Well, I think you deserve some explanation and it’s also instructive.
Not that I’m complaining because many people have much worse problems. After Sunday’s Superbowl live blog I noticed some changes in the performance of my computer. The significant indicators were that all the websites I visited had invalid security certificates (even yahoo mail) and no Java enabled features would work.
So I spent a whole day (because that’s how long it takes) running virus scans (caught a few) and uninstalling and re-installing browsers and Java.
Since re-installing your prime OS is a pain in the ass, even if you have a backup, and can take even longer.
Monday night I spent a lot of time preparing for a format when I should have been sleeping, backing up all those piddly things like bookmarks and wallpaper and your last 2 weeks of writing that you ought but never get around to and then I dug out my amber preserved base and took a nap because it’s best to start these things fresh.
When I approached my machine I noticed the date was out of wack. That’s odd said I. So I changed it.
Problem solved (apparently).
It’s times like these I think myself a poor technician and blogger. Thank goodness I have TheMomCat who is always supportive even when I am stupid and lazy.
I apologize to my readers also. You put up with a lot of abuse and hardly ever call me on it.
