That was scary

Some time last night I made the apparently colossal mistake of trying to boot my computer in safe mode. Reader, that did not work out.

I was unable to even access my password screen. After hours of fruitless frantic rebooting and phone-searching for a solution (it's no use telling me how to solve the issue from the troubleshoot menu if I can't access the troubleshoot menu) I gave up and went to bed past my bedtime. Then I woke up before my alarm (bleh) spent some more time fruitlessly trying to fix it to no avail. Then I took a shower and ate breakfast and when I tried again I could suddenly access the troubleshoot menu! So I fixed my computer, copied some important files I hadn't backed up yet and checked if it booted properly now. It did.

I don't even know. But hey! I have my computer back!


Exchange news: Self, you need to stop claiming pinch-hits and being an idiot. You're not even in that exchange! WHY

Other Exchange news: Night on Fic Mountain progressing as it should. Worldbuilding exchange fast approaching (eep!).


And now I'm going to go read about the time when the Seine rose 8m62 (23'3") and Paris flooded. AND THEN IT FROZE OVER. Good times.
