Sorted

After a bit of drama today, my desktop is back to where it should be. Z went into the repair shop to buy the discounted Windows 10 code on offer… which didn’t work. He found me the live chat support for Windows, and amazingly? It was completely awesome and even more helpful than I imaged it would be. The tech… Read more »

No, I don’t have my tower back *quite* yet. This is a picture Z took when he was paying the shop, as one of the techs whipped off the side to show their handiwork. He reported that the shop guys were doing the proud artisan vibe over how tidy it came out, etc, and that made me smile. I’m always… Read more »

The Right Direction

The good news – the repair shopped called Z, my tower is ready for collection. He’ll bring it home with him after work tomorrow, so yessss. It was an initial £65 for them to look at it (fair), and the new motherboard ended up being £80. I tried to hand over all my birthday cash to cover what I could,… Read more »

Knackered

Z messaged me from the office today to let me know the diagnosis on my desktop — the motherboard was knackered. Whether it was a matter of timing, or a matter of me cacking something up… well, I guess I will know if Z remembers to ask them on pick-up. The cost is reasonable considering that yanno, the computer can’t… Read more »

Overdue Reorganisation

      No Comments on Overdue Reorganisation

Today, I managed to get body and brain working together enough to finally do my next step in getting the glass-fronted cupboard reorganised. My new, yet-to-be-read books are on the top shelf, as I’ve been doing for a couple of years now. I got all the books that had been clogging up my side table (two stacks about two feet… Read more »

Consolation Prizes

Z took the girls on a little outing this afternoon, and they brought me back pressies. They wanted to do something to help me feel a bit better about cacking up my PC, and it certainly made me smile. I also remembered this morning that there was a spare computer I could use. I was poking along on my netbook (which… Read more »

The State of My Soul

My new GPU came! I was excited, and got cracking on installing it… except what should have been an easy install broke something and I can’t figure out what. I and Z spent a few hours trying to figure out what the deal was, with no success. I think that we’re going to have to resort to asking our old… Read more »

Shinies!

This face, this is a happy face. This is a face that figured out how to use her Christmas bonus last night. Well, more that I finally talked myself around to buying the things that I wanted, and now I feel better for having done it. And what new shinies are entering my life? Well, I’ve decided to get the… Read more »

Meal With a View

There is a place near to ours that I have wanted to go to lunch at pretty much since I moved here. Today was finally that day, and what a day for a view. And I am most sincere in that — it was very pretty in a bleak sort of way, which is fitting with it being winter and… Read more »

Self-Inflicted

I am on the edge of a migraine right now — all because I wanted to read a wiki article. The problem is that the background on the wiki in question is black. I know I can’t really read things on black, but I REALLY wanted to read it and figured it might be worth the risk… I was wrong…. Read more »
