|As I kinda expected, going to bed early lead to getting up very early. I managed this well enough, but the real fun began a few hours later we mom told me her computer was behaving strangely.
The rest of the day was spent fussing over it. Things wouldn't load or update, so I ended up checking the filesystem and repairing errors there. Once that was done I moved on to some scans for malware (nothing was found).
Things were an uphill battle from there, as my next attempt was to run Windows Update. This froze and attempts to get it going again didn't work. By the time I gave up I was ready to fling the machine out the window. On the plus side, the hard drive doesn't seem to be dying.
On the downside, since I spent the day fighting with that I didn't get anything else done and managed to get nearly explosive due to the constant problems I encountered every step of the way.
I feel like Octavia got a better deal...
