Data Errata

Eek! What prognosticator, what stargazer, what scryer of crystal balls or reader of entrails could possibly have foreseen that operating a networked computer without firewalls or virus protection would result in obliterated data and total system failure?

Until everything is sorted out and I have my own working computer again, do try not to be too bereft at my absence from Bloggerland. You know - try to restrain all the wailing, tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth, because patchy-haired banshees with mouths full of worn-down nubs are not all that attractive to prospective mates or employers.

In the meantime, I'm going to drive without my seatbelt to the airport, catch an Air Nepal flight to Everest, climb it without oxygen, then base jump sans parachute. What could possibly go wrong?

Hehehe. I will curtail the gnashing of teeth and tearing of hair as per instruction.

Oh you crack my shit up!!

I like how you added the base jumping part, just in case you actually make it to the top without any oxygen.

So is it fixed yet?

Have you got over your virii yet?

Good to know, Jan.

Maybe you should take over the catering, ut si?

Thanks, Jules ;)

Diesel, I saw on telly a few years ago how a couple actually did try to climb Everest without oxygen. They died of course, but I'm sure the child they orphaned is comforted to know it was all in pursuit of wealth and fame.

And are you joking? Me, fix a computer? I had to buy a whole new one! And as soon as I work out how to connect my shiny new laptop to the internet, I'll be back submitting hopeless captions to your contests :)

Hello Mutley, see above re: buying of new computer, and this one is actually vaccinated, yes ;)

Good to see you all stopped by :)
