More blood. Today it didn't even wait for me to go to bed.

The computer I have had for less than a week, even after it's first re-install of windows, still seems to be losing time. A lot of time. Enough that it makes the computer close to sueless, once it gets going - dropping 3-4 hours overnight because it keeps hiccoughing is not useful. I predict arguments with support and having to ship it back some time soon. Pity.

I have been craving curry pasta with tomatoes and chickpeas, but I haven't been able to face a trip to the store on top of everything else. So tonight I made do with what I had (though starting to make dinner at 9:30 may not have been the best choice)

I ended up with a sauce made of onion, garlic, ginger, spices, frozen peppers, frozen peas, frozen spinach, and a mixture of pure soy protein powder and chickpea flour. the result was... weighty. I had no tomatoes and no chickpeas - I will have to add those to the list of things to always have on hand.

On the Good list;

* Got a couple guilt gorillas off my back on work stuff (by staying at work past 7pm)
* Lizard snuck in home before me and left me timbits
* My last ebay purchase arrived - I has tie pins
* I managed to do a fair bit of dish washing
* I've had enough water and alcohol that I might actally sleep once my nose stops bleeding (even if I am on to the Old Krupnik because I'm out of sippable rum)

Is the computer a mac? My old LCII had a small internal battery that held the time memory. Might be an easy fix, if you don't mind getting into a new machine. Or maybe the fight with the support staff will get a lemon out of your house...

nope, that's the CMOS battery - it should only affect time when the machine's turned off. When ithas power and is running, the motherboard doesn't use the battery. This loses time before my eyes, which suggests that the clock that the battery keeps going is dying. That's probably going to mean a new motherboard. I'm not sure if I want to try doing that myself.

And if it's new, make them do it. Yep.
