First a double-glazed window pane failed in the utility room for no apparent reason other than the sunshine…
Next my business laptop caught a rootkit from somewhere and eventually the registry became corrupted.
Rather than send it back and be without the PC while it was re-imaged in the middle of nowhere, I tried XP recovery console but to no avail.
Then I remembered I had a copy of UBUNTU on my USB stick with a basic kernel. So booted UB and copied my registry backup (don’t leave home without one) to the system folder – renamed etc and rebooted.
And finally this morning I drove DD to school and the following warning light appeared on my dashboard.
BMW insist that you should finish your journey and get it to a service centre asap. So have it booked in for Saturday morning….at 8:30am.
Looks like I’ll definitely be using the train tomorrow.
