I’ve had about five Blue Screens of Death (BSoD) in the last few days, so I’ve been backing up the important files on my computer. I’m preparing to reformat and re-install Windows and everything else (probably Wednesday). This is why there was no Music Monday, and I’m sure everyone is broken up about it. It would have been Devo, but I got frustrated that their YouTube music videos have disabled embedding, and I couldn’t be bothered to track down other sharing sites while I was backing up files (playing videos was also one of the triggers for blue screens).
In general, I think I’m dropping Music Monday. It was a pleasant distraction maybe a few weeks, but I’m not sure the lag it causes my blog is worth it. There are basically always four embedded videos on my front page, and my wife has commented on that, as well as the fact that posting too often can dilute the content of my site. She thinks this might be why I don’t get as many comments as she does, I think it’s because I’m an enormous jackass to some of the people who comment here. I guess we’ll see…
Today’s Top Ten list and Wednesday Word should be unaffected.
In summary: Music Monday is out, I will be conspicuously absent on Wednesday, and hopefully all goes well and everything gets re-installed on my computer so that I don’t miss a beat in posting.
