No enthusiasm

What an ugly ordeal. I dutifully downloaded and applied Microsoft's newest "Critical Updates", aka patches, to my XP Pro machine. After that, the system began to reboot spontaneously about every five minutes. No blue screen of death, no warning, not even an undecipherable error message. I have been troubleshooting this mess ever since. Problem: the new 'patches' would not work with my video card. I had to get "unsigned" video drivers from the motherboard maker in Taiwan to make the canuck video card work with a hyper-threaded Intel processor running XP. Right now, my desire to play computer is at a very low ebb. If Jesus was to make his second coming today, I wouldn't lift a keyboard to blog the event. Call me disgusted.
