panik: (Screwed)

My computer started to behave very erratically last week. I ignored it - hoped for the best (the way you do). Anyway, my laissez-faire bit me in the bum over the weekend. The comp was logging me off whenever I got online, then randomly flashed up loads of windows, at the speed of light. Mark and I went through everything; made all the usual checks, took it back to old pre-problem settings - didn't work - then tried it in safe mode, when it promptly went into meltdown with the cursor refusing to obey commands; making the comp. totally unusable.

So today I had to back everything up (ha! she laughed hollowly), strip it down and re-install windows. Which seems to have done the trick and cured the thing, but I've lost so much that I forgot to back-up; all my bookmarks, my email archive... other stuff... ::sniff::

So, I'm functioning and online again, but it's going to take me weeks to restore everything I've lost. ::is very sad:: )o:


OTOH, one of the contestants on Britain's Top Dog tonight is called Pinga...  In Cuba, that means Penis... Penis the dog... ::snort, snicker, heh heh heh heh::
Mood:: 'giggly' giggly
