This is me.
(not really me but you know what I mean)
I brought myself a Christmas present over the holidays - a brand new lap top just for me. Not for anyone else, no one else's sticky fingers are going to go near it.
I had fabulous visions of it being my blog laptop. Currently I have a home email, a work email, a blog email - and it makes life hard. I wanted to streamline my life. I thought I'd be so clever and confine all my blog stuff to the one laptop, it would all work so seamlessly and I'd be a computer genius.
Well, that's all fine in theory but now Google (ohhhh I loathe Google with its tentacles that stretch into everything - picasa anyone?) has decided that the password I have used for my firstname.lastname@example.org account is no longer valid. I've not changed it, I've done nothing wrong except to try and set up my new laptop to receive my emails there. But it's spat the dummy at me and I swear, if it didn't cost me money, I'd be chucking that new laptop into the swimming pool.
So - now I can't sign in with my email to the new laptop or the old laptop. I can't log into blogger on the old laptop, the old laptop has decided my flickr account login (same as the hotmail.com login) won't work - and I'm ready to just pull the plug on the whole stoopid thing.
And don't get me started on Windows 8. I couldn't even get past the first screen. Where's the start button? Where's the control panel? Why do these companies change things simply for change's sake?
So, if you see a lone laptop floating down the river nearby, or find a crazy woman who's got no hair left - you were warned!
I'm just going to go quilting now. At least my lovely Pfaff doesn't let me down.
p/s I've worked out how to navigate Windows 8 (mostly) now - all of it just taking up valuable quilting time.
