Well, a borderline bad dream, anyway!

My all-singing all-dancing supercomputer has stopped working. That said, it is working, just some of the programs on it aren’t. Programs suddenly close down on opening, and can’t be uninstalled to be reinstalled. Even some of the options in the Settings menu will not run. I recently had one of those pesky Windows updates, which I think must be the cause as it is too much of a coincidence otherwise.

I can’t uninstall the latest update either. Well, I can part of it, but not the whole thing.

I can’t uninstall my security program, as I thought that may have been the cause to begin with, but not being able to uninstall that, using their own uninstaller program, made me realise the issue was something else.

Somehow, I found out that my all new all-singing all-dancing supercomputer is using an old version of Windows 10, so I’m now going through the process of installing the latest version. It’s at 50% as I type. I’ve been installing it for about three hours now.

It’s a high-speed computer, so it’s going well.

I’m installing my downloads for one of my art programs onto my other computer, and there are thousands of them, so that is taking time as well. This other computer is the one perched at the end of the desk I mentioned a while ago. The one where I have to work at with an arched back.

So, I have one thing installing one thing and another another. And I’m playing Wordament on my mobile phone as I wait. I keep getting words wrong. Three-letter words. Fortunately, four letter words seem OK. One of the games had letters that made up the words B-A-C-K and A-C-H-E. I’m sure it was trying to tell me something.

Maybe my internet provider is wondering what I’m doing. If they read this post, they’ll know.

As I’m typing this, my art program has completed its latest download, and my other computer’s download has shot up to 70%, so maybe I’m being my own worst enemy by doing everything at once.

I just need to post this, and then I will leave things to their own devices.

I must allow myself more patience.

There. That’s a better set of six words.

A rambling Six Word Saturday post.

  1. i am quite envious of a super duper fast computer, but not the hassle that sometimes comes with them, I have had my laptop for a few years now, it’s been good but it’s getting slower, much like me to be fair. I also try and get more done while I am on it, sometimes i have my Ipad working too as well as my phone and they are all taking bandwidth, but yes I still moan about the speed..

    1. It’s getting there, Elaine. I have thousands of files that need to be reinstalled, and they are taking the time up. At least I’m now up to the ‘H’es… so only 18 letters to go. Sigh.
