AH IS BAK!!! Just got empluggerated.
This week has been an ordeal because of the heat - yesterday broke all-time records in Seattle by three degrees - it was 103°F and the record was broken, too, for the low temperature (it was two degrees hotter than had been recorded before). Heat affects neurological diseases in an unpleasant way - more or less it's like previews of coming attractions, which in my case is not pretty. It takes time after the heat subsides for the ill-effects to lessen or go away (go away, I hope). If it stops being hot tomorrow I may be back to a manageable level of decrepitude by Monday.
The problem with the computer was just that the video card needed reseating - don't ask me why it waddled away from its proper position. It took them a while to figure that out, and meanwhile ran tests all over the place which turned up nothing. I'm fond of them - I think most of their work is dealing with business hardware, so they take a bit of interest in mine as it's not as boring. I can never remember the behind-the-counter man's name, though, for some reason, even though he says it every time. I was thinking... "Starts with a C, I'm sure... is it one of those ordinary word-type names like cliff or curt?" It's actually Craig, which I may remember now as I've made a point of bloggifying it.

Yes, I think that fits. Here's cliffs, crags and the B.L. all in one:
Actually now I think about it, he's not the Dude as much as the John Goodman character (whoever he was). :-D My mistake!
