You may be surprised to hear I spent most of my time today listening or watching to football. I had little energy to do anything else. While watching West Ham United defeat Manchester City to many peoples surprise I also attempted to fix the other laptop. This I considered finished and then I began to download Windows 10 onto it in an effort to complete the healing process and also to finally remove !in 8.1 and it's awkwardness. Hours ago, long before the teams took the field I began. Hours later we are still at the 'Upgrading Windows' bit. 40% completed it claims while still only on the 'installing features & drivers bit.' I suspect I may be here for some time and the electric bill will be screaming at me soon!
However I see some satisfaction. By not getting the anti virus in quick enough I found I had those annoying advert that arise whenever you attempt to search something. I also encountered some difficulty downloading items but that I believe was because 'McAfee' was used as an antivirus and had established itself everywhere already thus stopping other things working. We shall soon (maybe) see if I have overcome this after removing as much of 'McAfee' as I can find. He, like 'Norton' like to get in everywhere and must be removed item by item. This means my emergency laptop will soon be ready, once new Memory is installed, to work properly. I used 'Crucial' as it is efficient to get memory however the brute is not allowing me to log in constantly telling me my password etc is wrong. I change it and it is still wrong. They want shooting I say. I will fix that later, when I can be bothered.
In days to come people will ask, where were you when Japan defeated mighty South Africa in the Rugby World Cup? I will answer "Watching West Ham defeat Manchester City like normal people would be." If they ask whether I watched the opening ceremony (I never watch the tedious opening ceremonies) I will say "I was watching St Mirren lose to Raith Rovers like normal people would be!"
And if they foolishly ask about GB beating Aussieland at Tennis I will say "What?" "I'm sorry, I was having a life!"
p.s. The Kiwis will win the rugby anyway, they always do!
