darkness

(no subject)

Argh! XP refused to stay set on the "classic theme," every time i restarted the computer it would be back to that ugly green and blue look and the task bar would have shrunk from two lines down to one.

After doing some googling i found some people who had problems installing any themes at all, which sounded like a similar problem, and they fixed it by going to Start->settings->control panel->Administrative Tools->Computer Management->Servies and Applications->Services->Themes and changing it from disabled to manual. I went to the same place and found mine was set on automatic, so i changed it to manual and rebooted, and my theme stayed the way it was supposed to! Woot!

Unfortunatly i was actually familiar with that particular bit of the admin tools (though not it's relation to themes) because if you look right under services you see... WMI Control!!! Ack! It won't leave me alone!

Okay, i'm going to go play Civ4 now and hide from WMI.

I spent so much time standing and pacing about yesterday while waiting for my computer that my leg decided to cramp up last night =P Guess it's a good thing i didn't go clubbing, but i probably would have gotten more sleep that way. I stayed up till about 6:30 conquering the Aztecs :)

Not actually feeling too tired today though because i got woken up by morna calling sometime around noon. It always helps me feel more awake if i get woken up by a person for some reason.

But now i'm stuck at work for the next several hours. Blah =P
