... my laptop just shouted 'You're an idiot!' at me.

I. Just. What.

(I think it's breaking down. Most of it just — doesn't work anymore, apps and scrolling menus and folders and documents don't respond to any kind of stimulation, the dock might as well not be there at all. The only thing still going is the Internet, and that's only because I left Firefox open. This feud will never end.

Still, I wasn't quite expecting it to add insult to injury so literally.)

Literally shouted?! Because that sounds like some freaky virus you've got there!

Maybe give it a flu jab??

I mean. Yeah! who does that? Thing is, I'm pretty sure it's my own voice — I've been recording a few podfics on garageband, and possibly the laptop is taking it from there. STILL FREAKY. JESUS.

I'm not quite sure how to clean it, tbh, I've never had a virus before (just soy sauce). I'll be rebooting it first, see what that does, and if it doesn't work I'll just erase everything and reinitialize the system, I guess. I've got most of it saved up on a harddrive, thankfully.

That's basically how I've always dealt with system meld-downs - in fact, am thinking of doing the same on this system. You lose a lot of bloatware, too, so win-win!

I just hope, in case it is a virus, that erasing the system will erase it too. :/ me and technology just don't mix.

That is quite freaky. o.o

I hope it's nothing serious! I'm really terrible with technology, too. My laptop gave me the Blue Screen of Death a couple of times, but it hasn't acted up lately, so... /crosses fingers

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING ON. So far I'm surviving on browsing the internet since it's, uh, pretty much the last thing I can do; also a lot of The Social Network fic. what is this life thing you speak of

Hee, The Social Network fic! I... still haven't seen that movie. /fails Although I did finally watch Inception, did I tell you? And indulged in fic for a while. i don't know what this life thing is as i certainly am not in possession of one either

/sprinkles magical fairy dust on your laptop

The Social Network is basically the story of 1. Facebook, and 2. big, epic, tragic break-up between the two main characters. At this point it's not even subtext anymore. o/ it's rather fantastic. It's wonderfully-played, very well-written, and I rather love the fandom, lurker that I am. Go see it! :D as for Inception, I'd seen it twice when it came out, and I was. Um. I dunno — I liked it, a lot, but I was expecting more mind-fuck? I guess? which is rather a strange thing to say. But I went in thinking we were going to have a lot of different dreams entangled together, and instead we had like, four. But it's a good movie, regardless. As for fic, it's funny, because I came out of the cinema thinking people would be all over Cobb/Saito, and then it was all Arthur/Eames everywhere. Which is nice in its own way, but it surprised me. ANYWAY. /le ramble

Laptop seems to be working fine now that I've restarted it, so hopefully it'll stay that way. Yeah.

Oooh, epic tragic break-ups are always good :D /adds it to the list of things to see

Yeah, when I first saw Inception, none of the pairings really jumped out at me, and then when I saw the sheer amount of Arthur/Eames fic, I started reading, and FrUK fangirl that I am, I started seeing Arthur/Francis in their characters. /has her FrUK goggles on and isn't taking them off, nope

And then I've been lurking a bit in the X-Men: First Class fandom, but it's difficult, because while I did enjoy the movie, I'm not really a huge X-Men fan, so there are all these other characters popping up and I have no idea who they are :P

It's funny - last night, my brother's computer just died. And now there are pop-up messages saying the hard drive's damaged, and, just. ugh. Technology :\

The problem is that when you've already seen it, the entire movie's heartbreaking. By the end you just want them to kiss and make up already. D:

Cobb/Saito was the only prominent one I could see taking off — Cobb/Mal I just couldn't see people shipping very much, and Arthur/Adriane might have been a pleasant side pairing. Also, Saito's fucking fabulous and deserves much fic. And then Arthur/Eames took off, and it was a bit baffling. There's a lot of really good, well-written stuff done for them, but I just can't get as interested as in other ships of mine. /shrug

I didn't see X-Men: First Class; I only ever caught snippets at the library. It seems interesting, and I'm told the subtext is thick enough you could cut through it with a knife. Mostly I'm really looking forward to Avengers fandom — I love the Iron Man movies far more than I probably should, and although I saw neither Thor nor Captain America more Tony Stark is always something I can look forward to.

TRUFAX. As I was watching it, I thought - fandom is going to be all over this, I just know it. And I was right! As for fic, I'm reading one right now, a daycare!verse series where Charles takes care of toddler!mutants and Erik's an engineer they're all so domestic and lovely and company picnics andand yeah. yeah. my weakness, they've found it.

I love the Iron Man movies, too! And I didn't see Captain America or Thor :\ I'm actually reaaaally behind with superhero movies. I didn't see The Dark Knight until... well, years after everyone else :P

I have this working theory that over time computers slowly develop artificial intelligence, they just break down completely before they ever reach actual intelligence. And that is why old computers do the weirdest things: they are like particularly stupid babies trying to figure out the world, only with access to vast amounts of information. Thank you for supporting evidence ;)

(Also, you have yet to tell me what you thought of Iron Man!John that bad huh?)

It's about two a.m. here and I've got class tomorrow, so I'm going to turn this disfunctioning laptop off and hope for the best but it shall be the first thing I do whenever I can make it work again, be it tomorrow or whenever. I've written it on a post-it and everything.

I look forward to your opinion.

1. I HAVE NO IDEA. It, uh, seems to be working now that I've restarted it, so hopefully it was a false alert.

2. ahahahahahhhhhhh. Four laptops in three years, I'm not even — what. I'm an uni student! I don't have the money for this. :/ thankfully, all three previous ones were second-hand, and one came free because the previous was still under warrancy. This one is only about eight months old.

Whenever you call me sweetie I get River Song flashbacks — I'm not quite sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. I guess it might mean you have great hair.

I know! 'tis a feud.

You should take your computer to an exorcist. And then to the repairman.

Well, it appears to be working now, so the exorcism session can wait a bit. It was still freaky as hell, though. /prods laptop

Awww!! Aren't you such a sweetheart?? /smirks

I'm impress by your laptop's capacity of fixing itself...I'm sure that by now it has programmed its own antivirus XD

Don't be surprised if by tomorrow it has a pair of legs and is jumping out of your window.../chuckles
