So for those of you who don't follow me on Twitter - which I don't understand because I'm fantastic - this weekend saw me taking my computer back to factory reset. Why? Because my Windows operating system was beginning to have all of these hickups. A blue screen here, a run time error there, and then my favorite: explore.exe errors. I consulted with my best friend, who has been working on computers since 1994, and at his advice I went back to the factory preset.
The move has been a good one even though it turns out that doing so had some unforeseen consequences. You know the ones I'm talking about. Like the fact that Microsoft suddenly decided that I had never bought fucking Office Professional, twice, and they wouldn't recognize my right to run it again for two fucking days. Or that I forgot to download all of my bookmarks before I did the dump. Or that it would take me five hours of downloading and installing updates to Windows 8 before I could upgrade to the far, far, far superior Windows 8.1.
It's my own fault that I do these things.
Anyway expect the Best Reads for March to start appearing late this week early next sometime. I know it's late but there's just so damned much still to do on the computer so that's just the way that things are going to have to go right now. Oh, and mother fucking Steam is the shit. Love the fact that I can just redownload my games when things like this happen. BEST. THING. EVER.
