Oh, yay! fantomas71 is still alive and in the intarweb! "But, Solan", I can hear you say, "why the fook didn't you just call or send an email if you were worried?" Um... good question. Look! It's a white-headed snarfullump!
Oh, you just missed it.
Moving on. Some portion of my personality seems to have decided that sleep is for wimps and I am not a wimp. Various other parts of my personality beg to differ. The result has been me staying up reading one night and then staying up the next loading a program on to my son's new computer.*
Then, at about 3:30 am I woke with a pressing need to pee (as one does after too much ice water and a Brainiac Bomb with dinner). Having attending to this, I remembered that I had left Thomas' computer downloading a ginormous update to WoW and went to check on it.
Wait, wut? Why's it frozen at the load up screen? I had neglected to turn on a light, so I had to feel my way down to the reset button. Of course the computer informed me there had been an error in the last attempt at booting up, how did I want to boot? "Normal", thanks, but I promise to cross my fingers.
Boots up just fine and I see a pop-up stating that Window has updated and had needed to restart. Oh, well, that makes sense. Dad must of set it to completely automatic updates, as this computer was originally destined for his mother ("Little Granma", nowadays) and this was just a wise precaution. As Thomas' computer, it was still a wise precaution.
Right, then. On to the updates - I was expecting another really long one, so I planned to start it and go back to bed.
But it was a short one.
And so was the next one.
And the next one.
And then there weren't any more.
A good half an hour after I woke, I finally went back to bed.
Wise, I am not.
