I rose this morning determined to write at least one reasonable article using my brand new, high-powered, HP computer (arrived Friday). I should have guessed it would not be a good day when the doorbell rang as I was stepping out the shower, and after hastily throwing a robe over my still-dripping form, I answered the door to two inanely grinning Jehovah’s Witnesses desiring to discuss “global issues”. After politely – well, reasonably – telling them where to stick their global issues at 9.00 on a Sunday morning, I breakfasted before seating myself at the sleek, shiny monster gently humming on my workdesk.
After a quick surf around the blogs I decided to check my mail on Outlook Express. It was then disaster struck. The damned thing seized up. After rebooting umpteen times only to seize again whenever I tried to open O.E., I spent the rest of the day and into the evening attempting to sort out the problem.
It’s fixed. After five ‘system restores’, uninstalling the software I spent all yesterday installing, and finally getting it all loaded back in again – it’s working.
Unfortunately, I’m not.
It’s 9.10, I have to be up at 5.00am and I’m totally k-knackered.
I’m off to bed. Goodnight all!
