I was sorting through my daughter’s discarded items that she placed in a box after she cleaned her room. At the same time, I was thinking about my blogging tips post today.
When a computer starts to “act up” and all the normal remedies do not work, I reboot the system. To “reboot” means to turn the computer off and on again thus allowing it’s operating system and all the programs to reload in the correct order with all the proper coding.
A computer can not work properly unless the operating system is loaded first then all the software afterwards. Rebooting allows this to occur.
The term “reboot” is derived from the word”bootstrap” which you probably have heard in the saying, “Pull yourself up by the bootstraps.”
A bootstrap is a loop, tab or handle at the top of a boot which allows for more of a grip and power to pull on a boot.
So pulling yourself up by the bootstrap means that you get yourself together to complete a task that feels impossible without the aid of anything except for your own power.
It is important to reboot your computer frequently. If you turn your computer off each day, you don’t have to worry about rebooting because it happens each time you turn your computer on.
As I rummaged through Alyssa’s junk, I doubted that I would find anything that I could use until I got to the very bottom of the box.
I quickly slipped on some fuzzy boots that looked virtually new. They fit perfectly and are so comfy!
I have officially been rebooted.
Yes, I’m still wearing pajamas. Cute with the boots, huh?
