||Second day of it
Posted on May 2nd, 2012
|Today was spent much like yesterday. Mom's computer began acting up in the morning, so I took it and began fussing with it shortly thereafter. I ran the long tests on the hard drive and memory, both of which checked out fine.
After that I began the process of manually resetting Windows Update, which seems to hold the key to the problem. It wasn't able to run on its own, and some parts of Windows were hanging in the background.
In the end I finally got it to run Windows Update and install a slew of new updates. There's more I could install, but I opted to let mom use her machine for now. It still seems to have a few issues, but further updates might fix that. Anyway, it looks like I won't have to get out the heavy artillery just yet.
Unlike yesterday, I didn't stick around to wait on the computer. Instead I got right back on my own machine and worked on other things. By "other things" I pretty much mean my letter to grandma and DFO. Yeah, I know it sounds like I'm taking forever just to compose a letter, but remember this is an update covering over a year and I have a ton of things to say. It's no four paragraph "hello, how are you?" job.
The link for the day is a celebration of a special pony project. Bronies for Good are a My Little Pony charity group that just reached its $10,000 goal. To celebrate, talented artists around the fandom gathered their voices encourage everyone to Smile Smile Smile!
