Still Being Screwed By Life

The first thing you'll notice is there's no K-rune picture embedded in this post. That's because my computer is currently at Future Shop, where the creme de la creme of Montreal's retail computer technicians have been mucking about and not returning my phone calls for three days. What should have been a simple rootkit removal has turned into a complete electronic sodomization of my computer as they have to reformat and reinstall everything.

Now, owing to the less than stellar customer service they've provided thusfar (in what, 4 days ago, was to have been a 24 hour turnaround) I'm half-expecting to lose all my stored music, images, valuable, valuable pornography, archived emails and other precious electronic resources.

Before you chip-heads bother to mention it: THANK you, I know I should have backed everything up. Didn't happen. I was able to back up my writing files before this cluster-fuck started, but that's it.

Needless to say I've not done much writing work since my last post (the computer went tits-up the day after) and I have rather restricted access to the computer I'm using now.

When and if things ever get back to what apparently passes for normal in my life, and I will let you know.

Stay tuned.
