Damned Computers!

I am sitting here in Mr. Pop's lab office on Saturday afternoon typing this because my home computer threw a fit today. Support says it may be the modem or a dozen other things, so the goddess of computers only knows when I can post again.

Please hang in there with me and let's hope this mess gets fixed before the week is out. Damned computers! You can't live with them and you can't live without them.

See ya when all computers things return to normal.

The goddess of computers is very fickle. I know. What on earth did we do before computers?

Oh you are so right "You can't live with them and you can't live without them."

Just as josie, I'm wondering what on earth did we do before computers as well!

I hate it when my computer goes on vacation. I tried hitting it, then i offered it a drink.

It called Social Services on me.

Computers? Problems? What ever are you talking about ;) Mine is just a really big paper weight some days.

I was thinking of getting one of those simple little lap-tops for kids. Those things are indestructible and really easy to use.

POP, what will I do without my daily does of Martini!?
I hate to brag but when mine goes on the fritz I go crazily out to the hubby ans say that @#$%^!@ thing is on the fritz DO SOMETHING. and he obliges- although a nurse by profession he is quite the techy, even took a 5 year class in repair, just for fun! Yes there are those out there.
first thing he says, are you sure all the plugs are in proper place, ya know we have a cat now and just maybe he messed with the wires unintentionally of course, next he says, turn off everything, give it a few mins to reset itself and then turn back on-have to unplug everything first!
hope yours is something minor and we can shrtly get out daily dose of Martini!

I bring burnt offerings to the goddess of all computers... In the remains my little bonfire of the vanities for her I have all manner of right wing propaganda and spew.

To you goddess of computers - give the gift of continued blogging to Pop!

Did that work? Is the computer fixed???

I may be Catholic, but my spiritual path is wide and very deep. The goddess of computers must never feel maligned!

Not sure what is worse. Having computer problems or having to deal with people who fix computer problems.

Whatever shall I do without my Morning Martini?

Hey, Pop, Roger's computer started acting up this morning. It's like a wicked demon has taken over the hard-drive, wiped out all of his bookmarks and customization and resorted to the browser defaults. Very weird. Hope your computer problems are less complicated than this. Good luck.
