Yay, I got my tail back!  
Finally, finally, I have my computer back. Finally!

How long was I out? Three, four months?

Five days? What do you mean five days? :P I MISSED YOU MORE THAN FIVE DAYS!!!

Well, it seems there was a stronger bout of electricity and that is very damaging because I didn't have a stabiliser (turns out, surge suppressor aren't enough). And then the guy proceeded to tell me all the things that are Not Good for your computer and can ultimately ruin them and, oh, my god, I'm surprised these things even work at all.

[Because just about everything can ruin them.]Turning it on and off too fast
Running a bunch of programs at once
Unplugging it when 'it just doesn't answer'
Forcing a program out because it's slow
Playing games that the computer barely handles them
Not having a firewall
Leaving it on for ages
Suspicious files
Softwares from unknown sources (and downloading suspicious attachments)
De-installing stuff (it doesn't work, guys, not for reals)
Poke it and hit it (OH MY GOD)
Not updating the new systems
Even if you're using a mac, for god's sake, don't click on a page that has a warning that it might damage your computer
Not emptying your trash
Not clearing your cookies and history once in a while
Rebooting too often
Never rebooting
And yeah, putting CDs, DVDs backwards

In other words:

careful with this

The most awkward bit was when he asked me what did I do. This isn't counting computer content, of course. Naturally I said, "Nothing!" He said, "Hmmm huh."

it wasn't me, it's the computer

Then I admitted I put a CD backwards (DON'T JUDGE ME!!!!!!) and he said, okay, that still doesn't explain it. I didn't want to admit I was looking at porny gifs. Surely that's safe, right? You're all here. ^^

But it's back. Oh! And then he said, honest-to-god, that my computer was dirty (OMG!!!) so it needed a good cleaning. I was super embarrassed thinking about all the stuff in here, but then I realised he meant, you know, bytes and stuff. At least that's what I think he meant, I didn't want to ask.

I admit I'm a bit scared. I'm sort of waiting this thing is going to crash any second. I have cero confidence. And I'm also afraid that because I am "waiting" for something to happen something will happen. It's a vicious circle. And I probably won't go looking for porny gifs any time soon. How sad is that?

But I won't complain because I can catch up on dm_asp_fest and all the lovely fic that was posted.

I've got my tail back! YAYAYAYAY!

You and your dirty, dirty computer!


I love when they say, "When was the last time you did X." And I go, "What?" The look of horror on their faces is priceless. :)))

Me and my dirty computer are back on business! :D:D

I love when they say, "When was the last time you did X." And I go, "What?" The look of horror on their faces is priceless. :)

LOL I KNOW! I went with, "I don't want to talk about it." I actually said that because I didn't even know you had to do/don't do some of that stuff. Man.

*mega glomp*

Yaay!! You're back! :DDD
*squishes you*
Totally agree, it feels like ages!

Um, I think I'm guilty of a disturbing amount of those things. Poor computer. *pets it*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 02:29 pm (UTC)
Feels like it was a lot longer. Not even kidding. ^^

Oh yes, you have your own naughty folder all right. XD

Yaaaaaaaaaay!!!! Don't ever leave us again! Hear that, Capitu's computer? No breaking! Ever! You work until she buys a new computer--even if that's 20 years from now--and transfers all her porn data over.

Welcome back to cyber fun. :D
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 06:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you!!!!

I have a backup now. I neglected to make one in a while. But yeah, for a while I was considering if I had to get a new one because they didn't know if it was going to work or not. ^^

So good to be back! *glomp*

I knew you are back when those lovely comments for dm_asp_fest came flooding in. :) Ah, you and your dirty computer! A duster helps, I hear. Buahahahaha. *cough* *giggles some more at own silly jokes*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 06:52 pm (UTC)
LOL! ♥ ♥ ♥

I've been SO dying to comment on the fics and art! Last night I even dreamt the fest finished posting and I was still without computer. ^^

I forgot to add, in cased I am a bit of a Seer, there was one fic nearing the 20K another around 10K and one more art among others. *grins*

*twirls you*

I've missed you!!!!

YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <33333

Gods, I'm SO happy you're back, and that is an understatement so a lot a lot a lot!

When he says dirty, he probably means that literally, and I'm not being funny. Mine ran MUCH faster once they took it apart and literally blew all the dust and dirt and crap out of the fan (which was making it overheat). I highly recommend such a procedure, if that is, indeed, what he means.

But back to happiness! You're BACK!!!!!!!!!!!

*hugs you for days!*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
Yeah, he was literal about the dirt. LOL But you know, when you're ~guilty~. ^^

Yes, that's what he said. I need to keep it clean, and covered because I have a big window on the side, and even though it has thick curtains, dust is dust and will get to it.

But I'm back!!!!!! :D:D:D

OOOOOH, you DIRTY GIRL with your DIRTY COMPUTER. You deserve to stand in the corner ;-)

So glad you're back. Everything just felt wrong. ♥
welcome to villa cariño!: waggly tail [capitu]capitu on September 1st, 2014 06:57 pm (UTC)

I did feel dirty. I was like, "but, but, but (how do you know??)" *shakes head* and inside me was thinking about all teh porn. Probably not that kind of dirty.

dragontaradragontara on September 1st, 2014 04:17 pm (UTC)
Great to have you back! :D

I'm also happy that you survived the computer guy - they can be quite intimidating...

I had to get my computer checked last week at work, we have a guy for that, and I was so scared that somehow he'd find out what filthy things I've been doing with my comp and then he'd out me to everyone. I was so stressed.

Now my comp works really well and I can continue doing those lovely filthy things again... ;)
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 06:59 pm (UTC)

It's pretty weird. It's like going to the priest and have them asking you when was the last time you confessed or I don't know, tech guys are intimidating. But mine was nice and really helpful, and put up with me calling him several times (sometimes a day!). And he got it fixed. I can't complain. :)

Roelroelliej on September 1st, 2014 05:04 pm (UTC)

Welcome back, sweetheart!! <3

Thank you! I missed you!!!!

asdfghjhgfdsdfgh you're back!!!! *squishes you* Don't ever leave again.

I think I do pretty much all of those things to my laptop, but thankfully I live with a computer genius so when it stops working I can just thrust it in his hands and tell him to fix it before I throw it through a window, haha!

Missed you BB! <3
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 07:06 pm (UTC)
LOL You're lucky you have a computer genius right there. :D All I manage to do safely to it is yell at it, which thankfully IS safe to do.

I missed you, too! When I was counting the day I couldn't believe it was only 5. It felt like ages to me! No joke. ^^

Yay for your porn tail! So glad to have you back!
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 07:07 pm (UTC)

Yeah. I felt like a puppy with no tail being off. ^^ But now I got both back. I said I wasn't going to look at gifs, but alas, too late now. LOL

Yay you're back! I missed you and your recs and seeing your comments every where and, just, your general awesomeness. ::squishes you::

*hugs you*

Hey, it's so good to have you back! *hugs*
LJ wasn't the same without you! It felt like The Burrow without Molly making it a home ;-). Good luck with your 'clean' laptop. Tell him he'll be mercilessly replaced if he doesn't behave! *growls and bares teeth at your laptop*
welcome to villa cariño!capitu on September 1st, 2014 08:23 pm (UTC)
This right here is the nicest thing anyone has said to me. *glomps*

My clean computer is not going to be clean much longer. Oh wait, you meant the dust, right? Yeah, I'm keeping it that way. XD

celestlyncelestlyn on September 1st, 2014 07:39 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm probably guilty of 90% of those things. It's no wonder I go through laptops like changes of clothes. Sad...

So I had LJ up on my desktop PC, which might actually be more my (adult) son's. It happened to be on the page you posted about your computer melt-down. Here's the conversation:

Son: "Ha, ha! This sucks so much it should be hanging around a glory hole or something!"

Me: "Oh yeah, funny!"

Son: "Well, it's posted on YOUR journal!"

Me: "It's a NEWSFEED! Like facebook or twitter!"

Son: "Oh, Ok..."

Me: (silently to myself) "Please don't go looking at what I'VE posted on my journal."

LOL OH my god!!! I feel bad laughing!!! But that sounds so wrong out of context!!!! LOL

I'm so sorry. *grins* But you know, if it wasn't me it was going to be someone else. ;)
