Yeah, not so much. I’ve spent the last twenty-four hours backing up and reformatting my harddrive. Still not fully back to normal, but it’s getting there. I can now open Facebook without having to wait ten minutes for the damn page to load.
I think it all happened when I downloaded a client patch to play a Windows dedicated MMO. See, I own a Macbook which won’t let me play Lord of the Rings from the comfort of my bed without stealing my husbands often crumb-covered and slightly greasy (I don’t want to know) Vaio.
So I began a hunt for a patch that would let me play LOTRO, Fable, Jade Empire and Mass Effect 1&2 on my Mac. What I got was a quickly uninstalled useless POS that didn’t work with either Bioware or Turbine produced games (what the hell?) and then began to suffer from Windows NT style lag and freezing. I swear I was living in terror of a blue screen! The worst part is that when Mac boots up, there is a period where you do get a blue screen as part of the process. I about wet my pants when I say it before realizing that was normal.
So, here I am with a fully reformatted computer and an external hard drive that only lets me access info, but not save to it from my Mac. Thank heaven I had about a million SD cards all buried in my purse. Yeah, I’m a little paranoid about running out of room on one with my camera craziness. So what?
All that by way of saying I failed to save the photos I had planned a fantastic blog around. Sorry. In consolation, revel in a Turian Batman. And those who claim Thane is more Batman than Garrus, I remind you the Drell was a freakin’ assassin! Garrus just got tired of red tape in fighting crime. So there!
If you haven’t played the game, don’t bother mocking me. I know.
