They are giving me nothing but grief at the moment. I have now had three tries at upgrading to Windows 10 to my desktop computer with no success and I even bought an external drive to preserve its integrity in case things go wrong; but I noticed today that Microsoft now very visibly sets a restore point at the beginning of the download. But Techie is going to come and sort things out for me soon and then I can get on with other things.
Some of the problems may lie with my Internet Provider. A couple of weeks ago it was bouncing back any emails which I sent to Hotmail and since I was given a recorded message when I phoned them I assume that it was happening to more than just me.
And now I am trying to edit something on my web page. It may be simply that it is so long since I edited anything that I have forgotten how but when I first tried to get to my FTP page I was told that it wasn't available. I can now get into it and I can edit the page but it will not save so I will probably have to phone up and ask for help. My internet provider has recently been bought out by one of its rivals (I can't complain about that because I made a killing on the stock market with the takeover) but there have been glitches since then and I am wondering if there are problems with integrating the two companies.
Summer has sort of arrived and we have had a couple of hot days but we are back to cold again with a howling sea breeze which is whistling through the air conditioning towers and is very noisy. Never buy a top floor apartment if you want to lead a quiet life.
Parsifal has been indulging in quite a lot of attention seeking behaviour which was really getting my attention so I have started to ignore him when he jumps onto my bedroom table and rattles my jewelry and after a couple of tries with "look what I am doing now" noises he has stopped doing it and become a very cuddly lap-cat which is a win/win situation for both of us. I wish that he could go hunting and catch me some rats but that is out of the question. I think that he is bored ...
