at me. I know, you think I'm joking, but I'm not. It was talking to me in a very loud, urgent voice (yelling, right), saying something about system boot error, over and over and over and over. It was enough to make me turn it off quickly. I unplugged (as I have been taught) and plugged back in after a long 30 seconds (patience is a over-rated virtue) and it yelled at me again. So, I'm adaptable (just not patient) I conceded that my computer had died. I uphooked the one in my den and moved it to my office. This is good. This computer is much better so everything is wonderful.......for one day. Then my internet quick working. So I called the specified number and after much 'step-following' they determined that I needed a new modem. Easy, right? But after late work nights and almost a week without internet (did y'all miss me?) I wait outside the cable office for them to open. They are out of modems.......Not really even sure what to say here. They send out a technician the next day, who was very knowledgeable and nice, and who determined it was not my modem, but the cable......but he fixed it and thus....a new blog. But maybe you've gotten a little bored with this dissertation because there are no pictures........
Can't upload them to the blog.
Remember what I said about me and no patience? It seems to affect me the worst when dealing with computers and weed eaters. So close your eyes and picture a frustrated woman in front of a computer (let's pretend that my hair looks way better than hers). And there's your picture to accompany this blog. It's only fair that you do some of the work here. So, I guess I'll work on it some more later, maybe sprinkle it with some holy water (do you know a Catholic), or call my brilliant, techno-nephew (even though after we try the unplug thing, he quickly get waaaaaay out of my depth). Hope your cyber life is running more smoothly than mine........Maybe I'll just go play spider solitaire.
