The Luck Continues
So I went away for the weekend.

Was driving up to the ferry terminal, and the S.O. is speeding. I warn him to slow down.

He says "I can't see any cops along here."

Me: Well, they hide at rises, and where you wouldn't expect them. (We are coming to a rise)

Him: There's no place for them to hide.

Me: You don't know this road, and they always hide.

Him: Shut up.

Me: ****

*****

Me: (glances to left) Crap, that was a Washington State Patrol (WaSP) coming the other way!

Him: No problem, they can't radar you if they are moving.

Me: Yeah they can (insert bickering here)

Him: Christ! He's flipping a U-turn! (much fretting) (lights flashing behind us)

So we get pulled over. Stuck there for about 20 minutes. Get a ticket for 70+ in a 55.

And...

We miss our ferry. Have to wait in a line of cars for 5 1/2 hours in a parking lot to get on the next one.

Get to San Juan Island, have a good time.

Go to get in line for the ferry 1 1/2 hours early (for the 11:10 ferry) - and find out that we are the last on standby for the 4:40 ferry - and don't get on that one. Have to catch the 6:50 pm ferry home. And nearly don't get on that one, as the stupid ferry workers put us in the wrong lane, and they thought we were trying to jump ahead of the 100 people that came after us.

However, it was much more fun waiting 7 hours in Friday Harbor (food, shopping) than 5 1/2 hours in a parking lot.

So I came home, and tried to start the PC in safe mode.

No go.

It just goes straight from the HP Invent screen to the blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner.

I've been calling my computer guy (under-the-table work, only have his cell number) since Friday night, but he hasn't called me back. There is a place nearby that does this work professionally - but what will happen if they find my porno or ripped DVD's? Since they are likely copyrighted stuff, and probably illegal for me to have? Plus, I have a ton of programs from... less than legal sources, including programs to get serial numbers for commercial programs - will this get me into even more trouble?

Any thoughts?

And to top it off, I have my surgical consult today.

Joy of joys...

My experience from living with an IT guy.
They don't look at anything on your PC. They run virus scans and stuff like that. They don't look in files. (I don't know how -- I'd look at everything!!)

Thanks - that helps to reassure me a bit.

Now, if only they can save it!
