I don’t know how many people realized it, but my blog has been coming to you from my phone for at least 4 months. Back in March I bought a new computer, that month my computer started going pretty screwy, it wouldn’t let me download photos or even put links into my blog post. I rely on my computer to work at home for both of my jobs and while I’d like to blame it for my current writer’s block, I’m not so sure I can go that far.
Well after going to the computer store at least 4 times in the last 6 months, I finally decided I’d had enough. Once again I spoke to Phil, the manager, and Greg, the head of Tech Support, both of whom I didn’t know personally 6 months ago, and informed them I would expect a new computer by the afternoon. Needless to say I received the phone call mid-morning to say they hadn’t found any problems with the computer. Once again they suggested that perhaps I needed a stronger router (the one I currently have can pick up ham radio in most of the Eastern Bloc countries), or perhaps my problem lies with user error. I was having none of it. I marched myself into Tech Support and proceeded to show them what was wrong with this computer. By the end of my demonstration, I was still laughing and amazingly calm, but Greg had already called for the store manager and if possible a Catholic priest to perform an exorcism.
Phil, the manager, and I had had some disagreements in the past about this particular computer, but I must give him full credit in saying that yesterday he came through. Yeah you may say it took 6 months, but it can’t be easy with as much of the public that comes in complaining about technology, to weed out the ones that might be legit.
This evening I should have a new computer in my hands. A new era of blogging begins this week. While it’s not completely up and running, I did start a new blog just for fun called Too Dark To Read . I would love it if you go check it out and even more if you would send me a photo of your favorite animal companion for our Friends Page.
See you Thursday!
