I’m back … I Think

This morning my computer suffered a catastrophic failure. It’s suffering from heat problems, and when it crashed it corrupted the registry. After several frustrating hours I’ve been able to repair Windows to the point that at least it’s working again.

But in the mean time I was extremely disappointed to discover a vitriolic comment left behind which was to be expected I suppose. But what I didn’t expect was it would come from someone who I had considered to be a friend. You just never know in the blogosphere do you. It was embarrassing because for several hours I was unable to do anything about it. I couldn’t respond when I was offline, nor could I hide the comments like Blogger is supposed to be able to when I came back online. It’s not something that I like to do but under the circumstances I felt I had no choice but to remove it.

I’m still in the process of restoring Windows service packs, but whether or not the system will remain stable enough to continue normal blogging is anybody’s guess. Clearly I need a new a computer but the finances just aren’t there right now.

  3. Oh I hope your computer holds out. I’d miss you if you couldn’t blog.

    Boyfriend leaned back in his office chair earlier and knocked the laptop off the table. Good thing it was the old one!

  4. Take a break Bloke !

    The events of the past three days were not easy to digest - even for me.

    Go out - take a long walk or take the bus to nowhere - get some fresh air !

  6. Sorry to hear of your PC troubles Blog Bloke. I understand your anxiety - a while ago my daughter wrecked my laptop by pouring a cup of tea over the keyboard, right while I was in the middle of an important project for work…

    If your problems are software related, you may want to visit http://www.castlecops.com/. The forums here have been of great use to me in the past, and there are loads of excellent quality downloads here which could help your PC run a bit more smoothly.

    Hope you and your computer are feeling much better soon :)
