Do not leave me unattended with your computers. Or your teeth.
My laptop has been cranky lately, and most specifically since I tried to install updates for SpySweeper. Apparently, trying and failing to update SpySweeper will cause your laptop to freeze. Okay. So, since my laptop wasn't looking like the most stable piece of equipment ever, I thought it might be a good idea to back up my harddrive. Except then I discovered that the CD drive wasn't working. Like, at all.
I dropped my laptop off at SCS Help this morning so that it could be repaired and went back to my office to use my desktop machine. Only to discover that it had what appeared to be a virus. All of the text had turned into unreadable nonsense characters. Fun for the whole family. I called the help desk and they sent someone over to take it away. He seemed to think it was a bad video card. (Actually, when he called me later, he said he couldn't find anything wrong with it and rebooting seemed to fix the problem. Which I find very sketchy.)
So now I had no computers. All of my computers were broken. I went down to the lab to check my email, where I promptly caused the computer I was using to freeze up. dlv78
kindly made me an account on a spare Powerbook. I suspect he's still trying to win me over to the Mac side.
Since today is clearly not my day, I went home to sulk, taking the Powerbook with me. Where I also managed to cause it to freeze up while watching a DVD. Fortunately, power-cycling seemed to take care of that.
But seriously, this is 4 computers in less than 12 hours. I am extraordinarily talented.
As for my teeth... ( Collapse )
I'm having a bad week.
