I just lost a USB port! I took my camera cable out and plugged my tablet cable in to that same port, too quickly perhaps? And it told me the port was taking too much power and would be deactivated! Agh! I am hoping it will be back after I restart, but if not, does any one out there now about this sort of thing? I have never seen the like before- and I need that port. humph. Nevermind! The restart fixed it- yippee!
P.S. The pussycats are back! My mum had them for their holidays in the country while we packed, moved and got settled. At first, they slunk about looking quite worried but they are right at home now, shedding and sleeping like they have lived here all their lives. A house is not a home without them.
