The Battle Continues

So, the last two weeks have been one techie battle after another one. I thought my computer was infected with that stupid conflicker thing, but I'm not so sure anymore. Every scanner I've used to remove it has come up clean, safe or normal modes. I've tried Ad-Aware, Malwarebytes, Symantec, McAfee Stinger, Avast, Microsoft OneCare. Always the same results, but my defrag (Windows and AusLogics) still doesn't work. InCd is acting up as well. It has come to the option of last resort. My step-dad says he's going to exchange my computer for his which means I probably won't see mine for a while. Thank God I have everything backed up on disks.

I didn't really get much done writing wise. However, I did submit "Sealed With Anguish" to Fear and Trembling Mag. It's a piece I wrote for Long Ridge and my instructor didn't get it all. It's suppose to be satirical, but I think because it was set in a "monster reality" he thought it was suppose to be scary. I don't know. After all this mess, here's hoping for some good news.
