🤞🏻

      June 4, 2017
      • You could use a cloud service like Google Drive or iCloud so your files will never be lost when your computer dies.

        June 4, 2017
      • I am not sure if my files are saved on iCloud I can’t figure out how to access it. I know all my photo’s are on all of my devices but can’t seem to find where my documents are as they are not on my iPad. Thanks Stefan.

        June 4, 2017
  29. Oh no! All I can say is, I know how you feel. A few months ago my husband bought me a brand new MacBook. It was beautiful. My old one (8 yrs old) wouldn’t even turn on anymore. After having it about three days, I sat down to do some work on it, spilled my mug of tea all over it… I took it to the Apple Store, but they said they cover everything except water damage ( we had bought a $300 care program they offer). I still don’t talk about it… not sure what I’ll do. Im still using my husband’s mini iPad to do everything. It’s great, but nothing like my MacBook. I sure hope you get yours repaired!

    June 9, 2017
    • Oh no, my computer was about 8 yrs of but still worked great. I can’t imagine if it happened to a new one. I have to buy a new computer and hope they can somehow extract the data from the one I fried. I am so sorry to hear that, I also am using an iPad mini and hate it. Have to get a computer soon but they are expensive and I have to wait. I will never have a drink near a computer again. That is terrible that they wouldn’t cover the repair under the Apple care plan, I am so sorry to hear this.

      June 9, 2017
  30. I can relate to that. I always drink coffee besides the Mac. That cake looks to die for really! 🙂
    Good luck! x
