Well, i guess I should post in here occassionally....

Been a fun 24 hours (and i mean that in the most sarcastic way possible)...

At aproximately 00:15, which is almost 24 hours to the minute ago, my PC, well, my normal, Windows 2000 Pro, desktop PC, took a fatal nose-dive... it crashed, and now refuses to boot in normal mode... it flashes a blue screen of death during the Starting Windows... bit, then automagically reboots... *not* good... if you leave it alone it just keeps cycling through... restart, load Windows GUI, Starting Windows... *BLUE*SCREEN*OF*DEATH*, restart, etc...

The accursed installation still loads up in Safe mode, including Networked Safe Mode, so I can get LAN and internet access, but i'm stuck in 16 colours with no mouse... which is sukky in the extreme....

Apart from that, well, I got to talk to my angel for a few minutes, like, chat, on the fone... but i was still recovering from the weekend (physical stuff and me don't mix these days it seems...) so I wasn't really with it...i *hate* no being with it when I chat with her... she deserves far better from me... i should atleast be able to hold a reasonable conversation, instead of lapsing into silence regularly... so yeah, it was short, and i was crappy-conversational... so that sukked too... a very bittersweet feeling.. i love talking to her, i hate me being so crappy.

so, on to today... well, i guess today has just been dull.... i've mostly just been burningstuff to CD that I've collected during this Windows installation... including my most recent 3.5Gb or so RedHat Linux 7.3 download... actually, that's pretty much *all* i've burnt... my 450MHz K6 doesn't really like burning at anything mroe than 4 speed.. so i run it at 2 speed burning to be safe.. less blank CDs end up as frisbees that way....

My code is still not finished, I have *got* to work on that tomorrow... the childrens festival crept up on me, so i hadn't planned on it happening this last weekend.. i was originally planning on working on code all weekend, and having it finished by monday... that didn't happen. So now I want to try and get two version numbers written tomorrow... the first is mostly copying and tweaking the 0.11 code, the second is a new feature, but it's not *too* complex, except for the new way of doing something... well, not really new, just new-to-me...

So, what else to write... not a lot i guess.

Sarah, I miss you.... hopefully you'll be online when I get out of this and we can talk...

I love you, my beautiful Gothic Angel.
