I'm painting inky waterfalls and huge blue fish while backing up my computer (again), so I can change the operating system (again)... "Intrepid Ibex" is turning out to be intensely annoying, so far precisely NOTHING has worked without at least a day of faffing about. - I spent half the night trying to get my webcam to register me, in any way, as a noise, a motion, a pattern of light... anything... some awareness hiccuped into existence late at night and then winked out again...
WARNING: Contains extremely mild swearing and violent flailing.
So. I am fed up. Downgrading the operating system to what-it-was-back-when-it-worked, and if that doesn't help I'll buy a mac because this box is taking over far too much of my life. This morning, too, thinking about it. And most of the afternoon.
I did leave the house though, and read a book in the park for a bit.
