So finally the computer issues are over! A working computer - YAY!
I had to rebuild the beast from scratch, so that's what took time...parts can get expensive. The old one was decent - but trying to figure out what was wrong with it was giving me a migraine. Only a few original parts remain - the graphics card, the monitor, the DVD drive (one of them) and the data hard drive. All of the BSODs killed the boot manager on the old hard drive, so I had to put in a new one. I can still access most of what was on it, it just won't boot into Windows. Everything else - motherboard, RAM, processor, power supply, even the case - is new (okay, well, the case isn't 'new' - I've had it a while, just never got around to swapping it out).
Luckily everything I was writing was on a separate flash drive - which I immediately disconnected as soon as I started having problems, so everything was safe and protected.
I just need to read through Chapter 23 once to make sure I remember everything (believe it or not, I was planning on uploading that chapter when the computer crashed -- so it should be good to go) and then it will be up.
After that... there may be a bit of a break as I reread through things, because I need to refresh my memory a bit. No trustworthy computer, no story. The old Mac has developed a nasty tendency of suddenly selecting large paragraphs of writing and - deleting them. So there was no way I was booting the drive up on the Mac and chancing losing a lot of writing.
So bear with me just a bit longer -- almost there!
02-09-2016 -- Okay, I am managing to update this on my iPad, so forgive me if there are too many mistakes.
I know there hasn't been an update in a while, but that's because the computer crashed. I am trying to fix it, but every time I think I've figured out what's wrong with it, it fools me and blue screens again (and never the same * screen)!
I am finally having someone else look at it so fingers crossed...
