Photo stolen from Google - because all mine are gone
We are gathered here today to pay our respects to the computer that was an integral partner in the blog "Doves Today," who passed away after an unexpected but critical accident, resulting in the demise of certain hardware elements.
No cause has yet been determined for this sudden demise, though it was heralded by the Blue Screen of Death.
It was a good computer, with many friends and acquaintances. It was dedicated to its job, and served faithfully for at least 6 months. Or at least, up until its Limited Warranty had expired.
Survivors are - well, nothing, unless we can salvage the hard drive. Do not send condolences to the email address associated with the blog "Doves Today" - it cannot be accessed until its account holder figures out how.
Condolences are welcome in the comments at http://www.doves2day.blogspot.com/.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to educational institutions that train people to install backup systems.
Date and time of Internment, Reception and Wake, with refreshments, to be announced.
