Gremlins and the Deluge...

It has been a long 2 1/2 months since my last blog post here.  For that, I am sincerely sorry.

July 15, which saw my last blog post, also saw us get flooded.  A valve on the hot water tank broke, and the water spread throughout the basement.  The damage amounted to the following items:
  • The bathroom lino had to be replaced;
  • The sink cabinet had to be replaced;
  • The kitchen lino had to be replaced;
  • The kitchen cabinets had to be replaced;
  • The carpet outside the bathroom had to be replaced;
  • The carpet by the laundry room had to be replaced;
  • The living room carpet had to be replaced;
  • The carpet in the two bedrooms had to be replaced; and
  • A good chunk of the wall in my bedroom had to be replaced.
That wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't been plagued by computer problems as well.  Those included:
  • Hard drives not being detected;
  • Read disk errors with the hard drive;
  • Blue screens of death;
  • Computer freezing up;
  • Sound card problems (including one instance of the "Scooby Doo Theme" suddenly being converted into dubstep); and
  • Boot disk errors.
Since it would've been unfair to you to put you through constant postponments of "What Movie Wednesday" (I had to do that two weeks in a row if I remember correctly), and potentially sporadic postings, I felt it was best to put "The Corner of Terror" on hold until these problems could be resolved.

Well, as of this post, the bulk of the situation has been fixed.  I have a new computer, so I can actually start doing my reviews and "What Movie Wednesday" feature again at least.  Soon- we're hoping by the 28th or so, my room will be finished- which means I can then move back into it (rather than sleeping in the downstairs living room surrounded by boxes, etc) and can then begin work again on a few other projects as well- which I'll discuss a bit more in my next post.

For now however, let me say that it's great to be back.  I've really missed posting here, and I'm looking forward to getting fully into the swing of it again!

  1. Welcome back! That sounds like a lot of frustration to deal with. Floods are such a pain, and technology problems can drive me crazy! So I sympathize with all that's been going on. I'm looking forward to the return of those What Movie Wednesday tweets/posts!
