Stupid Bill Gates and stupid service pack 2 and stupid me

So, scary experience of the day: While taking a bath (and trying desperately to catch up on class reading), I suddenly heard the Windows shut down music come from my room, and then, a few minutes later, the Windows start up chimes. For a few minutes, I truly believed that someone was in my house, restarting my computer. It turns out, it’s just that I finally broke down and installed Service Pack 2 yesterday, and somehow gave the computer the power to update itself — including restarting itself at will. Luckily there was a message waiting on the screen about this when I crept up to the computer, hammer in hand, after the bath. I really want to get a bat, only I can’t really think of any “wacko restarting my computer” scenarios that end well with a bat involved.

The good news? One paper down, and one at least forming in my head, so I hope it can be completed by tomorrow at 1. I’m a little punchy. Just a little.

    FYI – my super alpha geek is here visiting for a week – so if you need any computer assistance now is the time to call my house and ask for it.

    Oo, thanks for the offer. Luckily, everything seems to be in working order (at the moment).
