Stress, man, stupid things piling up. Some small things, but mainly two larger ones. One, I snapped a little and hollered at Erik, earlier. I was talking to him about something that needed to happen, and he just dropped to the floor and started going through his bookbag while I was speaking, obviously not paying attention. He has focus problems as it is, but this was just too much, I got really pissed off, told him it was incredibly fucking rude and inconsiderate to do so, and that now I was really angry and that he might as well go about his business, because I wasn't talking to him anymore. Really laid it on. I probably shouldn't have, but dammit, everyone just lets him go willy-nilly about his way, not paying attention to stuff, and it drives me nuts. Someone has to make him focus. Hated doing it, but I was seriously angry. He's already so spacey 90% of the time, it makes me crazy.
The other thing is, no surprise, computer issues again. Few days ago, had the system tell me it couldn't boot up due to a missing or corrupt file. Rebooting apparently fixed this. The next day, it reset itself while booting up a couple times, finally asking what I wanted to do. Loading the "last known good configuration" came up OK, and the day after was smooth. Today, it claimed that file was corrupt or missing again, and again booted up on restart. Researching the error, the only info says that this can occur after converting a file system from FAT32 to NTFS...which I haven't done. Well, dunno what to do about that, except wait and see if it happens again, and replace the file. Meanwhile, about an hour ago, while playing a little UT2K4 to calm down, I had a couple oddities happen before the whole system shut down and restarted. As usual, Micro$haft's error reporting was completely useless, claiming it was a "device driver" but not any idea which one. None of my devices are showing any driver errors, naturally, so I had Windows Update go hog wild on my system, and installed just over 75MB worth of update, including stuff to my sound card and cam. Rebooted fine, so now we wait and see how things go.
I'm very much looking forward to the possibility of a new system, when the tax money comes in. Here's hoping.
So, yeah, I don't feel good. My shoulder's been acting up again, and I'm tired. Gotta go finish laundry, and have to do some grocery shopping, neither of which fills me with any desire to do it.
