Some sort of virus appears to be eating the inside of my hard drive, which, as a matter of course, is screwing up my entire computer. My anti-virus program cannot detect it, so things appear to be headed for the crapper. Which means that, depending on the sort of trouble I'll have to put up with in the coming days, things might not run as they usually do for a while. . .
At times, I can't even access my email, or remain online more than a minute or two. I couldn't notify the winners of the Wintersmith contest by email, so hopefully they'll be checking out the blog. Otherwise, they're in for a big surprise when the book reaches them in a couple of days!;-)
What good is an anti-virus program if things like this can happen??? And it appears that the virus has deactivated my anti-virus application, so that I can't even check for updates. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I won't have to wipe out the entire hard drive. . .
