Hello World!

Ever have one of those days when your computer just will not co-operate? My PC had a serious bad hair day today.

It started off by angrily accessing its hard drive and CD-ROM incessantly. Programs loaded slowly, if at all. When I finally succeeded in coaxing the thing online, it growled at me and refused to check my email. Internet access was slow, and caused the thing to crash altogether after about ten minutes.

So this afternoon, I gave it some TLC. I updated all my programs and ran a full virus scan. I cleared out ancient downloaded files I'd forgotten about that were cluttering up space. I cleared caches, temp files and cookies. It will have to wait for a nice hard drive defragmenting until I go to sleep, because I'm an impatient little so-and-so. Touch wood, it seems to have done the trick.

Last night, I finished the new book I'd been reading 'Peril's Gate' by Janny Wurts. The worst thing about finishing an excellent book like this, is the knowledge that I'll have to wait about 2 years for the next in the series to appear, so I can find out what happens next. I may just go insane from the anticipation in the meantime. And read the whole 'Wars of Light and Shadows' series all over again several times. And desperately hope that this magnificent author types very very fast.
