Strangely, things, especially the Internet, started to pick up speed around 10:00 p.m. last night ... this morning at work I discovered that there'd been power outages all over the city, including my neighbourhood. But thanks to living across the street from a police station and thus being included on the emergency power grid, I never knew. So, even though I had electricity, it wasn't at the level it should be, plus Telus (and therefore the Internet) was in difficulties as well. Guess I should have been listening to the radio instead of playing comedy CDs on the stereo as I worked. :p
Tonight's plan: over to Future Shop to buy a copy of Norton (stopped at home first because I knew an Amazon parcel was in transit, and lo ... I had a pickup notice in my mailbox, so I can pick that up on the way). Then I have to reinstall the rest of McAfee temporarily so that I can access my Outlook email (hopefully) and then uninstall the thing properly, followed by installing Norton. And then I have three years of Windows XP updates to download ... WHEEE!
