Tuesdaily computer update

I've spent the morning uninstalling crapware from my computer and downloading the 100billion windows updates and decent antivirus software (Avast) and reinstalling the things I need to work. It will probably be a week before the shiny new laptop gets here, and I can't be out of commission that long.

I've been toying with the idea of running a fundraiser to defray this sudden expense, but the truth is, I saw this coming a long way off, and I try to keep enough of a buffer that such hiccups are not business-devastating. This effectively kills said buffer, and there's not much of a safety net left, but being prepared in business means budgeting for regular expenses like this. I've been squirreling away income bits a little at a time towards this, so I wouldn't have to settle for something cheap when this moment came.

I have GOT to figure out how to turn off iPad's autocorrect. I would rather look illiterate than have to re-type perfectly good words 7 times to stop it from turning Nvidia into McLeod. (Seriously!)
