damn this computer!


ok, so i think i've already done a post on modern tech, including computers, but i don't think i've RANTED about them yet!

i HATE computers . . . i just wrote a magnificent post (trust me, it was pretty good) and then, somehow, without my touching any keys (trust me, i didn't) the post just disappeared! bye, bye and all that - what'd i do to piss of the blog gods, huh?

so now, here i am, unable to reconstruct whatever it was i first wrote, so now i'm just going thru this worthless, inane rant about it

i say, bring back pen and paper!

and, btw, i just LOVE smileys!

kittycat,

perhaps it was karma from the gods (god)! did you do something to offend or upset a real-life friend? think back. it might not be too late to win back their freindship.

Write your posts using Notepad, saving frequently, then cut and paste into the "Add a Post" window. I'm not saying this is foolproof, but it does away with internet glitches and the flakiness of this virus-ridden site. And Notepad over Word because Word has some flakey foreign characters in it. You'll have to manually replace all your " marks after you paste it, for just one example.

That said, I'll sign up for any jihad that eliminates demon computers from the world. I'll be out of a job, but it's a small sacrifice to make.

you're kidding, right? "notepad"? "cut and paste"? i'm a computer illiterate and don't see that changing anytime soon

hope you're having sweet dreams, cat
