Computer Problems Almost Do Me In -- But I Live to Scream Another Day
June 17, 2010  | By David Bianculli  | 29 comments

The reason updates have been sluggish last week and this: a series of disconnected, disconcerting computer problems, requiring a repair, a replacement, some wholesale data movement and password changes -- and, today, hours on the phone with every third tech-support specialist in Mumbai...

But things are back, and fixed. Today's Best Bets are up, finally. But I'm down, so instead of writing an angry next-day reaction to CBS's absurdly frustrating Paley Museum special about TV's Biggest Surprises, I'm going to give myself the afternoon off. Away from the computer.

The daily grind is doable again, the hardware is fixed, the software is loaded, but I need some space.

In space, I'm told, no one can hear you scream...

Dave,

I suggest you drink heavily. Trust me, I'm Pre-Med.
It couldn't hurt.

[Under future-doctors' orders, I gladly comply. There is some Oban in my near future. Thanks for the pre-prescription. -- David B.]

How could the Paley people leave off the finale of St. Elsewhere? That says it all!!

[Absolutely. That was one of the most frustrating things. And I'm sorry, but Jonny Fairplay from "Survivor" as one of TV's biggest surprises? Only as a selection... -- David B.]

Hmm... Wasn't St. Elsewhere an NBC program? And isn't survivor a CBS program? This doesn't pass the smell test.

At least you still have your sense of humor intact! Good for you! And I hope you don't read this until at least tomorrow, and are now feeling a bit better after taking your prescription. :)
Thanks for caring so much about this site and us.

I blame "Global Warming"...glad you're back.

Lucky for your fans you didn't wait 50+ days to tackle the problem. What?

I also had the same problem as you during this time but I quickly fixed it and now everything is back to normal, hopefully you guys won't have the same problem because of it will make us feel uncomfortable.
