Geekiness

Geek mode fully engaged this morning, after numerous bouts of swearing by my sister at her computer.

For some reason known only to Microsoft, her login had died completely. She was able to get in via other user accounts (a couple of grandchildren and I have logins - me so I can access the printer) but it was very frustrating, especially when I wanted to upgrade her virus protection which had run out.

So, after reading up on what to do I tried to print out the instructions but could not see her computer at all, even when logged in as me (the printer is local to her pc, not networked - and that is going to get sorted at some point!). Much under-breath swearing, including at the one cat who loves sitting on the lap of whoever is on that computer (and apparently watched from start to finish the video of the horse meeting water for the first time).

So it was out with the little notebook pc I have, which of course had no charge in the battery. Cables draped all over the place, the notebook perched precariously on the end of the desk so I could read the instructions, and of course Adobe Reader had to update itself while I'm trying to scroll through the instructions!

Finally, all instructions were complete and I restarted the computer... and she was back!

Now to deal with the heating!
