My inbox is empty! Sadly, that's because Thunderbird or Windows or something ate them. I turned on my computer and got the light blue screen of near death. I was informed that the disk needed to be checked, so Windows thoughtfully did that for me, and then deleted a bunch of corrupt files. Which seem to have been the pile of unanswered emails in my inbox. Happily Sadly, my backup is from about a month ago, so a month's worth of emails are lost forever.
My next computer is going to be a Mac.
Except the budget does not really stretch to a Mac these days, so I think I'm going to go for a netbook. Two of the people at this training course I was just at had them, and they looked great- small, cheap, and light. Not that I was shopping for them online during some of the lectures or anything. Not me.
