Have been across the Bass Strait in Tasmania recently, but am back now and trying to catch up on all that's been happening. The process has been hindered somewhat by Trend Micro's Titanium 2011 anti-virus software. My current subscription was running out and so I purchased the new program... and it immediately killed my PC's hard drive! More effectively than any virus could. I spent 8 hours unsuccessfully trying to boot up and even Trend Micro's technicians couldn't help. They blamed Microsoft, but Microsoft weren't interested in the slightest - and I'm not sure that I blame them because it was working fine before I installed the Trend Micro software. Anyway, I've politely suggested they might like to keep their program and refund my money, and this preamble is by way of providing a Buyer Beware!
It's not all bad though. That's a minor hiccough and there's excellent stuff happening too. What I really want to draw attention to here is the wondeful interview that Jane Turley put together on her blog The Witty Ways of a Wayward Wife. Jane interviewed me a couple of weeks back and has been kind enough to not only give this a big splash on her blog, but to also write a glowing review of The Grease Monkey's Tale for The View From Here literary zine. An interview and a review on one day. That's very generous, Mrs T. Thanks.
