Curse this modern technology.

Having some serious computer-type issues today. 

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, but I don't expect to be able to answer comments or post the 'Picks of the week' list before tomorrow, sorry



ETA:  I'm baaaaaack (sort of). 

I'll post the links list shortly, but I've still got a lot of computer-type tweaking (not to mention a backlog of general, non-computerly stuff) to get done today, so I won't be around much tonight.  I promise to catch up with everyone tomorrow.

Are you sure you're calm right now, given the computer issues?

Lol, I'm not saying I didn't have to make an effort during the three and a half hours I spent trying to restore the various bits and pieces my daughter deleted, but I remained calm :)

Thanks :)

I have another computer in my basement office, but I had to get the laptop sorted for my daughter, who loves to watch Disney clips on YouTube (even though she has the DVDs).

She gets very stressed when things don't work and doesn't understand the meaning of words like 'broken' - or, sadly, 'Don't delete files; start installing things and quite out halfway through; download viruses etc ;)

Well, shucks - and good luck. I ready your post at Nathan's site and loved it. Great job! I've been fighting my *but* for decades. I get over it, it comes back, I get over it, it comes back. Kind of like yo-yo dieting. :-)

Thank you :)

It seems that, like crosses, we all have our 'buts' to bear :(

Me too! Or at least, scanner/printer problems. Stupid thing.

I love computers, except when they don't work.

Ugh! Sorry to hear it. Hope you're up and running soon, without hassle!

Thank you. I can't pretend there was no hassle, but everything's up and running now :)

You have my condolences. As for daughters and computer files, and the like, do they ever really grow out of that stage? Mine is twenty-five, and she is still, pretty much, the same way.

Probably not, but it would be great if they did :)

True, true. At least, too, she does not throw the computer out the window when frequently frustrated with it,
