Online again again

I have been really really dumb.

I think.

Actually i'm not sure what happened.

Because of my upgrade and reinstalling woes I have had to ask for my passwords to be reset and had all but one done. Was getting a little anxious about my online debit card which I only use if I want to buy online. The password hadn't arrived and I needed to know how much was in my account as I had to pay for a purchase . Today I caught my email program (thunderbird) moving practically all my mail to the Junk folder. I don't know why it did this as I don't recall asking it to move anything much to the folder. Strange. You probably guessed the password reset info was in there. agh.

Procrastinating and Distractions

I should not be on the net. I should be working offline on my one hundred pages for the writing blog contest I signed up for. However when I sit down to write inspiration flies out the door.

It happens in other areas too. When I sit down to write in my blog for instance.

Before I wrote this post I spent some minutes fiddling with the colours and layout.

I actually prefer to talk rather than write . Talking is immediate you get feedback to keep you going. Writing is so static by comparison.

online again

I am finally back up and running after crashing my system by getting so carried away with my win2000 install that I surfed the net with no firewall only antivirus software on.

A trojan generator got through and trashed my system so badly I had to reinstall. And then I found that 2000 wont load if it doesn't like your system so had to change bits and pieces to find out what it was objecting to. Had to reinstall w98 to get back on the net to find out why 2000 was playing up.

After trial and error, and surfing forums, found out it was dirty ram that was the trouble. W2000 likes a clean system. All this took the better part of two weeks, during which time I was only on the net long enough to download needed software, as I hadn't performed a proper backup on to CDs, just moved my files onto the w98 partition while I installed 2000. agh

Have discovered there is no rediteller on the island so will have to ATM as little as possible.
