Don't get me wrong, I adore Great Lakes summers up here, they're much, much more pleasant than a Florida summer ever was (they're akin to Florida in January/February -- just right) But when we get a heatwave, it sucks -- no A/C is common. We're forecast to be in the 90's tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday < cries >
I will be happy if it's a dry heat, I'll deal with that in the sprinkler, but if it's hot AND humid, there's no escaping that.

I'm going to try to spend most of the upcoming hot few days in the cooler basement building things.
Project Numero Uno is a shoe rack for the front hall's coat closet to house our out-of-season winter boots, and the rain boots. It's a cluttered mess on the floor in there & I'm sick of it, so I'm building something to organize them all with. We have leftover wood from the kids' bunk bed that I'm repurposing.
The bunk is never going back together, they don't want it that way & their bedroom has a gabled ceiling, can't work in there anyway. The top bunk had a staircase for accessing it instead of a ladder, and each stair was also a storage drawer. Those live in their bedroom closet organizing their toys, but the back wall of the staircase & connecting pieces of wood were just set aside in the basement. They're good, sturdy pieces, they should make a decent rack.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the cut scraps from them, or the other various pieces of leftover scraps from other things down there, but I'll think of something. Necessity might be the mother of invention, but so can be weather avoidance, right?

Just popping in to let you all know that LookingForABetterLife/Blue won't be around until he gets his computer fixed. Windows updates seems to have screwed things up.


I figured it was only a matter of time before someone else joined the club
His best bet if he's unable to do anything is to just reinstall Windows, that's the best advice I have from BTDT with 2 computers recently.

Poop. Thanks for the heads up.

I am in a LOT of physical pain and going to rest right now.

Oh Sweetie, I wish I could do something, but alas, too far away.
Here is a great big hug a prayer and one of the many, perhaps Shed scenarios with Dragons.

Hello Nyiah, I don't think we have been introduced.
I apologize if we have and if not. I am so stressed I don't care if I put my shoes on the right way

Hello
So I am curious. Which update is it that is causing all this havoc?
We have a computer forum where I may take this question.

Any Who. I like your avatar and you sound so "active" it leaves me breathless. Go Girl.

/me pours WIS a Shed special. Heavy on the special...

A hundred and eleventy hours is not a number that should describe someones working week.

ETA It may amuse you to know that the last pic you posted (woman at water cooler, vodka, at work) looked more to me that the lady in question was trying to urinate in the glass jar on the floor, cocked leg, delicate aim.

I'm pretty sure I've seen you around here & there in threads, but I don't think we've spoken < waves >



So I am curious. Which update is it that is causing all this havoc?
We have a computer forum where I may take this question.

Windows 10's Update 1803 is causing all kinds of havoc for people. One of the more common "breaking of computers" I've read about is what happened to me & my husband on our respective computers. When the update is installed enough to need to reboot the computer, it does, but instead of completing the update, gets you stuck in a loop where you have to select your keyboard set-up, then takes you to a selection screen that is virtually useless. You can't Renew, Rollback, Choose Another System, Continue or anything. All you can do is just reboot & go right back to it, it's a hopeless loop of frustration.

Even though I made a USB with Win10 on it to try to repair whatever it broke, that didn't help at all. Hell, I couldn't even boot in Safe Mode, or access the Boot Menu to begin with.

There's some articles about it, this article describes that loop.
The only thing I could do was reinstall Win10, nothing else worked. It re-downloaded the update & that went off without a hitch the second time. I'm not sure what was wrong with Win10 before, but there was something it did not like in there & it went all to crap quick.

At the moment, my laptop appears to be functioning fine post-reinstall, but my husband's desktop is still without sound (he's not a happy camper) There's still issues despite a clean reinstall, that being one of them. I've been reading that Black Screens of Death are happening for certain brands, mouse function is slowed/not working, etc. They didn't vet this update too well before they let it loose.

If you reinstall, you may end up with a Windows.old file in the Windows folder. If it works right like it did for me, you'll have personal files like photos and such auto-saved to it & not erased. However, I stress it might not work, because my husband's stuff is lost, it didn't make a .old file for his. Nothing particularly important, mostly backgrounds of his, but he's still not pleased.
I was so paranoid about that happening to me that I transferred my entire photo & videos folder to his computer when it was back up to par, before mine could force the update (I've never seen an update force itself when there's an active file transfer) It was around 150 gigs of pictures & home videos, and took 7 hours to complete, but it's on his computer now. Turns out I didn't need to do that (they were all in the .old file) but you can never be too cautious anymore.


Any Who. I like your avatar and you sound so "active" it leaves me breathless. Go Girl.

< chuckles > It's hard to go wrong with kittens, and Giorgio Kitten is adorably apt for the site

I'm not as active as I should be, but I'm working on getting off my butt more often. We got lazy this past winter, more than normal, and we (the adults) can feel it now. Probably should have kept up on the daily after dinner walks, knee-deep snow & single digit temps or not.

It is a respite from villification, judgement and ill formed opinion.

You will enjoy the freedom here ...

No judgements ... just friends.
