It time to save money to buy a new computer. A new computer cost under 500 dollars.
Save 50 dollars a month. You can buy a new computer in 10 month.
A new computer is a good investment making money online.
I wish I could invest in a new computer, but I can't. I don't make enough on these sites to save $50 a month and I couldn't find another job 6 years ago when mine went to another country. Then I had a 2 major hospitalizations with surgery 2 years apart so with my disability, walking and standing are a problem. At my age, I don't qualify for most surveys and can't do a lot of the offers. I'm only on SS and it stays in the bank for all the bills. My cable/internet/phone alone is $180/mo. Crazy? No. Disgusting? Yeah. Add in electric, health and life insurance, and the SS is almost gone. Just this week, the fuel pump on the car just went kaplooey. Need that fixed now and property taxes are due. I have to eat, too, ya know.
I've lived under a "black cloud" all my life. Why change it? At least I still have a decent attitude, but thanks for your suggestion.
Have you cut down cable and phone? If your computer gone? You making money online is gone? Just use the internet only.
You save 100 dollars a month by dumping cable and phone.
Soon it later. Alll Major browsers will stop supporting WIndow xp and you have no choice to switch lLnux. Your computer became useless since no browser support xp.
I've thought about dumping the cable and phone but I need some kind of entertainment when I relax. I've thought about the satellite systems but one son states they're price is only when signing up. Fees keep rising. Since I don't live in town, it would be hard to get rid of phone. That's the only contact I have with the outside. I don't live in town, either, so that makes a difference. No, I have no plans on moving. Maybe when I wind up in a nursing home but I'll fight it all the way.
Chrome already stopped supporting XP. They want a higher Windows upgrade. It's a ripoff to have to upgrade all the time. I like my XP and been using it since it came out because my job required it. I've heard of Linus and checked into it a little but after working on Windows for 20-plus years, I don't know if I could learn it. I will check into it again, though.
I lost all my savings/IRA/pension $$ in the 2008 crash. This is the kind of life I've always had but I am not really complaining. I have learned what happens, happens, and to live with it.
Did I tell you I am trying to sell my cemetery lots, but no one is biting. Gee, I wonder why?
