Just a quick note to say that I might not be around much over the next week. My bloody computer died on me on Thursday morning, which coincidentally was the day of my mother-in-law's funeral. Seeing as she generously paid for the computer in the first place, I suppose there's some sort of justice in that.
Anyway, it came up with a message saying UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME, which I suspect is Bill Gates for "Your hard disk's fucked, Guvnor." So I'm typing this round at the library, where I'm about to start Googling relevant stuff.
No idea what happens next - depends on what I find - but I'll be here for another 40 minutes, and then my next chance to get online will be when the library is next open, on Tuesday.
See ya whenever.
