Chaos and Crocodiles Never Give Up On A Miracle, Enchanted Polish Winter and a Jigsaw

Remember when I told you that I had tried upgrading to Windows 10, hated it and went back to 7 and had a bunch of conflicts and broken programs? Well it got so bad that I was having to restart my laptop several times just to get itunes to work so I could sync my iphone.

I decided I was going to try to fix it.  It was either that or give this computer to my mom and buy a new one.  I went thru all the programs, especially the troubleshooting ones.  A couple of programs had been disabled, which I enabled, then there were drivers that needed updating.  I think literally 32 of them had been wrecked.

Then I was having a major conflict with disk defrag and the task scheduler.  It kept saying you can't use this as another program is using it.  So I did what anyone else would do, I googled my question. Can you believe that google found me a dude that had written a program to fix this issue as everyone who did what I did with Windows 10 got the same corrupted files.

It took me a minute to figure out what the guy was saying.  I know my way around a computer, but I'm no expert in these things.  You had to download his zip files into a new folder and then follow his steps.  It was the last task that got me stuck. Finally I figured it out.

There are still 11 corrupted files-but the guy's website said this would happen.  There was a long list of people thanking him for creating these programs.  If any of you out there have this issue let me know and I'll send you the link I used.

All I know is my laptop is working better than it has in quite a long time.  It wakes up like it's supposed to when you open it, that hasn't happened in eons.  The fan isn't making this godawful noise and it is just running so much faster and smoother.

Stupid Windows 10.

All right.  Today's mani features a jigsaw. I remember when I was a newbie and first saw this I was awestruck.  I thought it was the most intricate difficult design ever.  I never thought I'd be able to do one myself.  Then I saw a tutorial and realized how damn easy it is to do.  It's like a trick of the eye thing.  It's just intertwining dots that make it look like a jigsaw.

I love it.

Here is the mani before the design.

Chaos and Crocodiles makes the most stunningly strong holos! She just had another sale.  Hopefully you got yours! Winter is gorgeous as well.  Such a lovely blue grey.

Here is the jigsaw.

How awesome is this?  Take a close look-you can see the jigsaw is just dots.  You tape off half the nail and polish that, then dot. I should have done the opposite here.  Should have done the darker color with the bigger dots.  That's just my preference. But damn was this cool to stare at for the days I wore it!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
