Also I'm having weird problems with my net connection. After 3 days of not being able to connect to any bittorrent sites despite the sites being up, I downloaded a different client which fixed the problem. But now I can't connect to livejournal through Semagic. Richard thinks the last official Windows Update included some sort of anti-spoofing "fix" (to prevent people entering their e.g. PayPal account details on a non-PayPal site) which has broken some of my clients. All I know is it's pissing me off. Yes, the world will not end if I can't connect to bittorrent or post in my livejournal, but it annoys me!
I've had some thoughts about why the whole hospital thing upset me so much, but a) I'm feeling too crappy to try to articulate them now, and b) having to post through the update.bml page instead of Semagic is too irritating for long posts. (I still remember the really long post I wrote about going to the site of the World Trade Center and the site of the Stonewall riots, and how they affected me, and it being eaten by the bloody computer in the basement of the hostel I was staying at! I don't trust the web "client", Autosaved draft at 8:08:46 PM or not!).
