Bloody computers!

I got very frustrated this morning because my computer declared that it needed to install updates and then proceeded to restart. I was left staring at a blue screen with the word "Restarting" and some little blobs going round and round and round.

For three hours.

At that point, I consulted G who declared that it must have crashed and advised forcing it to shut down and then restarting it. I gritted my teeth (inwardly cursing Microsoft), but everything restarted just fine and after a bit of "installing updates... 30% ... 50%... 77%... it reached 100% and I was actually able to use my computer again. Whew!

However, I spent the morning ironing and reading as well as fretting, so the time wasn't completely wasted.
