BSOD and Sock Progress

Okay, so you haven't heard from me since Friday (which is more normal than I like to admit), but this time it's due in large part to having received the "Blue Screen of Death" while working on the computer last weekend. And while I've seen plenty of blue screens in my life, this was unlike any other I've ever seen before. It simply said something in plain English about a hardware failure. That can't be good.

This particular post comes to you from the work computer (technically a no-no--shhh... don't tell), just so I could let you know what's going on (the mad backing up of files and trying to make the computer work for a little longer, 'cause I don't really want to be spending the bucks on a new computer right now).

So, anyone who's sent me e-mail in the last week or so, please accept my apologies for not yet responding. I'm hoping to have something close to normal access restored this weekend, if Mother's Day doesn't take over. (Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there.) And Susan, I'm sorry I haven't been able to send you a thank you note, but if you're reading, thanks for the shout out on your blog.

I'll try to post eye candy tomorrow, but no guarantees, since it will have to be another stealth operation...

Sock progress
So, the second sock looks something like this:

Yes, this is a photo of the first sock, taken from a post in November, but given my current technical difficulties--and the fact that the second sock looks remarkably like the first, I'm posting this one again. Yes, I've been working on these socks forever.

I'm hoping to have both new content and the technical tools to do a more interesting post next week--hopefully, a bit more fun than my standard-issue post, but you'll have to be the judge. Cross your fingers that the computer cooperates!

There is application Digeus I always use it when windows hangs, works slow or chashes. I also recommend to use Windows Tune Up Suite form Windsty. It eliminates BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and optimizes system performance.
