My whole system crashed a few days ago. Spent two days trying to save it (purchased the computer on ebay so who knows about previous owner?).
The good thing though is I erased the hard drive and did a fresh installation of jaguar (I had panther before).
My poems were on a keychain so I didn't lose them.
I like Jaguar and Safari is working in blogger.
Interersting names: safari, panther, jaguar (tiger coming soon), blogger.
Sometimes a full system crash is a good thing ( as long as you back up the good shit).
I am enjoying Mark Ducharme's _Infinity Subsections_ and Trevor Joyce's _With the First Dream of Fire They Hunt the Cold_.
One more longish poem for the manuscript and I am done (no more mass fiddling only small tinkering).
At the Lucipo meeting on Saturday we talked about a lot of very interesting things. Such as: can the work of the critic interphere with the work of the poet (not necessarily assuming the two are seperate people)?
Also on the subject of book making (as discussed in Silliman's post today): first order, second order. best word best order, best order any order? Uniform or jeans and a t-shirt or twelve different outfits tri-sexual etc.?
