I'm Pam Newman.
I am awesome every day & you are too.
Follow my butt on Twitter!
I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
And there should be ample time for me to get to know the places I visit, as well.
I fuckin’ know, right? I’ve stayed inside all day in my underwear. HATEHATEHATE. /angry artist-type
That’s been my uniform for today, too. Even with the AC cranked to the max, it’s still too fucking hot to be creative in regards to anything but bitchin’ about stuff.
MY LAPTOP IS DYING, YOU GUYS.
I’m really stressing out about this. I need alchohol, a support group and eight million hugs.
1) why you payin for software? j/k. sort of. 2) you can at least try and make a bootable linux distro on a usb drive to try and get the files (memories!) if the HDD isn’t corrupted 3) what’s the RAM stick situation? 4) have you googled the error?
1 - ‘Cause I used to be able to afford it, and I’m marginally paranoid about downloading viruses for this very reason. I got molested by Limewire a long time ago (I was also running Windows ME at the time. I make bad decisions.)
2 - I didn’t think about Linux. Good idea.
3 - 1 gig of Ram’s chillin & recognized by the bios.
4 - I am trying to, but I can’t read it. I made a video and posted it to tumblr (lolz), and the text of the error isn’t very legiable. I’m a lil’ stressed, gonna stop working on it for a minute, and try to read the error again in a bit.
Posting mostly so I can pause the bsod on a larger screen and find out if I can fix it without restoring back to factory.
Last night I got a virus, which I thought I had theroughly cleaned.
I ran a bunch of software which I trust, did some double-checks in the registry and things seemed to be running smoothly.
Then, my laptop started to overheat this morning. I have a little Acer AspireONE, and it gets hot pretty easily. Every now and again, if I’m running too many large programs, it’ll freak out. No big deal, generally, but I was only running a fresh window of Chrome, a couple of tabs in Firefox and Grooveshark. My laptop is a baby but it’s not a peice of shit. Something was wonky. There weren’t even any crazy items running in the task manager process list. The little fan/desk thingy that I got for it wasn’t helping the heat issue, so when XP locked up, I just shut down & restarted.
That’s when all hell broke loose.
First I restarted, and it didn’t even show the windows loading screen. Just a Blue Screen of Death. I panicked a little bit, but I figured it was just because the processor was still too hot.
Nope. I let it sit for over an hour while I plugged in the lapthingy into a desktop. Power up… BSOD.
AW HELL NAW.
I can recover windows back to factory settings on this thing very easily, but I have some very expensive software on that machine which I paid cash money for. It’s also a pain in the ass to install anything that isn’t an internet download on this laptop as there’s no CD drive. There are also videos & pictures -memories- which I lazily haven’t backed up anywhere else. I really should punch myself in the eye for that. I even have a 100g external drive. UGH. Stupid.
I’m presently googling my ass off trying to figure out how to repair windows on this thing from a usb hdd. Right now everything I’m reading leans toward resetting back to factory.
I don’t wanna!
- eat an entire decorative pillow in my sleep.
- cover a pita in syrup.
- draw a waffle, glue cotton balls to it… and eat it.
- gnaw off my own leg.
I OWN A WAFFLE IRON AND THINGS THAT I COULD EASILY TURN INTO WAFFLES.
Kool aid but no sugar
Milk but no cookies
Deli meat but no bread
Taco seasoning & ground meat, but no taco shells
… FUNCTIONAL LAPTOP BUT NO WIRELESS ROUTER.
I have no idea where the router is. SO CLOSE, YET SO FAR AWAY.
I get them like this every once and a while, and I think it is related to barometric pressure, because advil doesn’t help.
It started in the middle of the night around when the rain stopped (I’m guessing). It’s all sinus pressure and it hurts like a motherfucker.
My mother has been IMing me like it’s a favor to me.
I’ve had 4 interviews in the past week, and one more later this week for a gig I don’t think I’ll want.
Also, I have been pooping non-stop.
