...there really is no summary for this
children of dune - leto 1

In this order:

1.) My kindle screen broke.
2.) youtube stopped working.
3.) Mozilla errored out on googledocs and then crashed, failed, and no go.
4.) Firefox 4 Beta also did that, then erased my extensions, then did something horrible to itself. Also, on principle, wtf, app pin is so not a replacement for Permanent Tabs.
5.) Chrome cannot load my gateway email addy and has no extra toolbars and okay, it needs more extensions and it's not very intuitive. And it crashes.
6.) Network problems at work continue to make it hard to get consistent access. As my entire job requires me to test networked and internet accessible programs, this is kinda a downer.
7.) Company who owns my thegateway email addy says I have not paid for three months no matter how many times I verify I did.
8.) Student loan payment went up like whoa. Like...wtf.
9.) Still cannot get into googledocs.
10.) Had to work on holiday.
11.) Still have a menstrual cycle. It really reminded me. Like, a lot.

If I get eaten by a whale, I honestly won't even be surprised. I mean, the surprise will be if I make it through the day without my aura of technological destruction sending satellites crashing down on our heads and EMPing us by the force of my will or something, IDK.

There is not enough coffee in the world for this.

Just reading your list gave me a shiver of dread. I'm planning to root a Nook Color to make it into a workable Android tablet, and I am currently superstitiously waving good-aura'd things around myself to ward off any spillover from what is obviously the Tech Gods being SO out to get you.

Hang in there. Surely it must pass soon!

'I'm planning to root a Nook Color to make it into a workable Android tablet'

?? Is this like jailbreaking a smartphone?

It's actually basically doing an end-run around all the stuff off the top that B&N puts on the Nook, so you can use the Android OS that's already on it! There are great instructions here at Ars Technica.

If you get eaten by a whale, try to come out with all the ambergris you can get. It'll help pay the loans.

Hee! Now *that* is the power of positive thinking, right there!

...I'm a little afraid to comment for fear that it's, like, contagious or something.

*hugs gingerly*

Google Chrome is EVIL.

*insert hug here*

So sorry. Maybe tomorrow your run of really horrible things will change? Hoping for the best.
