Arrrrgggghhhhh! Internet Meltdown!!

Hi guys!

Well, as y'all may or may not have noticed - I haven't been around in a while. This is just a quick update for anyone who might be wondering what the hell is going on with me!

My internet died around two weeks ago and I still haven't figured out what the problem is. To cut a very long story (involving a lot of phone calls) short, after installing a new modem, it looks like the problem may be with my laptop -- I now have internet access on my home PC but my wireless connection will not work. Furthermore, I've tried my brothers wireless connection - also won't work on my laptop, but my wireless connection will work on his laptop. Argh! So, we've figured that the problem must be the laptop? If there are any computer experts out there who can offer advice please, please do!

So, what about the blog? I have a ton of reviews typed up (all saved on my laptop!) and I'm away this weekend so I probably won't have time to transfer everything, but hopefully the blog will be up and running soon. I probably won't be around as much to comment on blogs for a while, but I hope to get everything sorted out soon -- I just wish I knew what the actual problem was. 

To the winners of the Dreamless competition a couple weeks back - I've been informed that you guys didn't get your books (I know at least one of you didn't) so I will chase that up ASAP and let you all know what's going on there.  I hope you'll all have your books very soon.

To anyone awaiting an email from me -- I will get to them soon. I have over THREE HUNDRED unanswered emails in my inbox. Disaster.

Lovely publicists -- regarding blog tours -- don't worry. Everything will run as planned even if I am not emailing y'all back as promptly as before!

That's my explanation -- sorry for deserting you guys! I've missed chatting to everyone about books! In the meantime I watched the three series box set of North and South. I also finally watched Breaking Dawn. Pregnant Bella grossed me out -- she looked so bad!! Oooh, and I read Rage Within by Jeyn Roberts. Freakin' Awesome!! :)

Missed you all! x L.

  2. Thanks, Sabrina! My PC is very old and very slow, so I don't think I'll be able to do a whole lot of blogging until I figure out what the problem is with the laptop!

  3. I hope things start working for you soon. I hate when that kind of thing happens.  Oh, and you are the second person today to rave about North and South. I must get my hands on this mini-series!

  4. Sorry about your internet! That really sucks, I wonder what was wrong with it? Yay for Rage Within! In reply to your comment on my review, I do indeed still like Daniel. It's wrong but I can't help it! :P

  5.  I got the whole series for pretty cheap on Ebay. You should check it out! I watched it on TV when I was a kid. I still really enjoyed it this time round! :)

  6.  Haha! Me too!!! I fixed the laptop problem. It needed a Winsock reboot. Don't even ask me what that is --I don't even know. I found it on some random computer forum and it worked!
