My Linux Mandriva 2011 umpty-umpth installation has booted three days in a row, now, with fingers crossed for four, so I may have discovered which geeky tweak I did that scrambled its brains.
I FOUND MY FLASH DRIVES, after turning out my purse and hunting the house over. I was very nearly driven to cleaning my office, but I emptied the purse one more time and LO! there was a hole in the zipper pocket in which I kept the flash drive container, and the container had slipped down inside the lining. So had my pencil sharpener, two pencils, two pens (one black, one red), a packet of facial tissues, a small knife, the key to my mother’s safe deposit box, and my Epi-pen. I sewed up the hole — my seamstress skills just about run to that — and put everything back where it belongs.
I still haven’t found my watch, though. If you see a silver cuff watch with a round black face, tell it to come home and I’ll buy it that pony it was begging for.
My post at Fatal Foodies is about actual book marketing. Like at a market.
