We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties, Please Stand By…

Crud. When I woke up this morning with all these great show ideas swirling in my head, ready to record them for all of your enjoyment, I looked over at my laptop and it was hosed. I mean, really hosed. It has passed away quietly in the night, a victim of the dreaded BSOD, aka Blue Screen Of Death. For some reason, Microsoft sees fit to set up the system to auto reboot when this happens, so I can’t even read the error on the screen, before it fitfully reboots itself, over and over and over again. Afer toying with the idea of recording it on my Treo as in times of yore (say maybe the first 50 episodes?) I decided to spare you the horrible sound quality and skip the show. I also have a MacBook, so as I dropped of my PC to the help desk at work, I thought, hmmm maybe I can use that. But alas, that too was hosed. I fired it up and it jsut sat at this little spinning icon under the big gray Apple logo. Sat like that for about an hour. Problem with Macs is that they don’t even give you enough information to even attempt to diagnose the problem. I dropped that one off at the helpdesk as a picked up my laptop again. Of course by now most of the day was over and I had to catch up on my work, so sorry folks, no show for you today. If you miss me, check out all my past shows anytime you like.
