Fudge

I know I'm dating myself, but I walk like Grandpa.


But the knee is slowly improving.   I have to put the brace on when using stairs or I'm on my feet for a while, but there's more range of movement without pain.

You'd think it would be a good time for blogging, February and bum knee and all. Except no matter what browser I use the stupid computer grinds and grinds and gives me a "Not Responding" or just fights me doing anything involving the internet.  I don't think it's bandwidth - once I get to Netflix I stream fine.   And using the cell phone and the web works fine.  Norton says it can't find anything bad.  So I'm thinking that there's a conflict somewhere - something on the computer that doesn't play well with something in browsers.

But I can't figure it out.  So I'm doing everything via right index finger and cell phone.

Which is a bloody nuisance.

  3. Hang in there - put a circle of salt around your computer chair, mutter "Omni Omni VOR" (Murphy's Law can explain) then go on hold at Comcast.

  4. Doesn't Borepatch live in your area now? Give a shout out to him for computer assistance.

    One thing you might try is to order a live CD of Mint Linux to run on your computer, see if you're able to navigate using it. If it's as slow as Windows you'll know it's a hardware problem other than a software problem.

  5. Had the same problem after the Jan update to Windows 10. I found that the RapportServices (part of the Trusteer app) was a CPU hog. I uninstalled Trusteer and things are much better.

    Glad to hear the peg is getting better.

    1. Ah ha! I did install 10 when it came out. And it is acting like something is sucking CPU away. I will investigate.
