Bad Sluggo! Bad!

Sluggo misbehaved quite badly this evening. There are occasions when he freezes up, cursor and all (or the cursor vanishes altogether, which is most disconcerting) and there are other occasions when I click on a link and the little green monitor icons in the task bar (or is it the status bar -- I can never remember -- and, in any case, I don't think electronics ought to be hanging around in bars, but that's the way Microsoft set it up) light up and by hovering the cursor over them I can see the information passing in and out of Sluggo's brain rapidly, but the page doesn't open. In the latter case, I usually just hit the escape key and start over.

But tonight, both of these events occurred at once. Sluggo froze, cursor and all, and the monitor icons stayed lit, and Sluggo wouldn't respond to any keyboard commands, so I had to shut him down the bad way or he would have swallowed the entire Internet and (probably) chucked it back up filled with his evil. So that's why there is no real entry tonight, but only these very long Byzantine sentences about the wickedness of computers. Sorry. Now I am going to go punish Sluggo by downloading a bunch of porn pictures of cute puppies and kittens.
