Another Lost Day Here

Last night, I did some cleaning up of the PC.

I do the Links post in a WordPad file.

I wound up unknowingly deleting that WordPad file last night. And the sectors have since been overwritten, so there’s no chance of an UnDelete.

There were a lot of good Links there. Ones I cannot reconstruct now.

So, it looks like there won’t be much a Links post here today, if at all.

I might chuck it all today and go look at bad comic books instead and rage at floating profiles.
