Thursday Late Night Open Thread: Fucking Norton!

Sorry for not posting yesterday, I’ve been spending my time playing some great Game Boy game roms on the emulator. Tonight was a quiet night. We had some roasted pork, rice and green beans for dinner. That really filled me right up. 🙂

Oh, I encountered something weird while I was on my computer this afternoon. I was running Norton LiveUpdate and it asked me to restart now after it completed the updates. So I clicked Restart Now and let it reboot, and then I got back into Windows but I suddenly lost the internet connection because Norton LiveUpdate screwed it up for no apparent reason. Even my Exterior IP on the Network Meter gadget says ‘No Connection’. Now I got internet connection after I disconnected and reconnected my network card but my External IP said ‘Error 0’. So I went to refresh it, and it comes up with the proper external IP. Then I went to run LiveUpdate again and they’ve got a new patch this time, so I applied it but then Norton closed automatically while it’s in the middle of closing other programs and it’s not on my taskbar anymore. I couldn’t even open it back up so I rebooted again, and when I got back into Windows again everything is normally behaving so far.

I’d never seen any of this happen before, but luckily my Norton didn’t get destroyed other than fucking up my internet connection.

Windows 10 Technical Difficulties + Moar Cute Kitteh Photoz!

Sorry for not posting a couple days ago, my PC ran into a crash problem while booting to Windows 10. I’m thinking either my SSD is going bad, half of my memory sticks are going bad, or just a motherboard issue. Anyway, I’m back in business… for now. Oh, I took a few more cat photos of my two adorable cat partners:

I guess Stewie loves to sleep on my rug in my bedroom. 😀

Adios, Windows 7!

Papa Smurf and I got rid of Windows 7 and installed Windows 10 on my computer yesterday, and we also configured some other things like removing apps that we don’t want to use such as Cortana, Xbox Live, etc. So far, everything should be up to date for right now. 🙂 And now for no reason here’s a picture I drew using Paint 3D under it with my Wacom tablet:

Saturday Afternoon Open Thread

Today is a breezy but nice day, Papa Smurf and I went out in the backyard to bag up piles of yard waste such as twigs, pinecones, pine needles, etc. I was taking control of the bags while he uses the shovel to put the crap in them. It only took about 20 to 30 minutes to get it done, and so far we bagged up a total of seven bags of yard garbage.

On another note, I watched this video from the Tonight Show where Jimmy Fallon is showing photos of funny or weird signs sent in by random people who have seen them in his segment, Bad Signs:

I totally laughed my ass off on the For Sale sign with another sign below it says ‘Free Pizza With Purchase of House’. Ohhh man, that sign just looks wrong. 😛

Afternoon Open Thread

There wasn’t much to report today. I went to do a couple of chores this afternoon because we’re gonna have a house inspection soon. First one is cleaning the kitchen floor by sweeping the crap up, washing it with a damp rag and some soap, rinsing it, and then drying it off with a towel. The other is brushing the carpets in the living room, the hallway and my bedroom so that Papa Smurf can run the vacuum and hit them with it. I hate doing chores, but they need to be done right away.

And before I go do something else, here’s a random Dorkly video that I was watching a couple days ago:

Monday Open Thread

I went to the doctors at 7am for my tooth appointment, and they used some kind of laughing gas that made me fall asleep. Then they stuck a couple of needles in my gums so they can carefully yank out two of my wisdom teeth from the left side. The operation was a success, and it lasted about an hour. Good thing I got pain pills that will relieve the pain, and I also got some cotton that will collect blood from the holes on my gums.

Now I just need to get another tooth appointment to get rid of the other half of my wisdom teeth.
