Computer Issues

Yeah, speaking of reset buttons . . . .

I restarted my computer yesterday morning and ever since it’s been throwing me into temporary accounts, which don’t have all of my shortcuts or my saved passwords (for low-threat sites like this blog) and also won’t allow me to directly access any of my files–or some of my applications. I tried restarting–which only resulted in multiple temporary accounts. Then I tried copying all of my files over to this temporary account–I can find them in File Explorer, at least. And setting up at least what I could.

Then I shut the computer off last night and . . . right back to a new temporary account this morning. Clearly, this approach is not going to work.

I’ve managed to find a set of instructions on things to try in order to fix this, so I suppose that’s next. For however long that takes.

First up is copying all of my files off somewhere safe, just in case. Then into the wonderful world of arcane computer instructions.

Wish me luck. I need it.

Wow! It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted. Didn’t mean to do that.

Well, I have an excuse for last weekend. Something happened during what should have been an ordinary update and all of a sudden my computer forgot who I was and all the things I have set up to make getting to what I use most easy. Worse, much worse, it wouldn’t let me access any of my files. I spent most of the weekend correcting the problem.

Also, I’m finding Wednesdays just aren’t a convenient day to post right now. For the moment, I think I’ll scale back to Sundays.

Adding to the technology frustration, Amazon still hasn’t updated the new cover of FIRE AND EARTH.

I updated the new cover about two weeks ago, but it still doesn’t show up on the product page. Well, I still have to finish the new blurb and a couple of other things. Hopefully it will all update after that. So, I’ll try to take care of that next and then get back to writing the new project, working title DRAGON AGAINST DRAGON (though I hope to come up with something better soon).
