back on line - sort of

have been computerless for several days - took pc to a nice chap who basically did a few checks and told me he could find nothing wrong with it - it started for him and behaved like a good little computer. Naturally, when I get it back, it freezes on the first attempt, but with a few kicks and a lot of swearing, it does at least start.

After being told by one boffin that the motherboard on my laptop was dead, I asked same chap to recover the data from it - which he did, only guess what? Laptop worked fine for him too. Unfortunately, the mains cable is rather dodgy and needs replacing - but that shouldn't be too much of a problem. So I'm 85 Euros down and not that much better off as yet.

Apologies to anyone whose birthday I may have missed, and to those who are poorly, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

computer troubles

it seems my laptop has died a death and is not worth repairing - hoping to recover files, though

So, have had to crank up the old pc again - doesn't like being started very much, I notice, and also freezes on me a lot - fingers crossed this doesn't pack in as well - at least until i decide if i'm going to buy a new laptop or have a christmas whipround the aged relatives and wangle a mac somehow. I'm reallly fed up of throwing good money after bad.

Self pimp

Hello flist. Hope you're having a nice Sunday.

If anyone's still interested, the next chappie of Epiphany is up on OWl and TPP and in the queue at Ashwinder.

(Reassumes recovery position after boozy wedding yesterday).

Blinks at the sun

Sorry I haven't been feeling terribly communicative of late - I guess the old black dog has been sniffing around and has outstayed his welcome. RL stuff has been getting me down for various reasons - I was hoping to get back to the UK this month to give my family a good talking to, but it looks like I won't be able to go now until August. Oh, well. they'll have to wait.

On the plus side, I have begun modding at OWL, under annie's eagle eye.
I have completed a chapter of Epiphany. Won't be posting it on any archives until I've done the follow up chapter though in case I need to edit. (It is up on my IJ comm but under a flock :)

Oh, and if anyone can tell me why a cd refuses to format (I'm trying to do a back up disk) I'd be glad of the help.

Didn't think I'd be inspired by the 'maternal' challenge on [info]grangersnape100


In your dreams

OOh... Shiney

Still recovering from a cold which seems to have drained all energy out of me. I can't remember when I last felt this lethargic, but my brain is definitely not firing on all cylinders - and with visitors arriving soon, well, I'm sure you get the picture. So, it was a very nice surprise to find that 'Cuckoo in the Nest: the Baby Dialogues' has been featured on OWL this month. Thank you Annie and Potionsmistress for the banner.

Owl featured:may 2009

I am also being taken on as a trainee mod on OWL, and am looking forward to starting when both cold and visitors have gone.

Porn and matter of self-cofidence

Did anyone see the programme last night on channel 4 about sex education versus porn? I only saw the last 15 minutes or so of it. The premise of the programme was about how exposure to pornography on the internet at a young age affects attitudes to sex.

Teenage Dream

I thought I'd never do another drabble again after that last mammoth one. However, a mini plot-bunny sneaked up on me when I wasn't looking, and the result was Teenage Dream

As usual, you try to write one thing, and something else pops into your head. I've extended the first chapter of my anti mlc fic which may be found here. Feedback appreciated.
