A Faltering Soldier

My Dell computer has served me well for about 8 years. I have thousands of songs, hundreds of pictures, and years of writing on it’s hard drive. Recently, Microsoft ended support for the Windows XP system. This rendered my computer vulnerable to all attacks, since the security system I gleefully used was Microsoft Security Essentials. Without the ability to update a security program, the fearsome enemy surrounded my abandoned general. His troops had left him alone in the battlefield. He was outnumbered, outgunned, and weak.

The evil Hun captured the general. They tortured him by subduing his old and weak memory, disabling him from performing even the simplest functions. They swallowed his faltering energy, invading his thoughts.

As a result, this once-powerful soldier must be laid to rest.

But there is hope. For a new General Toshiba is soon coming to lead the charge against the marauding forces. He is compact, quick-witted, strong, and able to absorb all of the necessary knowledge his predecessor had possessed.

Long story, short… I am retiring my Dell PC and replacing it with a new Toshiba laptop.
