You might have noticed a lack of evening and night blogging. Well, unless you’re in Austria or Japan, guess it might seem different there.
Anyway, it’s all a part of how crazily complicated our technical lives are getting. I had to get a new home computer recently, which came with 2 free months of Norton Security. I waited until the last moment to renew, but forgot I already had a Norton account using my work email address. So I did it through that.
Next problem: can’t access my work account from home without my physical “SecurID” token, plus the necessary passwords and incantations and the secret footshake, which throws off the “secret handshake” crowd. (And the non-flexible, of course.)
So naturally I keep forgetting to bring the token home.
Thus, currently my computer has no immune system. And it’s terrifying. I’m not even turning it on until I can go straight to my work account and Norton.
(But maybe “Luddite” isn’t the right word for someone who stops using a computer in favor of playing his PS3 on a 65-inch television. “Luckite” is probably better. This is the rare moment when I’m grateful for middle-class wealth exceeding the dreams of ancient kings and emperors.)
If I manage to keep screwing up the update, I guess I could still blog from home. But I’d better stay on the well-beaten digital paths, right? You guys will have to find your own tentacle pron for a few days.
