Post 1048: Computers! If I had a hammer handy I could fix mine.

I futzed around on my PC this morning and failed to get it to work. The mouse works. The keyboard doesn’t. I started the week with the f drive not working. That’s the one that reads the SD card that my digital camera stores photos and videos to.

A trip to Scottsbluff resulted in news that the f drive was unrepairable because of advances in technology [writing that, he scoffed] that made that obsolete. Never mind, though, because there is a plug-in adapter that works! I managed to post Post 1048 with some of the photos, but not the cute ones of the turtle on the road and the kitties greeting me when I came home, all in videos form!

Well, well, well! Dougy finally showed up. Guess who knocked over the wastepaper basket. This is trash day, Dougy. It's empty!

The other day, Dougy was upset because I yelled at him for knocking over the wastepaper basket. Today, it was my time to be upset.

Of course, one fix accompanies another problem: The Microsoft Movie Maker no longer works, I accidentally left the video option on my digital camera on so my Smith Lake trip ends with the road construction scene, and the alternative to screen print from the videos is thwarted because the new version of Microsoft Paint doesn’t seem to allow one to screen print and convert the image to a JPEG file one can treat as a photo.

I work at being a positive person. Computers, however, tap into the darkest regions of my soul.
