So, we go to the dentist this morning. Brian was making his next appointment when I got there. He’s got a problem with one of his front teeth, the enamal is eroding and it has to be fixed.
I get mine cleaned, the dentist comes in, looks around my mouth, says “there’s decay around that filling” (translation: $ka-ching!$), so I have to go in and get that filling removed and refilled. Next Tuesday for both of us.
Then over to my mom’s, where one of the park residents wants to buy her 26” television. I throw in the combo DVD/VHS player and the cart it all comes in, for $150.00 (paid for my dental visit, leaving me two bucks). Brian says when I get home, “hey, you can take us to lunch!” *sigh*
So, we get back from lunch, it seems that Windows automatic update updated automatically while we were gone. None of the cameras I set in the morning were running. I get them running and gee, what’s this? They’re not uploading to the internet. Hmm. Then I try connecting. Can’t. On either computer.
Brian, who’s computer did not get updated automatically, is running fine. Crap. So, I do a sys restore on this computer and I can get back on to the net. I do a quick search of not being able to connect to the internet after Win autoupdate and it seems with the most recent update, there’s some sort of problem with Zone Alarm, which runs on all of our computers. I change a setting on the XP home system and get the camera rolling again.
Damned Windows. I about had a heart attack.
