I'm not sure this is the cure for what ails me. …
Whilst I was watching a video, surfing the internet and downlaoding upgrades I got a new operating system.
I thought I was on Ubuntu 10.10 but it asked me to insert the 10.04 disc.
Unfortunately that now resides in another continent. A bit far to go for an OS.
I put the 10.10 in anyway. It didn't like it but who cares.
Then, surprise surprise, it continued the download. So I let it. I was worried about it getting its knickers in a twist but it was only an operating system. I have plenty of them.
This is a decidedly unMicrosftial process.
Right to the end I had an internet connection. Just before it finished doing whatever it does it asked me top close all open applications. I forgot about the internet connection.
Anyway here I am with Natty Narwhal. or whatever it is.
I wonder if my sound works.
