Whoo, I had a black touch of death with electronics this week for some reason. But after all those tweets I made about having issues with Windows 10 when they pushed the update, I had to reinstall the operating system.
I also had to buy Office 2016, but it's fine. I can write it off on my home business taxes.
Whatever the issues were, I have a feeling it had a lot to do with all the crap left on my system after I upgraded from 8.1 to 10. My HP had all their bloatware and crap that blew something up, so the only thing to do was a fresh install and wipe everything clean. Cleeeaaannn.
I'm still not up all the way, and I have a bunch of software I need to reinstall, but a shout out to the Firefox extension XMarks for restoring my hundreds of bookmarks after I had to reinstall Firefox, and also thanks to the Classic Theme Restorer extension function so I can make Firefox less awful. Hooray.
And now I shall be looking into buying some external hard drive that will automatically back up my files whenever I add them. I don't have much on my computer, but the majority of the important stuff were files for my editing business. I had a panic attack when I thought I couldn't access them -- including ALL the images and files I used for my website. GAH.
But the panic has passed and whatever broke is fixed (fingers crossed this doesn't happen again though!)
And I think I responded to everyone...I've been down for a week so I might have missed a few comments. I apologize if I did!
