…Well actually, it’s not the menopolyxinaemia which is causing me trubs now (other than giving me a short fuse on patience and mood). Rather it is darling little Voovoo the Vaio. She has become unwell to the point she refused to do anything I asked of her on Sunday – which is why you got the stopgap post yesterday.
After much fiddling and faddling, I have found ways around a few of her blocks. For example, now the mouse has to be clicked on the left instead of the right and then the enter button often has to be pressed afterwards in order to execute the required task. Frequently, things will not respond at all. Thus, this post is being typed up on Monday morning on Word and I shall go in search of a position at either the library or an internet outlet with the fervent desire to let you know what is happening - - the show must go on!!!
That said, I am uncertain just how much I can manage between now and leaving for Scotland. That is a mere 14 days away now, so if in the end I am forced to make a temporary gap in transmissions (sigh) the it will just have to be.
Let’s see. If this has reached you, there is hope!
I have spent the morning copying ALL my files onto pen drives (USB sticks) which had not already be done and so have a complete record separate to Voovoo. Mac3 is the family IT professional. I once was, but not so much for PCs – mainframes were my thing. I will unload Google Chrome as the suspicion is pointing in that direction. Something to do with the message “he’s dead Jim!”. I am a great Google fan and if this has all been caused via their installations, I shall be most disappointed. My regular backup and maintenance tasks were last done on leaving Mumbai, so have done what I can again now and well start delving around in the guts later.
Oh it’s all sent to try us. [heaves another heavy sigh…]
Don’t fret. YAM’s never down for long!! Loving you all with the capital ‘ell’.
