Miscellaneous Musing |Techie Talk by Judy @ 4:54 PM

In amongst other exciting developments…

I have about 16″ completed on the Sensational Shirttail sweater and I’m just about ready to start the neckline decreases.

I’ve worked about 2″ on the Mermaid Socks. I really like the spiral lace effect. And the colors are creating a subtle spiral in the opposite direction that I really like. I’ll try to get a pic up in the next day or two.

My task for this weekend, whether I want to do it or not, is to try to get #1 Son’s computer working again. I upgraded his Norton Antivirus, and now it won’t boot. It hangs with the cursor pointer on a black screen and the desktop won’t come up. Not even in safe mode. < snarl > And since it was mid-NAV-upgrade, I can’t even reinstall XP. NAV won’t let me. (thanks Symantec) (suggestions from techie types gratefully accepted)

I may have to wipe his hard drive and start over. But at least I can knit while waiting.

Voice mail received this morning from #1 Son:

Hey. Just wanted to let you know I got home OK after work last night and no big mishaps with the car. (giggle) I wanted to say thank you again for lunch and going to the college with me and blah blah. And I think fall is going to be a good term and I’m excited. Thanks again for everything. I’m really excited about the car and it’s totally sweet but I will be really responsible and don’t be worried. And I love you. And give me a call later.

And I think that’s one of the nicest voice mails I’ve ever received.
