Please excuse the interruption to this music blog.
It has become necessary to reboot the system titled "United States of America".
The problem has been present at length and has become chronic. It appears to date back to the instillation of defective software eight years ago. That this software was likely invalid was known at the time, but it was installed anyway, and the result has been a system rendered almost unusable, due to erratic behavior, unpredictable actions, and on several occasions, illegal operations.
An uninstall, attempted four years ago, failed, but it is hoped that today's reboot will be successful, and that the system has not already been permanently corrupted.
And now, back to our program.
