Excessive whining, feel free to skip

Happy birthday to sloopjonb! Hurray!

I hope you're having a better day than I am. Bah.

Have had about three hours sleep, due to night out last night. Got up early to do DIY bookshelfy stuff with M, which was apparently going to take about three hours, after which he was going home and I was going back to bed, probably.

At 10 I got called in to work, but I managed to persuade them to let me do a late shift (2-12).

At 12:30 we hadn't got all that far with the shelving, and had realised we didn't have enough bits.

Then I discovered my internet was broken - M's laptop couldn't connect to it. Did lots of connecting and disconnecting of things, to no avail.

Then I discovered my computer was broken - I had to do a system restore before it would even start up. And when I did get it started up, I still couldn't get the internet to work, and bloody annoying Vista seems to let you disable a network, but not enable it again. And it's not picking up the wireless router, either. GAH. WOE. ARGH. ETC. And then when I shut it down and started it again, in case that caused a handy hardware wizard pop-up, I had to system restore again! WAAAAAH no internet no computer!

And my Eee hasn't arrived.

M went off to B&Q, I went off to work, and have left him in my flat with my keys...)

Got to work and there were no sodding desks! Had to make people shuffle around computers so that I (and the other couple of people who turned up at two) could get computers with the right software on. Because they won't get licences for all the computers.

Also I haven't eaten anything, which probably isn't helping the grumpiness. I will go and track down some food.

PC probs
Sorry your day isn't going so good. If you're having probs with the pc want me to speak to Fox to see if he'd be available to help a damsel in distress. Or at least help a grumpy grammer nazi? :)

Most of Vista isn't too bad, but I've also had ridiculous amounts of pain when it comes to networking.

I recommend you punish it severely by installing AOL >.o

Eeek! I think the punishment might be worse than the disease, there :D

Mebbe it's just feeling a little unloved, what with the new Eee on the way, and is engaging in attention-seeking behaviour...
