I really hate it when things do not work right. A friend once said, "Without the right tools, it is just work." With the right tools, work becomes fun. When you have the right tools, things should go smoothly, but right now, nothing is working right. It is enough to make a preacher cuss.
Although I was able to post a test yesterday, I am still not able to upload pictures. Posting the test seems to have been a lucky fluke. Sometimes I am able to post and sometimes not. Sometimes I can comment on someone’s blog; sometimes not. What is up with that? Jesse and I cannot check our hotmail or My Space accounts. We get a "page cannot be displayed" message. This morning, I used my old computer with my old dial-up to post my Painting of the Week. I checked email accounts – it all took a while, but it worked. I had to use the scanner instead of my camera to post my painting because the camera’s battery is down. I cannot find the right connections to recharge the battery. I used my memory stick to move things from one computer to another. And yes, I managed to make things work, but what a pain. When I have a brand new computer with high speed satellite internet, why do I have to resort to such methods? Maybe if I was just a little more computer savvy I could make things work, but right now, I think I could throw that dish pretty far.
It also seems that my family is in a contest of wills. Not only are we all waiting on the other to figure out the computer problems, we are waiting to see who can let the trash pile the highest before having to take it out. Toby and Jes have gone to work, and I doubt I can stack the trash any higher. Sigh, I guess I lose again.
