Roman

woooo

I am SO much better. Yesterday I had a sandwich at Borders, had no ill after-effects. I slept through the night without having to get up several times. I feel almost completely well.

If it isn't one thing

It's Windows.

I was having troubles with getting anything to load in either browser this morning, after having successfully finished one of my online classes, closed IE, then reopened it. There was nothing amiss with the cable connection. Everything seemed to be loading but nothing was there. IE has been troublesome of late, so when I inadvertently tried to use it to open a web location from FILE -> open, it stalled. Nothing's for it when this happens, which has been happening of late, so I finally had to restart the computer.

I got the message that I had not shut it down correctly, and scandisk started to run, but I bypassed it. I think, right now, maybe I should never bypass it. I later tried to defrag, was unable to do so because "there are errors on drive C:". So I had to go run scandisk after all, and, horror of horrors, scandisk said C:\Windows was screwed up, unusable, needed to be fixed, and the fix is to rename it...

Well, I knew the consequences, or likely consequences, of renaming windows. So I inserted a disk to make an undo disk, which scandisk attempted to make three times, each time giving me an error message that C:\windows needed to be fixed...which I knew...finally I skipped the repair, went to the C: prompt, typed win, got back to windows. IMmediately I opened Qrecovery and restored yesterday's configurations, restarted, and here I am again, none the worse, it seems, for wear. At least it wasn't fatal. It's just an indication that all is not well here in judycomputerland.

No, not quite true. I can get to the control panel but can't open "System". It's missing a file. Of course. Lots of files missing.

I got to System after all. Found a copy of the file I needed on another drive, copied it over. Sometimes it actually is simple.

well all right

For now, browsing is working. For now, I feel well.

What do I have? All I have is now.

Ergo...

Silly of me, but I went ahead and said it anyway.

I managed to finish one section of an online class, revise and send off minutes of a meeting, after I made some changes to the router config because the browser loading wasn't going well - but the user guide refers to these changes as "temporary measures", refers to the linksys web site for more info, but I have a hellish time finding what I want on that web site. Good router, bad documentation, that's my opinion.
