These are middle-aged geek reminiscences. Old geeks reminisce about Basic, FORTRAN, and COBOL. And punch cards. And wiring sorter boards.

The one goblin baby. I was generous; it's probably more like 0.13.

Since my haunted machine is running slow on downloads and file saves, I decided to clean up unused files on the main drive. It has a 921MB capacity. Windows disk cleanup promised to free 4TB of space by deleting junk files.

Disk of holding?

It's Oladon's fault, I'm sure.

I found some nice utilities to fix a Windows computer and was trying them on my haunted Windows 10 machine. The first one ran clean. The second one said another scan was running. What was running? Task mgr says: Windows 10 update. They just pushed an emergency update (forced) in the middle of my diagnostics. Now the update seems to be failing, then hanging. I downloaded the msu to run manually and decided to restart before installing to get a clean set of services without failed update statuses hanging about. So when I clicked the restart option: "Getting Windows ready. Don't turn off your computer." And it's been spinning for 10 minutes. >_< I think Microsoft gets Windows ready by handing it a tube of lube. Not even drinks and dinner, man.

Looks like they pushed an emergency update for Win 10 after the fun Anniversary Update fiasco. Geek news is full of the story. Update KB4015438, if you're interested.

In the middle of diagnostics.

Without notification or confirmation.

Microsoft! *shakes fist*

No, but it's good to be done. Of course, now that it's turned in, I am convinced it needs another pass. But the authors really need to fix a few things first.

I hope they give it back to me for a second pass. Poor Taig usually has to fix everything I miss.

Where did the new post indicators go? :(

I don't understand why people think "moist" is a gross word. I think "chunk" is much more disgusting.

The gaming system is up. We have lift-off.

Waiting a few to see if it drops or not.

I rather like the keyboard. Clickety-click.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

New keyboard! Now to see if my game system will stay up with the new keyboard. And if it does... how the heck does a keyboard randomly and frequently power down a big desktop? If this doesn't stop the power faults, the only things that haven't been swapped out are memory and OS disk drive. I've put in a new case, mobo, CPU, fans, cooling system, SSD, mouse, and monitor. There's not that much left to swap. :/

At the very least, the constant spooky PG UP/PG DN scrolling will stop. I am fairly sure that the keyboard was throwing extraneous signals, though I initially blamed the mouse scroll wheel. Bad me.

And this is a mechanical, lighted keyboard! YAY! I can work all night without typos!

Life is good.

Since I don't have family to speak of, I generally splurge for Christmas and my birthday and buy myself something I want rather than need. At Christmas, I bought subscriptions to the Washington Post and NY Times. For my birthday, I bought.... Goat Simulator. >_>

Now I am going to go wreck Goatville.

Been listening to a few Rob Bailey songs when I'm lifting lately, just the right amount of energy and anger ^w^

I love AWOLNATION's "Sail" for workouts, for some reason. It always gets the blood pumping.

I've actually knitted since I was a kid. I lived in a 3-generation household. My grandma loved to teach me crafts, and I loved to learn them. My poor mom can't knit to save her life. And now they've found knitting has similar benefits to meditation, I'm glad to do it.


3 people marked this as a favorite.

Eh, don't worry about it. I'm in Honey Badger mode.

Now I'm gonna go do something girly and old - knit, maybe, while watching TV? Not sure what to watch. Guess I'll channel surf until I find one with commercials for Rascals, catheters, and Medicare Supplemental Insurance.

Actually, I'm gonna go pump iron while listening to Dethklok. And you can't stop me!

:P

Same principle as that urge to jump when you're at the edge of a cliff.

How's the art classes doing?
That banana was good. :)

Next class is late March, so I'm practicing shading and form drawing. Nothing exciting, just putting in the work to master the skills.

You are all very kind. Thanks so much for the support.

Definitely. I will ride away at a hustle instead of a run. That will give you 11 minutes to catch up before your heads hit the pavement.

Why can we only edit for an hour? My stream of consciousness keeps screwing up grammar. I see the mistakes now, and it's making me nuts.

F Elf Alchemist 4 {Init +3; Perception +8 (llv); HP 25/35}

"Under a tree? Is he serious?" Sylvia mutters to herself. As the dignified druid moves to exit, she realizes he is going to do just that and calls after him.

"Don't sit under trees! Do you know what birds do to people sitting under trees? Take a poncho, at least! Be careful! They're filthy things!"

She sighs as he gives her a stern look and departs. "Just trying to help. What an odd fellow."

Noelle will be busy keeping the boys in line now (making all of them happy, I'm sure). Pay extra attention to your remaining boy; he'll miss Icky, too. Condolences and peace, Patrick.

Chandi stands impassively next to the noble magistrate, arms folded, as she watches the two elves squabble. I'm rather glad I don't know Elven, she muses.

In less than a minute, her thought changes to, I wish I didn't know Common.

Good news everyone!

Young Master Ichabod has been diagnosed with intestinal colitis. While not fun for him, it is a much better diagnosis than an intestinal blockage, which I had feared. And while the bill was not insignificant, it was still within a range that left me money enough to buy groceries these next few weeks.

So alls well that ends well!

Way to go, Ick Man!

Me too. That's why I got the Fitbit. Now, instead of just feeling like I didn't sleep at all, I can look at a little screen and confirm it. Very useful.

Dude, my mom used to cook bacon strips right in the waffle! I think she might have had to go to confession afterwards.

Nothing is more important than reading the Black Company books.

I bought the RPG, but couldn't find anybody else who had read the books and wanted to play a Black Company game.

I'll sure miss Carrie Fisher - not because of the character she played, but because of her own character: courageous, honest, self-deprecating. Her honesty about mental illness broke down a lot of the barriers of silence regarding such things.

I had my fitbit set to "sensitive" for sleep recording and couldn't sleep at all. Every little thing bothered me and I spent the night tossing and turning.

I set it to "normal" a couple of nights ago. I've been going to sleep around 9 or 10, not waking up at 3 am like usual, but waking spontaneously around 6 or 7 in the same position that I was in when I drifted off.

I am now convinced that the fitbit actually controls sleep.

I just have to say that "Maneuvermoose" is one of my favorite handles on the boards. Don't know if it's an inside joke or not, but it amuses me.
