Reports of the resuscitation of my computer appear to be somewhat exaggerated. It's going, but the main problem it's been having hasn't been completely fixed; it's still randomly turning itself off in mid-flight, much to the annoyance of various programs (most notably my email program, which has been corrupting its archive folders fairly regularly; they're fixable, for the most part, but it's a substantial pain in the neck trying to re-create them from backups).

Anyway. While I've been on line today I've had a quick nosey at my journal profile and information page and noticed a few new "friends-of" names I don't recognise.

Firstly: Hi there, nocturnalgds, great to meet you. I assume we've met via Nanowrimo... I haven't managed to finish last year's story yet (despite actually hitting the 50,000 mark in a reasonable - for me - time) due to (1) attacks of Real Life, and (2) serious computer problems; but I plan on finishing it some time soon. Hopefully this year.

Secondly: Hi there, red5ive and crephoto. Do we know each other from anywhere? Your journals certainly don't look familiar to me.

Does your computer randomly turn itself off anywhere other than at your place? If not, your power may be just dodgy enough to mess with the computer.

If it is an issue with your power, you may need to get a UPS or something to get your computer working reliably.
