Most of you aren’t aware of this, but my computer has been shutting itself off alot lately. This was Shawn’s computer prior to it becoming mine. I have no idea why it does this, but it always seems to shut off while I am in the middle of a post or uploading photos. Finally after the One Millionth time of doing this, it finally opened a browser window and said:
