Computer Issues

Do you remember the original “The Fly” movie?  At the end, the human/fly hybrid is caught in a web and cries out “Help Me, help me” as the spider descends upon it.  That is me in my computer quagmire, trying to determine how to make the machine work before the machine fakes me out and prints out “Sucker”!

I was given a laptop  that had been used before but the files had been cleared out. It is supposed to replace my old laptop which can do no more than freeze up.  I’m hoping to get it running long enough to download all the files still needing to be put on a memory stick.

My brain hurts with all this.  The new computer still needs to be set up.  I have little idea what I am doing.  I’m working too many hours to have the time to devote to this project.  And I am an accident waiting to happen. And I need time to work on my book.

So please be patient dear readers while I get straightened out.  I’ll be back again.  Now, let’s hope I can print this out.

Computer Woes

My computer has become my Velveteen Rabbit, careworn and real.  It is tediously slow, the lines skip up to other places at times, it is shabby and tired.  Really, it needs to be put out in the pasture, to communicate with all the other poor computer souls who have seen better days.

Still, I struggle with it, remember better days when speed was fast and letters fell in the right places.  When it didn’t freeze on me or delete whole passages.  This is mostly meant to say I will be working on the computer when it lets me.  Now I need to think of something worth writing about.
