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.
