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. 😴😑😴😑😴

First Official Work Day of November 2021.

Still immersed in that Mythology Dictionary from two months ago. I may indeed have to add another year to the publishing schedule (Introduction volume being published in June 2024 instead of how it is presently listed on the website as June 2023). We shall see how things go after the first of the year. Until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

In the Ideal World …

… there are three of everything. I do my best in terms of adhering to that maxim. It is especially important to me when I find scans of rare and important texts. I do my utmost to have three of everything within that arena. I backup data to two separate locations. So today was mostly concentrating on having both physical and digital copies of source texts. 😁

The Grand Bibliography has 2152 sources. The manuscript is 1284 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
