Woohoo, after a whole day of reformatting, partitioning, re-installing, etc, I have finally set up my laptop. This time I have 2 partitions, Windows XP has its own little partition so it can whirl away on its own, and everything else is on the rest of the drive. So if I have problems again next year, all I have to do is format the C:!
I’ve been getting emails from people who were going to comment (thats right! going to comment!) but could not, because I set it to registered users only. So now I have changed it, Anyone can comment, if you are registered or not. Don’t get me wrong, I still urge you to register: This does NOT mean you have to start up your own blog, you just get a free sign-in name to post comments and browse other blogs. But go ahead and post comments as much as you like, I urge you to!
I hope he doesn’t mind, but I am going to publish one of the emails I got as a comment on here for him, as it is relevant. But any more flames (anonymous comments saying something negative about me) and I will be forced to put comments back to registered users only.
So what did I do yesterday? Nothing much, just reformatting. PartitionMagic managed to completely feck up my whole drive, so its very lucky for me I did a backup before running it. Then I installed WinXP from the dodgy CD Alienware gave me (it has some files missing, but the tech support guy insists it will install fine. Lucky for me, it did). I watched a weird thing about Pagans, things like how they used to have sex with horses, very freaky, then after Big Brother I watched “101 things to do when you are dead”. Once again, very freaky.
This morning I managed to set up my broadband connection without installing all the BT Yahoo crap, much to my relief as I don’t want my laptop full of rubbish again. I installed all the security updates from the CD I ordered, and also went online and used windows update to get it up to date. After installing all my programs and setting FireFox to my default browser, I am now ready to go 🙂
Tomorrow I am seeing Terry, we should be going to the cinema to see Spiderman (last time he cancelled on me saying he was too tired, so we just stayed in instead). Looking quite forward to it because although I didn’t really like the first one, everyone is saying this one is much better. Will give you my opinion on it when I’ve been!
It’s Vilius’ birthday soon, so will probably go out to celebrate that. Will be the first time I go out with Terry in a LONG time, so I’m not sure how it will go.. ugh.
Anyway, thats it for now – remember to check out those comments.
