    Do you rent or borrow the computer you use?

      No. I’ve never even heard of computer rentals. Is that a thing?

    Maintain?  I'm supposed to maintain this thing?  Isn't that what cats are for?  I mean, everyday my cat walks over to the computer, gives it a thorough scan, then rubs twice on it.  I always assumed that meant it was good to go.

    Not knowing correct spelling doesn't happen due to lack of space.

    I pay for a program to maintain my computers. It runs a scan weekly, for viruses, spyware, fragmented files, etc. 

    I pay $50 a year for up to 5 devices.

    I've never paid anyone to do anything to my computers.  I struggle through, and that struggle is sometimes very real.  :)

    The desktop I built myself and any maintenance required I also do myself.
    The laptop and other portable devices is a job for a specialist.

    When I have issues, I just walk four blocks to the local Geek Shop. Their people do great work.

    Thanks for the reminder; it's (over)due for a service or a replacement.
