Readers may remember that my trusty old computer was acting up last week, forcing me out of circulation for a couple of days. With the help of a friendly technician, I was able to use temporary work-arounds to return to more or less normal operations.
I mentioned last Thursday that the techie was going on vacation for a week. However, his plans changed, so I have the unexpected opportunity to take this machine to him today for further work. He will perform major surgery on it, gutting its gizzards and reaming out its retros. When it returns home in a couple of days it should be as good as new, if not better.
During its absence I will be posting less than usual. I’ll be able to use one of Dymphna’s machines to do some of my work, but the news feed will be put on hold. During my enforced idleness I’ll work on installing and configuring some of the elements of my Auxiliary Brain on her computer, with the long-term goal of being able to operate on that machine like I do on my own.
This is not quite a vacation, but it’s not business as usual, either.
Later, dudes and dudettes.
