Have spent several hours this evening farting around with my usenet download client. When it works well, it is amazing. When it doesn't, like it hasn't been for the last couple of days, it is a huge pain in the rump roast.
The thing is, I am not sure what I did wrong. The error message pointed to a temporary file. The documentation hinted that it might be a file permissions error, or the fact that the hard drive was full, neither of which was the case.
I ended up re-installing the application, twice.
I think it is working now. Which is nice, because my brain is fried.
Computers? They're supposed to make our lives easier, right?
See you tomorrow.
