In case anyone is wondering, I have had PC issues for the past two (2) weeks. That means I have been downloading, configuring and re-loading software onto my main machine. Yes, I have a laptop, no I don’t really like to use it as much as my main machine. This is mainly because it is a difference of approximately 30 WPM 60 vs. 90 WPM. Come on, which would you choose? Yeah, I thought so.
So, for the record:
No. I am not ignoring you. I do confess there are days when I might like to place some of you on ignore, but for the most part I am very good about responding to people. Two (2) weeks ago yesterday I wiped my entire hard drive due to a malware / virus called Skynet. There is no easy cure for this except to reformat the HD. And when you make backups, it likes to hide in places where you don’t suspect it so you reinfect yourself or infect a backup PC. Be very careful with this one. I am on dialup so I have been running this thing nearly 24/7 on a connection that gets 44.0 Kbps maximum.
No. I have not forgotten about the Rep that I owe you and your muse. I promise I will get to it when everything starts to settle down. This should be any minute now.
Yes, we missed a week of prompts on . We posted them Monday. This Labor Day Weekend is our Second Anniversary and rhis is the first time in two years, btw, that we have missed posting prompts. My suggestion is to simply deal with it. Real Life happens.
Yes, I do have IMs via Trillian back up and operational on my main machine. IRC is a bit iffy for Kemet chats, but hey. I will figure it out. Now, if I could just remember the “perform” commands that I used to have upon connecting to the server.
No, I do not have logs from the past that I can get to. That should be fixed soon, however.
Yes, I was able to save my nearly 60 GB of iTunes and get them of my PC from my iPod – thanks to a little program called Copy Trans If you have an iPod, spring for it. You won’t be sorry.
Tweetdeck has not been downloaded yet. No Tweeting for me for nearly a week. Sorry all my #followfriday friends. I miss you all.
Conversely, my browser (Safari) that is dedicated mainly to Facebook is also not re-loaded on my machine yet. I will get it ASAP. Until then you all will have to continue on in that vapid space without me. 😉
If I have missed anything, please *gently* let me know. The next person who hurls accusations of my not caring or “being a bad friend” will be forced to go through exactly what I have gone through in the last two weeks and see how their stress to life ratio measures up. My guess is that there are few who would be able to go through this much better than I have.
One good thing, I have more HD space because I got rid of all of the programs and stuff that did no one any good at all. That part feels great. 🙂
That is all. 🙂
