What an annoying day. I have loads of things to complete before stopping in two weeks time for a summer holiday. I woke with a headache, then spent the morning feeling urky, probably from the paracetamol pills and the Internet has been behaving strangely all day. My email worked first thing and then suddenly stopped, along with the web and my RSS feeds. [All this on my Powerbook.]
I did lots of troubleshooting, diagnosing, restarting, routine maintenance, restarting Airport and the cable modem. Then I thought to try the Mac mini which seemed to have no problems at all accessing the web. Stranger and stranger.
It was all too much for me so I ‘threw a sickie’ as we say here in New Zealand. The joy of being self-employed is to take sick days as needed. The downside is that no-one pays me and no-one else does the work.
Finally this afternoon I went for a walk. As I loaded some photos into my Powerbook it responded with a Kernel Panic. That might have been a good thing as my email’s pretty much working again and the web seems to be OK. NetNewsWire has even managed to grab the 300 feeds I subscribe to.
