The continuing saga of a dying computer
After yesterday’s excitement (not good excitement mind you), I finally have the PC back up and running. Yes, yes, yes. I know Macs never have this issue. I’m a PC type of guy. I doubt I’ll ever change.
So I wound up reinstalling Windows 10. Then reconfigured Windows. Then reinstalled all my apps. Then reconfigured all my apps. Argh! Lots of time lost.
Thankfully, no data lost. Jay (yes, the J in JR is short for Jay, thrilling, I know) is a chronic paranoid and backs up data. The SSD that’s the master boot disk, and the one that was corrupted, only holds windows and the applications. All data, my documents, my downloads, my pictures, my music…you get the point, are all on other drives. Much of that data is backed up on external drives. So yeah, in the event of a catastrophic event, I could somewhat easily recover.
And recover I have. And, by the way, if one day you happen to wake up and find yourself in an existential quandary full of loathing and self-doubt and wracked with the pain and isolation of your pitiful meaningless existence, at least you can take a small bit of comfort in knowing that somewhere out there in this crazy mixed-up universe of ours, there’s still a little place called…Albuquerque
There’s always room for Weird Al lyrics in a blog post, I feel.
So more news? Probably not tonight. Jay needs to get to that writing stuff I wasn’t able to get to last night. It’s waiting for me, calling my name. And it’s also more of the news I’ll tell you about tomorrow!
Until Next Time!
P.S. Don’t forget I’m still in a book bundle This deal won’t last forever! https://storybundle.com/scifi
