As we speak my cat is exploring in the mesh of cables accompanying my old scanner, printer and computer that is in the back of my office…she is with the program.
Where was I? Oh yea, I do NOT want to hear you brag about your incompetence when it comes to technology! What is the point in having pride about not knowing something, not being able to handle something? Be quiet, do some study and figure it out.
I would write more but I have to go to the Apple store today to get my computer diagnosed because I only figured out yesterday that I can do that. I thought it would cost a bundle, but it’s free. Of course the new part (likely a graphics card) will cost a bundle but that’s the way that is.
I write this fragmented tirade because I spent the better part of yesterday being rolled over by not one steamroller, but 4 steamrollers, all with different answers. I wrote stuff down, judged who I thought actually knew what the hell they were talking about (1.5 out of the first 3) then was persistent as a woodpecker with the fourth until I finally got something figured out.
Technology isn’t easy, but the consequence of not dealing with it is that you become OLD! You may not feel old, but before you know it you will be one of those people who say ‘These kids today….back when I was a kid we chopped wood for the fire, slew the bears in the woods’…yada yada yada.
Don’t be that person, ok?
