Sick As A Dog. March 13, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Love and Death.

With the Electric Holocaust 80% rectified, I now find myself deathly ill.

And being, as I am, reluctant to blog from the bathroom, I’ll just say…


I’m Baaaaa-aaack! March 11, 2009

…well, sorta.

After an amazing week in the desert with Frau Biergut, I returned home on Sunday to find the Perfect Electronic Storm brewing – problems with my PC, including loss of my CD/CD ROM drive, plus two out of three of The Boss’ two-way radios not working or repairable, plus my employer’s hand-held PC refusing to turn on, necessitating a hard reset to factory settings and the total loss of two years’ work.

And then, because my personal ‘puterbox didn’t have a CD drive, I couldn’t reinstall the operating systems I use every day at work ’till I resolved my personal computer issues.

Which took seven hours of techie-time, at $60/hr.  On my dime.  And so far, two consecutive all-nighters.

So ‘scuse me for a bit longer as I struggle to not get fired, which until about an hour ago sounded like a done deal, and still looks like a distinct possibility, though I’m seeing a glimmer of hope in the smoldering wreckage of my Essential Technical Systems.

But WHEN I get this mess sorted out I’m gonna tell you about an absolutely fabulous week in the desert with an amazing person, my guide and mentor Lizz.

That’s a promise!

…Now, back to work on this electronic spaghetti…
