The few of you that do read this may be wondering why I haven’t posted in 5 days! Believe it or not, it’s not by choice.
I have still been overloaded with work and school. There are about 400 pages of reading (and about 40 pages of notes) that I have to do for one class. Not to mention my LSAT Prep-Course homework (which is excrutiatingly plentiful). And yes, I still feel somewhat stuffed up and ill. But neither of those two things are what’s kept me away!
Through some unfortunately browsing I became infected with a bevy of malware, a trojan and some annoying adware. Manual cleanup would have taken the better portion of the week and so I decided that a full system reformat was the way to go. I had everything back up, anyway (or so I thought!).
So lalala I did it and everything went smoothly. Until I realized that i’d forgotten to back up my precious collection of fonts. Devastated by the loss i worked well into the night to find replacements for my missing pixels! Unfortunately, I went just the teensiest bit overboard. I had installed slightly less than 18-Thousand (18,000!) fonts onto my 3GB Memory machine. Whoops!
Needless to say this caused some issues. Add in some haphazard font deletion and I was in a position to have to reformat all over again. (Never delete your computer’s pre-installed fonts people!) Anyway. It’s this second reformat that took up the most time, but it is now mostly complete. A game and all of my graphic editing software has yet to be re-installed. And i’m too lazy to start restoring all my old documents but I thought i’d let you all in on the secret to my absense!
The major points of restoration will have to be put on the backburner, however. I have 3 finals and a 15 page paper due sometime in the next two weeks. Wish me luck!
