My computer was apparently going nuts far below the surface.
Because when I finally allowed it to auto-fix or whatever it's called, it ran for like 14 hours.
There was a problem with a quarter of a million files.
Those files had to be modified and then an equal number of "unused files" had to be changed, deleted something.
So I'm only getting back online the next day.
I had another computer to use but I didn't feel like freezing my ass off up there or dragging the space heater up those stairs.
So I just experienced real life a bit. Scary. lol
