SOLVED: Black screen after Windows 8 logo during/after install. Frozen? Not quite.

Back in May we decided to install Windows 8 on my laptop. Long story short, my laptop stayed ‘dead’ all summer when we couldn’t find a solution for what happened to it. Fast forward to the past couple days. Miklos was upgrading four computers (three laptops, one desktop) to Windows 8. The installs seemed to have gone well. However, overnight two laptops ran into the same problem mine had. Upon booting up, the new Windows 8 logo would show for a few seconds, and immediately … Continue reading

We got lost in this part of north-eastern Hungary because a road was closed and a bridge was flooded out at the time. We really should have gotten … Continue reading

How to Have a Shitty Day

Get up at 7:44am on a Saturday morning. Go to the market and have a shitty coffee that tastes so bad you can’t even finish it.

Get made fun of by the Luigi-looking guy who pressures you to … Continue reading

I just saw an accident on the 406. Well, I saw the aftermath, and it gave me a giant headache because of my road paranoia and the fact that this happened about a minute ahead of where I was. I’ve never seen that highway come to a screeching halt; it took me completely by surprise when I had to brake hard and slow right down to 0. I won’t describe the accident scene here. I hope the person was all right. Share the post “” … Continue reading
