Something weird is going on with ye computer. It's affecting my email, which I cannot access. My adobe plugin has crashed so I cannot do videos at YouTube. I think I must have accidentally downloaded something called Security Tool and it is telling me that all of these things are trying to get my credit card info, that I have 26 worms or some such thing. I think this Security Tool is a scam and I cannot figure out how to rid my computer of it. I can still come here, I can still access Facebook, so I can still communicate with y'all, but I have no idea when I'll be able to have my email running again. That's not a real bummer cos I don't need email except for sending my new book to S. T. Joshi, my editor at Hippocampus Press. So I may just do without email for a few months unless some buddy who understands computer hoodoo can come figure this thing out. Nor can I remember where I put my main computer disc with which I cured my laptop of one major virus that completely killed my laptop. I thought I had it down here, but I've just rearranged my books and may have moved the milk-crate "shelf" where I placed the disc.
The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival is almost here! Well, two months away, I guess, but it feels real close. How I look forward to it! I feel an intense need to surround myself with Lovecraftians and discuss HPL, the Mythos, writing weird fiction, &c. Oh, my friends, I need it bad...
