My computer seems to be having a midlife crisis of some kind. Not sure what's going on, but it involved the Hideous Blue Screen of Death, something about the system not being able to process the registry, and now it seems to think it's 2003 -- not recognizing the drivers for the "new" monitor I got like two years ago, and my desktop contains all the shortcuts I used back then and none of my current ones. (May Moms, can one of you email the link to our current board to me at one of my gmail accounts? I can't find you!)
Not sure if this is fixable, and frankly, anything to do with the registry gives me the willies. Then again, perhaps this is the result of me still using Windows ME, which came with this machine when I bought it in 2001 and which I have continued to use despite the fact that Microsoft no longer supports the product. Last time this happened, I was on the phone with Jawarhalal from Hewlett-Packard support for like 2 hours and it cost me like 50 bucks. (This, of course, just reminded me of the "Fresh Chutney" thing from the other day and now has me cracking up yet again. I am so lame.)
The bottom line is that until I get this straightened out, I may be out of pocket. I'm actually having a mild panic attack right now, hoping my trash isn't just completely effed.
Any of you who know the number, call my cell if you need me!
All I know is, I'm starting to regret not backing up all of my music and photos onto cds. Right, like you're all so on top of things and have everything archived properly and stored in neat little cd binders. You sick bastids.
PS: Fresh, I still think you're too hard on yourself, but whatever.
