while the collage show isn't until 8/12, jim at big car wants all the art in the gallery by 8/6 (so that people who are coming by the gallery for other events will get to see all the collage). so at home i've been spending a lot of time making new collages, as well as catching up on the first season of the new battlestar galactica (thanks, bittorrent).
at one point last night i returned to my room to see a blue screen of death on my computer: extremely rare in xp. rebooting didn't work either the first couple times, and then it did. so i watched the two-part season-1 finale of battlestar galactica. but the next time i left the room long enough for my screen saver to kick in, i returned to find that BSOD again. this time, even fiddling with the bios, i couldn't get it to boot again. it didn't want to boot from cd, and i couldn't boot from floppy because i had never actually hooked up my floppy drive properly. eventually i gave up and went to bed.
this morning i started it up and it booted fine. it even told me that windows had recovered from "a serious error". so i went to take my shower, and when i got back: BSOD. ugh. but at least it boots sometimes. now i'm at work, where the computer is crap but it boots every time.
here's my theory: last night we had 2-3 power flickers right in a row. i'm thinking that's most likely what caused my system instability. if i can get it to boot again, i can run system restore or try to "repair" my windows installation, and hopefully that'll work.
but i don't know if i'll have time to do that tonight, as tonight we're supposed to go to key cinemas, and bruce campbell will be there, signing autographs and giving us a sneak preview of his new movie, the man with the screaming brain.
anyway, i don't expect to have much time for blogging and the like in the next few days... even if i get my home computer back up in working order tonight, i still have way too much crap to do at work, and lots to do at home preparing for virago's move and the collage show.¶
