One of these days

I won't be such a fucking idiot. Next time, I swear.

ICQ crash again. Can't open or send messages. Figure that reinstalling ICQ may work, no joy. I then figure that, like last time, rebuilding the database may solve my problems. Bear in mind that this is a distincly non-trivial thing, given the size of the database. Three hours or so later, it's done. Still nothing, the same error as before.

Only then do I realise that through judicious use of Hibernate mode has this laptop had an uptime that would make most ME machines scream in pain. I reboot and everything works.

I am such an idiot. And before you start laughing at me, go look at the graduation pictures in the last post. Then you can laugh even harder.
