As much as I like that song by Dave Matthews, I don't like crashes by any other name. This is especially true when it comes to laptop computers like the family computer shown above.

This time it was my blackberry. It happened while I was attempting a software upgrade. Sometime during the usual process, an error came up on the computer screen and then the phone's display turned white and refused to work no longer. Its taken 4 hours to reload software, and another 3 hours to get the phone's features back to where I like them

There was a major casualty in all this. My phone book of contacts was well maintained but not backed-up. I didn't have to start completely over , but it was close.

So you may want to call, text, or email me if you still want to hear from me from time to time.
