I have a couple laptops that have basically died while trying to install service pack one on windows 7. They get stuck on one file. There is little to do to recover. I usually end up restaging the computer. I've tried repairs and stitching and booting in to safe mode to kill the update. Nothing works. I even have to kill the partition to get the system to follow through with the install. I have to boot in linux and wipe the first 100k or so of the drive so it looks blank. I tis all a rich tapestry.
Roll on. Roll on. God almighty help me roll on.
I can't remember the last time I walked to a place to get breakfast, ate it, paid for it, left and continued my walk. Been so long.
I just might be feeling the photography itch again. Not sure.
