Sorted

      3 Comments on 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 »

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 »

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 »

Puffy

I couldn’t tell you why it amuses me, but that the wool has sort of developed a rounded shape on the top does at that. It also reminded me that the size of the cake has decreased enough that I can turn it on its side so it feeds through the spiral properly, so that has now been done. Huttah,… Read more »

I wasn’t sure what I was expecting with the Seasonal thing on Diablo III, but so far I am liking it. There’s something about having a structure that makes the game more enjoyable to me; it’s part of why I play lots of Legacy games in The Sims. The real question is going to be if I enjoy doing it… Read more »

Looty Loot Loot

It’s the last workday of the year, yay! And with that came a final divvy of presents from our various contractors. Since neither Z nor myself drink, we ended up with a choice selection of candy and biscuits (cookies for the non-Brits). I claimed the jellies for my own because I love jelly candy, while Z has made sure to… Read more »

The Thing is Did! Done!

      No Comments on The Thing is Did! Done!

Today, I officially am caught up on work. So unless Z needs me to do something tomorrow, I’ll check things over again on Friday and that’ll do for the week. It’s a relief to be back to this point, and hopefully I can keep it up. We’ll see. December shouldn’t be too bad, but January… well. In less celebratory news,… Read more »
