Community Manager Gives up on Computers!

That’s it, in one week my Windows XP machines was hit with a virus and is no longer usable; my Linux Netbook tried to download too many updates and is now out of room and requires a complete new installation, and of course, my Mac is no longer backing up to the Time Capsule. I have had enough. Can someone please tell me which OS to use that will actually work – perhaps I should try NetBSD?

Anyway, I am in the process of turning on the new online registration system for speakers interested in presenting at Xen Summit Asia China in November. I had planned to bring that system live today but my computer problems have backed me up. I plan to launch that system on Monday.

Also, I have a 18 minute interview with Jeremy Fitzhardinge ready for upload and plan to work on that for publication on Monday as well.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and your computers are working correctly!

    Don’t give up (completely) until less sophisticated devices such as calculators begin exhibiting undefined behavior when you touch them. Should that happen, its time to find a new career.

    I once had a similar day, a coffee spill took out my keyboard, while moving the desk around to get it unplugged, my monitor came crashing down and smashed an external hard drive. The drive survived, but the CRT monitor was toast. A few hours later when leaving to go home, I picked up my laptop bag not realizing that I forgot to zip it closed, which caused my thinkpad to meet an untimely demise against a concrete floor (a corner of the LCD cracked badly).

    At least your recent experience with bad technology mojo did not result in physical damage :)
