Things Done

Firstly, I sat down and made myself go through properly step by step and work out what was causing the repeated Blue Screens of Death on this laptop.    I found it was a hardware problem with one of the memory cards.  So I swapped out and tested memory cards!  And then I bought new memory to replace the one that was duff (although I must say this machine seems to be running quite happily on just the remaining 2Gb at the moment.   (2Gb of RAM! I remember when a 1Gb hard disk was big!)

And we took the living room apart and cleaned it unmercifully to within an inch of its life.
