Jumpdrives & Cantrips


Trouble in computer land…

So my husband and I have been dealing with a massive computer problem since last summer, when our computer failed. Apparently the motherboard, the power supply, and memory all were borked and had to be returned to the manufacturer while under warranty. In the interim, one of our friends has been kind enough to lend us a machine (this was back in July-August). Well, last week we thought we had everything put together again after getting the parts back finally, but alas, the machine started crashing randomly and programs self-corrupted themselves. This meant another trip to the shop.

We now have a working computer again, which is a lovely thing in terms of writing (not to mention my new wireless keyboard with keys that feel bouncy–I love it!), but it meant a great deal of bargaining and another borked memory stick. Anyhow, the important thing is I can write this now, but because we spent the last few days running around partly on computer related errands, I haven’t had as much reading time as I wanted.

Er, well, I did spend about a day’s worth of time playing Rockband’s cathartic drum kit, but that’s to do with the computer as well…

In any case, the more important thing is that I’m in the midst of reading the first Jani Kilian book, Code of Conduct, by Kristine Smith as well as Doranna Durgin’s Dun Lady’s Jess. So expect to see reviews of them soon.

Hey, just wondering if anyone’s checked out Satires.net or not. It looked cool but every link goes to an external page. Nice site though!
