Dead in the Water. πŸ˜’

My laptop finally destabilised its Wndows 10. The most recent update hosed it up. Uninstalling the update didn’t help. Doing a system restore failed to complete. Suffuce to say that I ended up doing a complete resetting of the laptop. Spent all day with this. I really just need a real PC not a laptop, unless a better laptop would suffice, but I doubt it.

Well. I am rightly screwed. I did a complete reset of the laptop. Now all it does is boot to the HP logo screen, then shuts down and reboots again, and again, and again. It won’t even go into safe mode or into automatic repair mode. It is stuck in an endless rebooting loop. I am completely dead in the water. I cannot do all I need to do on my mobile. My important data are safe on my external drives. But all is useless without a computer. I do not have the disposable income necessary to replace the computer.

Today is over. I will sleep. Maybe I will wake up to $1000 in my PayPal account. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

But I somehow doubt it. I really don’t know how I will be able to continue my work. Goodnight. 😴😑😴😑😴

Too Angry To Accomplish Anything Useful Today. πŸ˜£

I am starting to see businesses that are requiring the wearing of masks. According to CDC guidelines, I should not have to wear one. Sprint refused to serve me until they gave me a mask to wear. I. Am. Absolutely. Livid. If I did not need their service, I would have told them to go screw themselves. When asked, they hid behind “corporate policy”. I told them that they were violating my rights and I will be calling corporate about it. I say, boycott all businesses that require their customers to wear masks. 😣😠

Technical Difficulties.  😣

Windows 10 is acting up.  Should have the problem resolved by tomorrow, I hope.  Meanwhile, this work day has consisted of continuing to organise my physical Arthuriana books and making sure that they are indeed part of the Grand Bibliography.  Sometimes various lists, notes, and other scribblings do not match.  Being OCD really helps in my ongoing efforts to make every aspect consistent. Tomorrow (Thursday) is still an off day. Friday is scheduled to be the last work day of the month. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Developed Influenza over the past 18 hours. Not going to get much accomplished today except Doctor Who this evening.

Suffice it to say that my friend was a carrier. I will sleep until I have to leave to get to the one-night-only Doctor Who event at 7pm at the local theatre.

Hopefully I will feel better soon. I hate unannounced interruptions in my life. I do my best to be considerate and mindful of others. Too bad that it is rarely reciprocated. Until next time, true believers.

Excalibur! πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜€πŸ˜Ž

Had a productive day.

Now have 731 sources. Manuscript is 1134 pages. Saturday is still my off day (day of rest).

Do not forget to visit Remember, do NOT use Firefox, it is STILL buggy. Have not heard from Mozilla/Firefox yet at all. Website displays properly in all browsers EXCEPT FOR FIREFOX. 😠

See you all on Sunday. πŸ˜€πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜€

Didn’t get much done at all today.

Discovered that the newest Firefox has a bug. It will not display hierarchies properly. It mixes up and repeats some of the letters and numbers. This completely derailed me in the past 3 hours. So I really don’t have any reasonable update today in terms of The Introduction maniscript. I had an appointment earlier in the day. Then I ate. Really thought I would have a productive evening. There is always tomorrow.

Take care everyone! 😎
