Crisis Averted!

I walk into the computer room this morning to check my mail.

My virus scanner has a message box waiting for me saying there are new bits available to update, and would I like to update now? I say yes, as I always try to stay current with virus patterns and the like.

Virus update occurs, and I get a blue screen. Bugger. Then I get another one, and another one, and another one...

You get the drift.

I manage to persuade it to do a reboot. It reboots nicely until it gets to the login screen, where it reboots itself.

On this reboot it complains that I didn't shut it down properly (who didn't shut it down properly?), however after that it reboots nicely until it gets to the login screen, where it reboots itself.

On this reboot it complains that I didn't shut it down properly (who didn't shut it down properly?), however after that it reboots nicely until it gets to the login screen, where it reboots itself.

On this reboot...

Eventually I manage to reboot into Safe Mode, where I uninstall the virus scanner, and reboot normally.

Then I have to get online (without a virus scanner!) so I can download the virus scanner again for a reinstall. After a few drama's (like you can't use a 2002 product key on the 2003 product) the virus scanner is reinstalled, and I'm feeling better protected.

Ugh! Why does my computer hate me?

You see, the great myth is that we are still developing AI. I think, computers already have it, and are playing dumb just to piss us off.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
