Monday Morning and the Blue Screen of Death
The weekend has ended and it's back to work. My office computer decided to greet me this morning with the dreaded Blue Screen of Death.
I use three computers in my work area at the office. Unfortunately, my primary computer is the one that likes to reboot on me out of the blue (pun intended), without any warning whatsoever.
This morning, it did not reboot on me. Instead, it offered the more scenic blue screen of death, or as I like to call it: The Blue Screen of Doom-oom-oom-oom-oom. I like to add the word "doom" to things because it sounds more dangerous that way; more likely to evoke emotion when telling a story about it; more ME! I picked up that trait back in 1984 when Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom came out. Always loved that title. It sounded so epic. Exactly the kind of movie in which one might see a man have his heart ripped right out of his chest by an evil priest, while its still beating, and then lowered in to a swirling lava pit of doom!
So... yeah. Blue screen of death killed my project this morning. It wasn't saved. You know the deal. It happens to us all... or at least us PC users. You Mac and Linux users feel free to laugh. I don't mind. Damn blue screen of doom!
