Sorry about the blog silence, mes potes. I have finally been zapped by a virus or similar nasty, so this is being written on my old steam-powered laptop.
If anyone knows how to remove a warning notice that reads "Failed to set hook!", I would be grateful. This is the outward manifestation of the nasty thing that prevents me from firing up any programs.
If anyone knows where I can download a file called usbccgp.sys, I would be equally grateful - if I had this file, I could use a mouse with my old laptop instead of the touchpad.
Watch this space, though - "you can't keep a good man down". It says here on this piece of paper.
