computers aggravate me.
I toil and toil and toil and still can't get stupid computers to work. At the present moment, I should be sleeping but instead am trying to get two computers to work. One of them is Joe's new computer, which looks like it has been trying to load up XP for ages. The other one is the laptop my mother loaned me, on which I am reinstalling Windows '98 for the umpteenth time it seems. I'm really not looking forward to that exam next week. It seems like there's so much to do before then. Ah, and it would seem that Joe's laptop has locked up yet again. Great. Time to reset it, yet again, and to hope that *this* time it actually boots up.

Well, at least Friends, Will and Grace, and the new show - they were all funny tonight. Oh and look, it just froze up AGAIN. And look, it's quarter to midnight, and I should get up at 5:30 or so. That will most likely not happen, of course. OH and look, it just froze up yet again. Hello???? Okay, let's try "safe mode", maybe that will work. I always eventually get it to work but I always manage to forget how I got it to work. How unfortunate. I'd like to have an operating system that just always worked and didn't give me such a hard time all the time.

Well, safe mode worked. Just did a system restore. Have to love system restores. They're awfully kind and gentle, when they work. I hope it works this time. I should stop yelling at computers. Well, at least I didn't call it any bad names tonight. Yeah, that made it sound all that much better.

feeling: : aggravated aggravated

That is VERY creepy. My laptop was loned to me and it also has Windows 98 :) (and The Sims!) My old laptop which my step-brother gave me DIED. It was sad. Lots of documents lost (forunately my story was saved elsewhere). I feel your pain, or rather, I did. Have a good holiday, and for two wonderful days, forget all about computers that crash for no reason.

*hugs*

How strange! the sims is one of my most favourite games.

i'm so careful about where I save my writing, and have multiple copies of everything. I wrote a children's book when I was young and only had it on Apple II GS format and lost it, unfortunately - but still have paper copies of the first 1/3 - "book one of three" as it were.

l' shana tova to you as well. may your new year be sweet and full of simcha.

I stopped watching Friends when they put Chandler and Monica together. Now everyone is hooked up together. It should be called significant others, not friends.

I watched Survivor tonight. The backstabbing and conniving is more entertaining to me. :)

'tis okay, one of my best friends, a computer programmer, has a mac. She said 'it's cute and it never crashes'. Sounds good to me.

Is it just me or did anyone else forget how to type after Yom Tov? *constantly pressing 'delete'*

actually that never happens to me. probably from a life of being on the computer all the time from when I was about in fifth grade or so. what did happen to me was that my inbox was clogged up with spam from fake microsoft updates that made all my mail bounce - fabulous. :(

coming up on two years now. I wrote an article about it for "go inside" magazine (www.goinside.com) - it has been quite an interesting experience. :)
