Well, the refreshed system is mostly behaving nicely – most of my applications came back with no (or minimal) hiccups once I had the right things installed. I have two irritations: the online game I play for relaxation (an all-ages MMORPG called Wizard101) has acquired an annoying red overlay on some of the objects which makes parts of it pretty unpleasant (the joys of running software with WINE… Alas, not the alcoholic sort although there are times it would drive you to drink), and Kindle For PC refuses to open (again, running under WINE). I’ll get it sorted eventually, just not tonight.
NADWCON draws ever-nearer. I’m looking forward to that, but I have to admit right now I’m more looking forward to the week-and-some vacation that goes with it. This is the “recession of the overworked” as those that have jobs work themselves into the ground in an attempt to keep them. Roll on middle-class-retirement-plan, otherwise known as winning the lottery. They just will not draw the right numbers.
In writing news, there is news in the wings, but the stars have to align and the Gods of Weird be propitiated with further offerings of the tattered remnants of my sanity before I can make any announcements. Rest assured that announcements will be made as soon as the stars, planets, moons, and ruined sanities align.
