Alas, poor Orac. He’s dead. That PC wouldn’t voom if you put 1.21 gigawatts of electricity through it. It’s pushing up the daisies and it’s joined the choir invisible. It can’t even get to the CMOS settings. It’s dead, with a capital dead. Naturally, right now is when I happen to need to scan a lot of stuff. 🙄 Fortunately a replacement is on the way, probably in even better shape than Orac was when I first got it. Really, it’s kinda silly if you think about it – when did I start needing three different computers in close proximity? Yikes. Just go ahead and assimilate me.
Speaking of computer-related misfortunes: I. Hate. IE7. And the whole thing about how it’s supposedly easy to step back to 6 seems to have been misreported: it’s sure as hell not easy for me, and I want that digital hellspawn gone from my machine. Argh. If I wanted a browser to act like Firefox, y’know, I’d just download bloody Firefox. This one was not ready for prime time, and at least on my machine, it’s very unstable – what good is tabbed browsing if the thing crashes and takes all my tabs with it?
Ah well. It’s Friday (actually, technically speaking, it’s Saturday now). It’s the end of my work week. It’s almost Christmas. I should go look at my own kitten pics and cheer the heck up. Actually, scratch that – I’m gonna go home and look at the kitten in the pics.
