Rebooting.. eventually...

I've had our computers up and running for a week now, more out of laziness than anything else. It's not like the computers mind. They're doing fine. They'll probably be fine if I left them up and running all month. My web browser, however, is marginally slower than it usually is. Not much slower, but just slightly. That's because it's been up and running all week too, and for not unrelated reasons. When I first returned from holiday, I wanted to read all the comments and posts I'd missed while I was gone, so I browsed through them, opened up a slew of windows... and a week later I still want to read them but haven't gotten around to it. C.'s response to this? The internet won't overwhelm us with information. It makes it easy for us to overwhelm ourselves with the amount of information we're trying to track.

Speaking of information, the highlight of my evening thus far was this little article on changes at Hogwarts, wandered across via this blog. It was certainly more exciting than all the house cleaning I've done in preparation for the landlady's quick social visit. She's not coming to inspect anything, just to give us a belated Christmas present. But guests of any sort trigger my need for a presentable apartment.
