Stupid online class platform...

Yesterday, I logged into the online class platform to get some grading done for a friend of mine who's overloaded with their online classes plus a bad set of eyes that looking at a computer screen for too long actively hurts. 

And the stupid fucking platform started giving me error messages.  Then wouldn't let me into the grade book. 

No biggie--I uninstalled and reinstalled Java.  Then got back into the platform.  It still wouldn't work, and a couple of messages popped up that the version I'd gotten wasn't the most recent, so I did it again.  And again, when the platform still didn't work, even when everything else did. 

By the time the platform started working again, it was 11:00 p.m., and I was too worked up to be able to go to sleep. 

This morning, the thing was working perfectly...after everything had gotten done, and after I'd gotten to sleep at 1:00 a.m. and was awakened at ten till seven by the kids getting up and playing. 

Needless to say, I've gotten jack and shit done today, other than a big pot of comfort food (hamburger stew with lots of potatoes, and biscuits) made, and a couple of repairs supervised (new outdoor faucet put in, and belt put back on the washing machine's pump) and paid for. 

Hopefully, it can be an early night tonight.
