My brand new whiz-bang expensive computer has died in the arse. Again. I'm going to take it back to the shop this afternoon, which will be the third time it has had to be returned since buying it early this month. I'm reduced to blogging at work, which will have to stop next week anyway when my boss gets back from holiday! Anyway, Aidan's dad is procuring a copy of Windows XP for me, so installing that instead of Vista might be the way to go - depending on the outcome of this new attempt at getting it fixed at the place of purchase.

In other, more exciting news: I'm visiting Aidan this weekend! Two more sleeps! I like it when there's two days to go, because I say to myself, "Tomorrow it'll be tomorrow!" which I find mildly amusing plus it makes it seem sooner.

To answer Within Without's question, the picture at the top of my blog is of a sunset in Budapest, taken from just outside the catacombs under the castle. Yes, taken by me. I loved Budapest, I want to go back there one day. There is a link on the right hand side of this blog to Europe Photos, which is a selection of my favourite photos taken during that trip, and it does include the full-sized version of this photo. Enjoy :)

Love the image, funny thing, I was trying to figure out where in the World it was before I read your post. Amazing stuff Stace

Well, it's not very distinctive, it doesn't really show any landmarks or anything... I just love the colouring :)

Hey! I've been to Budapest! (OK, maybe I just drove through it, but still...)

It's a beautiful pic, Stace.

Now, I don't get it about this computer. If I was you and Aidan, I'd be returning this computer like RIGHT F*KN NOW!

Or get them to install Windows XP. Why are you going through all this crap?

Computers are supposed to be getting easier to use, not harder to use. Vista's a piece of junk, that's what I've heard...

Anyway, sorry...have a nice day!

Oh, and I've already told sex this weekend! He's got to stay in shape for cycling!

WW - I took it back yesterday. They say they'll fix it. Last time the guy had a problem with actually seeing something was wrong - it locks up randomly, or when you try to install something. So unless he tried to install something, he probably wasn't going to see the issue. However this time, the computer won't even boot up. He should be able to spot a problem there. So this time, I'm optimistic!

And you're a liar. I hope. You told Aidan no such thing!!!!! haha

Within Without said...

OK, I lied. But I know he reads your blog, so I was trying to head him off at the pass...

I was trying to get a "rise" out of him. Ha ha ha ha!

Seriously, enjoy your time together, you two lovestruck loonies!

I just haaate computer trouble! I just want the thing to work! Right now, my printer/scanner/copier is on the blink. I need to take the time to find out what is wrong with it, but I just dread to.
Anywayyyy....I appreciate you keeping up with your blog from work and the library! ((HUGS)) AND I like the brilliant font colors against the black! *smile*
Tell Aidan I said Hello! and have an extra-special time together, Stace!
AND the header picture IS beautiful!
