So what have I been up to over the weekend?
It’s that time of year when I contemplate the joys of hibernation. Why humans can’t just wrap up in a ball and sleep until April, I don’t know. Mind you, I know a few people who make a damned good attempt.
I spent most of the weekend starting into space while Herself’s laptop did things.
I used to use that laptop, but it began to annoy me. It had developed a somewhat psychotic personality and I decided to get rid of it. I gave it to Herself. I thought it would be a match made in Heaven.
Lately however she has been complaining about it. She says it takes half an hour to load up. That was a gross exaggeration though. I timed it and it only took 25 minutes.
I was getting tired of the complaints, so I decided to strip it down and reload everything.
I have done this kind of thing before. I have loaded Windows 3.1 when it came on two floppy disks. Those were the days. I couldn’t find the floppy disks for Windows 3.1 so I had to make do with a CD thing for Windows XP.
What with backing up things and formatting things, I spent most of my time staring out the window, as I said. I even went down for the papers at one stage, and came back to find 30% had turned into 35%.
It’s done now. It’s going like the clappers, and seems to be behaving itself.
Herself is not pleased though. She’s still complaining.
She admits it’s faster….
But she can’t get into eBay any more.
