Okay, so about a month ago I said I'd be back online in about a week. Obviously, I was wrong about that. And after blowing seventy bucks with Best Buy's Geek Squad to learn that nothing is wrong with my computer, which took three weeks instead of the one week they promised, I'm feeling a bit frustrated. The good news is that Windows is now booting up, whatever the reason, so the next step is a a Windows reinstall. I'm trying to do that in the bits of free time I have here and there.

Does anybody know how to permanently remove a hard drive partition such that I'm able to use my entire hard drive?

Does anybody know how to keep Firefox from hanging, which is what's preventing me from posting from my laptop? I use Norton virus protection, if that's any help.

Also, mark your calendars. In the no-blogging downtime I've had lately, I've crafted an hour-long acoustic set with a couple of one-man theater performance pieces thrown in for fun. And I've got a gig:

Wednesday, October 14th, from 9 pm to 10 pm, I'm the guy performing at the Neutral Ground coffee house, 5110 Danneel, in Uptown New Orleans.

Yeah, that's right. I'm a musician now. Really, I'm approaching it as theater, but it's definitely in a music venue. I'll be playing old songs of mine with which some of you may be familiar. Hey Matt, remember "Love God" from back in high school? Apparently, people still like it. More on this later.

Anyway, the bad tech hiatus will be over soon. Hopefully.
