Day 10 - stress!

In a quest for better WiFi reception I installed a new wireless card driver and, to my absolute horror, lost all WiFi capabilities. Windows just kept telling me that there were no networks available, even when I went down to the courtyard, my WiFi heaven. I tried deleting the card and reinstalling it again, and again, and again… Nothing worked. Trying to stay calm and telling myself that it was just a driver issue, I ran to the ITU – just to find it closed. Oh no… so here I am, in the middle of a hostile, wireless-less, foreign, French-speaking country, all alone, with no Internet and nowhere to go… I was almost at the point of crying. I wouldn’t tell you if I really cried.

After two hours of suffering I discovered that the wonderful people of Toshiba saved backups of the drivers in Program Files. I am online again.

I do not need this kind of stress.
