half a day


today, as of mid-afternoon or so, I have spent most of the time (like about six hours so far) working on Sally's computer... after deciding (with the help of several tech support people including a couple of supervisors and specialists) that it's broken (the ultimate technical diagnosis, ya know), I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled everything... some things, like the USB DSL connection, had to be installed manually due to glitches in the installation wizards (the first install required a house call by a technician)... time consuming... then, since Sally's got a Gateway (sounds like a song, huh?... but never buy a Gateway) and the recovery CD is is a massive drive image (on two disks, no less) instead of individual files and what's worse, it's a few years old (at least), more than 20 critical updates were needed from the MS website... so I downloaded and installed all of those and then I downloaded and installed a spyware program to try to protect the computer better... and then I kinda fooled the Norton server into giving an additional six months of free virus definition file updates so the computer now has the most up to date updates and will for the next six months so I hopefully will not have to go through this again... it still needs a firewall though... it's doing the incredibly long defrag process right now... I'd really rather be giving my own problems attention after all (I can create some for myself if I get too bored with the needless life I live)...

sigh, alas, really... fact is, all this giving of time and energy to others can drain the internal batteries after a while, especially since there's no reciprocal receiving of personal energy going on... but the second best overall feeling I know is giving and helping others and it is the best overall feeling I can give myself alone (probably ranks about fourth or fifth physically, but ethereally it's second only to sharing which is something I can not do alone), so I do it all I can... sometimes I need to be reminded to check my batteries though...

so I ordered some food... yeah, I know I am supposed to be living economically to save some money cuz I've got a zillion bills to pay this month (speaking of those, maybe that is what i should do once I finish with Sally's computer), but so?... splurging is more fun when you are not supposed to, so the food will obviously taste better... eggplant rolatini, salad, spaghetti, garlic bread, in case you're interested... but yes, the bills would be a wise move today... isn't this a fun day off so far?...

and just as I the food arrives and I am about to eat, Sally gets home and out come the cats... they were in his bedroom while he was at work because Eddie got sick a couple of times and I was not going to spend my days off following around and cleaning up after him, especially since we just got the carpet cleaned a couple of days ago... Helen's three cats and dog have so much healthier habits and better manners than Eddie and Lil Bit... Eddie's nickname is stinky, given by our noses... anyway, I watched some college football (what with ten fantasy sports teams to manage, I keep in touch with sports these days... it's something to do) while eating and staring down the beggers...

maybe I'll get to the bills (which would mean some cleaning) later, can you stand the excitement?

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...

you know that box to the right on the dland entry page called recent public entries?... what do the asterisks mean?... and the bold?...
