    So apparently, there's supposed to be some massively widespread "April Fool's" themed computer virus/worm time bomb that's supposed to go off today. And apparently, it's mainly in Europe and China... No one is sure how long it's been inactive, or what exactly it will do when/if it become active.

    My computer didn't go boom...yet. :p

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 2 minutes and 55 seconds later... ----------

    Speaking of April Fools, I've got the kitchen sink spray nozzle taped and aimed just right so when Jessica turns the water on, she's going to get sprayed. :evil:

    I wonder what crazy scheme Google came up with this year. :xx:

    Speaking of April Fools, the essay I've been working on decided to go corrupt on me. I've tried several methods, finally one program worked, but it's a gorram demo version so it only allowed me to recover about half of my text. Fervently catching up.

    God of Computers, this isn't funny. Screw you.

    Having a godfather is a common and greatly respected thing around here - everyone has a godfather. My brother is one, actually.

    Flix, cheer up - things always get better. :)

    DM - sorry about the essay - guess Sloth likes April 1st, though...

    We all know the god of computers is a wrathful and vengeful deity who likes to mock and spread misery for all of us who must use computer daily. There's nothing we can do about, except maybe a monthly sacrifice of a virgin floppy or USB flash drive (be sure it's formated though).

    there's also this prayer

    Father Computer who art in 127.0.0.1
    Encrypted by thy name
    Thy domain come
    Thy root-command be done
    Offline as it is online
    Give us today our daily data
    And forgive us our bad commands
    As we forgive them that
    sends us spam emails
    And lead us not in software bugs
    but deliver us from bloatware
    For thine is the ISP
    The gateway and router
    For ever and ever
    COMPUTE

    I hate companies that claim to have 24-hour tech support, but in reality it's just an email service that only gets checked between the hours of 9am to 5pm. :bang:

    The internet is awesome. Today I bought a utility software from a company in the US, and I got my valid copy within 2 hours, and was able to start working immediately after installation. It's the 64bit version of a program we use at work. I will charge my boss the (smallish) fee in extra hours ... :evil:

    I am soooo annoyed. I've been ironing for about 2 and a half hours and it's so effing boring! Now my back hurts and I'm in a temper and I need more wine!

    BTW, do we have a thread about wine on the boards? I mean good wine, not the crap from the £7 or less shelf

    ****. File got corrupted AGAIN. Thank God I have a backup-esque thing, but that's practically everything I did last night gone.

    While doing a bit of spring cleaning, I found my old Nike sunglasses with transparent orange glasses that saved my ass plenty of times back in the computer tech PSD when five or six of us, uhh, took a walk to enjoy nature. They're gonna be useful for college... I have a feeling I'll be enjoying a whole load of nature for those damned English classes...

    ION, visited another flat yesterday. I like it, I think this could be it.
