Then There Were Four

      No Comments on Then There Were Four

I didn’t expect to be settling up Littler’s laptop today. But then, I also didn’t expect to be disturbing her little plant pot. Poison was on the table and I was giving her some pets and brushing, and instead of moving the plant to safety, I just tried to move it to a higher spot on the desk… which didn’t… Read more »

The Things I Do (For Retro Gaming)

      No Comments on The Things I Do (For Retro Gaming)

Today, I had Littler home with pinkeye. She was in good spirits otherwise, and Z acquired some eyedrops from the surgery so that she isn’t stuck home with it for more than today. Between that and work, I kept busy for that allotted time of the day. After that, I’ve been driving myself around the bend installing old OSes via… Read more »

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

      No Comments on 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 »

The Tiniest Kidnapper

      No Comments on The Tiniest Kidnapper

Smalls insists that Littler was trying to kidnap her here. I’m not sure how that would actually work, even accounting for how strong Littler is. Still, it was cute, so slap a few stickers on it, and it’s brutally kawaii, ha ha. I’m feeling really anxious today for some stupid reason. Yes, I have the LEEP/LEETZ tomorrow, but I am… Read more »
