Minding his own business…
…expect a “boop”.
He moved out of range. Boops are nice, but only when you expect and want them!
I’ve had a new printer for about a month now. This has been the year of new technology replacing old technology that pooped out. I’ve put off setting it up. It seems each time I have to set up a new printer, there are ridiculous complications! I need the dang thing, though, so I guess I’d best better just suck it up and see what this one takes to be usable. My fingers are crossed.
This is in response to easyweimaraner’s observation:
Andy knows that cats were worshiped in olden times. I’m sure he wants the same treatment.
LOL! Exactly…and NOW!
Andy does a perfect Sphinx! Yes, replacing technology can take a lot of time and effort, and often there is one critical feature or another that doesn’t work right and needs attention.
I had to unpack and set it up last night to print a form I need to complete and take with me to renew my driver’s license. Two and three-quarters hours later, I survived set up. It was an ordeal. After most of the time passed, the wee screen flashed that there was a weak Wi-Fi signal, that I should try another location. That done, the connection happened with no drama. (Well, none from the printer, but I reacted with some.)
I like the last two photos, purrrfect! 👍🏻😂 I despise working with printers too, Doug, my printer is set up to run wireless so that I can print from the Mac, iPad or iPhone.
I had to set it up last night because I needed to print a form I need to take with me when I get my driver’s license renewed. It was the ordeal I expected, but it now is working through a Wi-Fi connection. The password to establish the link is 17 letters and numbers long, and I had to re-enter that SOB on that teeny tiny screen, using arrows to move the cursor at least 17 times before the link worked.
You have had the same experience as I did! It’s so stupid but once it is set up, cross your fingers it continues to work!
Mr Andy looks more like his adorable self as his hair is growing back.
I’ve gotten used to the concept that every new device brings with it a new set of challenges, but I have been wondering why I’ve never had such issues with kitchen appliances. Even the most sophisticated, with lots of programmable features, work like magic for me.
Yes, Andy looks better the longer his hair grows. As for kitchen appliances, I haven’t had issues with programmable features, but I get impatient with complexity where a simpler solution would do the same job.
I tend to think that for techies who develop those machines they ARE simple solutions. They see the world of electronics from a totally different perspective.
Exactly! I’m a firm believer in plug and play being the level of complication that should be the standard for technology put on the market.
I am not technically savvy to explain the reason for all these electronic intricacies, but I suspect it exists, even if we do not feel comfortable with results.
Exactly my delayed approach to new equipment
I wish I weren’t this way. I have been exposed to technology through my work years in industry, and I never balked at learning new things. I think now that I am retired, my attitude is “I don’t get paid to figure this %^#@$ thing out!”
love the first photo… like a sphinx ;O)
I noticed this similarity some time back and posted the two photos above of the sphynx and Andy in the same pose.
Oops, unexpected boop activity … Good luck with the printer!
I’m trying to convince myself today is the day I’ll give it a try.
