It feels like I am living in the movie Groundhog Day. Every time I go to CNN.com to view "Now in the News," it shows anchor Virginia Cha last Wednesday, July 29th at 1:30 pm, wearing the same hot pink blazer, saying the same old news stories about terrorist groups, etc. Every time I check my favorite blogs, they are stuck on whatever entry was posted by last Wednesday, July 29th at 1:30 pm. And I KNOW the world has had updates since last Wednesday...because this weekend I used Jerry's laptop to double-check and felt illuminated to learn all that had gone on in the world since my computer got stuck in a time warp.
We have a solution for all our laptop's problems. Maybe it is a bit neanderthal-esque, but we just move anything important onto an external hard drive, then wipe the computer clean, followed by a reinstallation of all programs and such. So I'm not too worried, but haven't gotten around to doing the "computer clean up" yet, so if anybody has better ideas for fixing the problem, please let me know. I am also interested to know what causes this sort of problem, if anybody else out there has experienced it.
