I had a dream

Hello! I'm breaking a seven month silence to tell you about a dream I had last night. I want to get it down now before I forget about it and its too long for a Facebook status, so here I am.

To understand the dream you have to get some real world context. Two points:

1. We have been having computer problems. Our main household desktop got a virus on it a few weeks ago. I got it cleared off as far as I can tell, but it's still being hit with those fake antivirus ads and my antivirus won't update and Windows Update won't run either. I run antivirus and malware scans (of course, my definitions are a month out of date because I can't update them) but they don't find anything. Oh, and I'm getting these annoying fake captcha things too. Grr! Anyone have any ideas on that one?

2. I am immersed in audiobooks of The Wheel of Time during my commute. I'm currently halfway through The Great Hunt. Good stuff.

So, my dream. I was fighting with the computer, trying to get my antivirus updated. As usual I was getting the non-connect messages and everything else. Suddenly, it started updating out of nowhere! Cool!

I heard a noise outside the window and looked out the window and saw a man walking through the yard. He was tall, with red hair. I recognized him. It was Rand al'Thor! He's ta'veren! That has to be why the computer updated! I yelled for one of the kids to go ask him to stop and invite him in. I wanted to make sure he stuck around long enough for my updating to finish. I woke up. No idea if he came in or not.

For those of you who have never read The Wheel Of Time, ta'veren are people who can affect events in the world just by being there. Events tend to center on them and just being in the area would be enough to cause a computer to update despite hidden virus debris.

It was pretty cool.

What did you dream last night?
