Crapola Day

It's 10:00 a.m.

At 6:30, I woke up. The alarm was set for 6:00.

At 7:30, I get stuck behind a 712 year old driving to work.

At 7:38, the 712 year old's tire throws a stone onto my windshield. I now have a lovely rock peck in the middle of my windshield.

At 8:10, my computer tells me that I'm out of disk space. This is not possible. Upon further review, I have less than 100 meg available on my 40 gig drive.

At 9:00, I've been able to free up an additional 100 meg. No idea where the rest of my space has gone.

At 9:30, I begin moving all of my stuff to a networked drive since it looks like I will be rebuilding my laptop.

At 9:35, closed office door and cursed like a motherfuc*er.

At 10:00, calmed down somewhat and posted this bit of drivel.


Aw. Do you need a hug?

Do you by any chance have Norton running on your system? If so, check your recycle bin to see if it contains any "Norton Protected Files." If so, purge them all.

I freed up 17GB yesterday purging those suckers.

It seems that Norton's default setting keeps you from actually emptying your recycle bin.

Sounds like you're having one of Norman's "OFIM" kind of days. :( Sorry to hear it.

Well, at least it sounds like you are keeping to a regular schedule, right?

So you had a Manic Monday. Hopefully not a Traumatic Tuesday?

Hugz from me as well.
