My Tech Support Hero

Day 49. 161 pages, 58,131 words. Ugh, not really getting anywhere with these short stories, but I guess I’ve been up against a few challenges.

Turns out there was nothing (identifiably) wrong with my motherboard, cabling, graphics card, or anything else. It was just my monitor that was fucked.

Now, thanks to the grand efforts of Heikki (and the saintly patience of Kristiina), I have a new monitor, bigger and better than the last. Heikki also vacuumed and air-mist-vapour-cleaned my rig from top to bottom.

Additionally, and this is no small thing, his tech support work necessitated my finally cleaning out and vacuuming my office, which was several years overdue.

I am deeply, deeply obliged.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    Literally years?

    Is “aiir” a thing or were you just double-i’ing out of Finnish habit?
