Computer surgery completed.

The system drive (an Intel 530 SSD, 1 month past its warranty) was giving "S.M.A.R.T. status bad" warnings, so now it's replaced by a Samsung EVO 860. As a bonus, it seems that Windows Update now works for me again, too - it had stopped working some while ago (35 upgrades, to the tune of 737 MB...).

So we've had snow, and a lot of it - particularly yesterday. Most of it fell over a period of around 10-12 hours yesterday; it was about 60 cm (two feet), but there was force 4-6 (and sometimes more) winds at the same time, so some people have been blocked in by drifts reportedly reaching 3 meters (ten feet).

Several roads are still today closed due to avalanches, other roads do not get cleared because the snowplows and other equipment are locked in by avalanches. Sidewalk cleaning also has been missing, since all equipment has had to focus on keeping the roads open. School buses, as well as many other bus services, were cancelled today, so most schools here stayed closed today.

I cannot remember the last time snow closed down schools around here, although in the comments sections in the local newspapers some people speak of it happening on some very few occasions in the 60s and 80s.

The official Twitter account of the operations central of Oslo Police occasionally puts out some real gems - like this afternoon:
"A man rang us after his wife and their dog have been brought in by police. He'd really like to have the dog back, but we were very welcome to keep the wife."

Does anone know how one can actually get in touch with customer service at amazon.com? Because when I click the "Contact Us" link, I get to a page which says "Contact Us", but has no way of actually contacting them.
