1. I lose my computer for over a week thanks to a virus
2. PC is fixed, but IT have started playing around with internet blocking services and have blocked all my sites including LJ
3. I get my sites back by asking nicely .... and .... and the bloody work ISP goes down!
Point me at an altar, I have to make a suitable sacrifice to appease the wrath of whatever deity I upset. I'm sure I can find a blushing virgin to offer up in supplication if I try hard enough.
