MISC: The Girl Who Saved the World 50 and 51

My computer was taken down by the Windows 10 Update download virus.  The 
RAID drive was crashed, so I must reload all my software.I have a very 
recent draft of The Girl Who Saved the World in printed form, and am 
currently uploading Dragon speech to text converted, but things are 
lost.  It seems that the Windows 10 upgrade on occasion crashes -- in my 
case it refused to stop reloading and dying -- which meant I had no 
machine for two weeks.

Comments were much appreciated. I am very busy raising my system from 
the dead.
