Egads, I must be cursed.
I'm working up my next show, and my computer decides it wants to freak-out on me. At least this time it's not a hardware fault. Stupid thing wants to reboot every 6 minutes and 15 seconds (+/- 3 seconds). Yeah, I did a couple of things wrong, and now I'm paying for it. I should have made recovery discs, but I didn't. Luckily all my data is securly backed up. I've ordered a set of recovery discs from HP. When those come in, I'm going to wipe everything and start over.
With any luck, I'll be able to reinstall the OS without all of the advertising crap that came with the computer. I don't want to try AOL free for 3 months. I don't want a trial version of whatever stupid personal financial package that was there. I don't want all the stupid lame games. I just want a computer and the OS. Everything else I'll install myself.
Anyway, the next show is coming together nicely. I do have a back-up computer I can still created it with, so no delays there. Also, I might have to make another entry later this week. I've been offered a couple of "goodies
" by someone we all know and love. I'll let you know if it happens.
