Praying for a Computer

I don’t know if you have ever prayed for a computer but right now I am.  Our computer is lost!  Yes, lost.

On Friday of last week our store computer developed a problem and we had to ship it to Connecticut to be fixed. Now this is out Point of Sale computer with all our inventory, prices, customer history, sales. etc.  An empty, damaged retaped box arrived at the destination.  Missing is the computer and the backup tape that was included.  UPS, HOW COULD YOU!  This is not funny and the offer of replacement value does not cut it.  What is missing is invaluable. 

This is a high blood pressure and ulcer situation!   This week we have been doing hand tickets and scrambling to find all the info and prices we need.  We have limped through and made it workable for the short-term.  But it has totally crippled the parts department as all the location of parts is in that computer.  We have drawers and drawers full of parts but need the information in that computer to find them.  It is not like my side of the store.

So, I am asking you to help me pray for my lost computer that it can be found in the “Overgoods” (lost & found) Department of a UPS location. UPS is searching but I am asking God in His all-knowing wisdom to help them find it.

    Pat,

    We are so sorry to hear about this. I’m a retired IT manager and I will be glad to advise you on what can be done in the future to back up all your data very inexpensively. I use a company called Carbonite for around $10 per month (maybe more for a commercial account but there are ways around that), plus I use an external backup drive to store backups on. It was very inexpensive as well and I plug it into each of our computers about every 2 or 3 weeks. I won’t charge you anything as you have helped us with advice in the past with our gardening.

    If the computer is recovered or not, I’ll be glad to give you my 2 cents on what to do next or in the future.

    P.S. We are the couple you advised on the house plant insect problem a week or two ago.
