I Hate Computers -.-

Well, after having spent Memorial Day weekend trying to program a ColdFusion site to consume ASP.NET web services, and almost every night this past week trying to program a ColdFusion site to consume ASP.NET web services, and most of yesterday trying to program a ColdFusion site to consume ASP.NET web services, I get to spend pretty much all day today trying to program a ColdFusion site to consume ASP.NET web services.

Have I mentioned that ColdFusion doesn't like ASP.NET web services? And that neither do I? Oh well.

But y'know, I'd take a break and play a game on my own computer except that ever since last night it's been pitching BSoD at me. But hey, at least I've got an iPad. I can gripe about it all to the internet!

In other news, I did enjoy "Amy's Choice" on Doctor Who last night. Good ep. :)

It's Dead, Jim

From the "Ain't I Got Enough to Contend With" department, the diagnosis on my computer -- using my best guess and some Googling -- is that my video card died and was taking the rest of the computer with it. Of course, I didn't work that out until I wiped it out and reinstalled the factory-loaded image of the machine.

I have an external "backup point" from last December saved, but the machine claims it can't use it; I'm guessing because it's a Windows 7 backup whereas the factory image is running Vista. So I'm now installing the Windows 7 upgrade, in the hopes that it will be able to use the December restore point to rebuild the system. My data is backed up by Carbonite, so assuming I get the system in place, Carbonite will fix the data. I hope.

Meanwhile, I need to go to Best Buy tomorrow and get a new video card, and hope that is the end of this particular mess.

I wonder if I could get LotRO to run in the Windows emulator on a Mac. And I wonder if it wouldn't just be all the same pain but with a higher price tag.

Meanwhile, I'm glad I have this iPad.
