Let's Catch Up

So P is fine. He is swollen and the underside of his nose looks GROSS but he is fine. I did a good job I think of taking care of him but by today I was totally over it. Bad wife.

I have had a bad day today as a Trojan Horse virus spewed crap all over my computer. What I don't get is it was my work computer. We are supposed to have uber security on our computers at the office so why is it that my home computer is fine and my work computer is doing the virtual version of the kid in the Exorcist spewing nastiness in the form of pop-ups? I don't get it. I am really hoping I caught it in time because my boss had it, ignored it and had to wipe his hard drive and reinstall EVERYTHING. Just so not good. Mind you, his computer crashed again today and do you know how much work I saved to his hard drive? I almost cried and then I almost crawled through the phone line to wring the neck of the pseudo tech geek when he told me "See the little computer looking icon, that 's the My Computer icon click it for me." WHEN I ALREADY TOLD HIM I HAD A BLACK SCREEN WITH HALT ERROR. Idiot. Why do they put these guys on level one support? Is it just to piss us off when we are at our lowest point? When you try to explain to them that you've been around the inside of a computer before and you are NOT going to reboot again they get all huffy like you've taken away their solution or something.

NOTE: I am NOT bashing all tech guys and gals. I have worked with many good ones in all my previous jobs and one or two in this job. It's just when I need help I don't like wading thru the kiddie pool first.

I apologise now for the lack of inserting paragraph spaces. I know it gets hard to read. Depending on the outcome of certain events in entertainment news, I may have a controversial My Island post coming up. I am still thinking about it, doing research and forming my (correct) opinion.

I am going to go have another beer in the hopes that it will help relax my shoulders and back into their normal position below my ears.

You could have done without a virus at work, on top of everything else, honey. No wonder your shoulders are tense.

Take it easy, you're doing a great job. xxx

Hey, it was your work PC not the home one - isn't that a bonus? And you look smarter than your boss because you took some action early on!

Nice to see you back after a few days - I missed your witty take on life.

Beers are the solution - a good choice there.

Have a great weekend :)

I think the beer and a shoulder massage from P would have helped. I am sure you deserve one after being nurse maid. His hands weren't affected by his nose job, right? :)

Computer viruses suck. Hope yours gets solved quickly!

Take a deep breath....

I gave additional computer rights to one of the managers at work. Today she came to me with her browser hi-jacked. Better than the trojans I battled a few weeks earlier, but man I hate batting tech clean up!

So glad P is better and that your pesto and wine and soothing things over!

I found a Trojan Horse virus on my computer before Christmas and we run 3 full time programs to guard against that. So, I was as confused as you are. Luckily we also run a back-up every day so that we don't lose vital information stored here.

When I tried to talk to a techie I couldn't understand a word he said. He was in India. Argh!

Best mental image EVER--your work computer as the spewing gal in The Exorcist. Man, I love you.
