If you are a a regular reader of this blog (and thank you if that is the case) I owe you an apology. I have had a bit of a gap in my postings. There are a couple of reasons. First I have been tied up with a couple of other things that have meant I wasn’t always able to get back to writing something.
However, the bigger problem was that my desktop started to show signs of impending death. The OS must have been corrupted somehow and so a reinstall was called for. Never had to do that before and trashing the system to start again was a bit nerve wracking. Of course, it didn’t go totally smoothly but, courtesy of some good backups I got most things back up and running.
I also took the chance to think about what I really needed on the machine. Yahoo! Messenger has not made it back on. When do i ever use that these days? The priority was getting the most important stuff back up and running so writing blog posts was relegated. However, things seem to be back to normal (mostly) so hopefully I will be a bit more reliable in future.
