*** knocks on wood ***

Well, well, well. It’s 1:52 am as I begin to write yet another blog entry. I’ve just re-installed for a 4th time, WINDOWS XP and I think this time, it’s going to work.

No virus alerts or problems arose this time. No stalls on install. No errors during install. I’m right now downloading again the first set of WINDOWS UPDATES, so we’ll see how it goes. So far, it all downloaded ok, fast (as it should be – it was very slow after my 3rd install of the OS), and the installation itself seems to be going smoothly.

*** crosses fingers ***

I hope this works!

So my room is almost clean – I cleaned the closet, the bookcases, the desk, my night-tables, all that is left to sort and organize is the dresser and a bit of the desk which has become messy as I clean the other parts of my room. It smells a lot better too – less dusty.

I will finish early in the morning, I may stay up just installing stuff, I haven’t decided yet. If I do I’ll continue working on cleaning. We’ll see.

I should sleep. And I’m kinda horny lol. I haven’t bated in a few days due to being sick and all.

Ack. Now it wants to install a bunch of hardware lol. Which is good – but I don’t want it to yet, not until the security updates are installed, oh, nevermind, XP installed it by itself. That’s ok I guess lol.

Now installing update 17 of 20…

So far, so good.

I can’t wait to get it working, I’ll have an 80GB and a 120GB hard drive. I really wanna get a newer DVD burner, one that burns twice as much onto a DVD as the older ones, so I can get more stuff onto a DVD. So far, so good.

I was worried I may have to dump this whole system and start from scratch, but I tried something different on this 4th install, and it seems to have worked.

*** knocks on wood ***

I let Windows assign a random number at the end of the username, so that if there are any worms or viruses that sit out on the internet looking for my old username, well, it’s not there anymore. That may be the key?

I dunno…. IT’S A HUGE GUESS ON MY PART.

Found a couple of marketing books I didn’t know I had, which is good – I wanted to read them and now I’ve moved them up to my to read pile.

Anyway, better get to bed or get something done or something other than type randomly into this blog that hardly anyone will probably ever read.

I so could use some chocolate!

But that’s bad – I won’t lose weight eating chocolate. I so wanna go on my bike ride!
