I’ve had a pretty busy few days since Saturday, on that day gardening, shopping, and preparing for a dog show next day, Sunday up at 4 am Sue’s by 5.45 a quick run in Forest with the five dogs and at the dog show by 8 am, judged till 4.30 and home by around 7.30 pm, in a non stop sunshine day, such a change from my last judging stint where it rained non stop. Bed by 9 pm, next day Monday, playing catch up and dancing club in the evening, Tuesday, a girl friend up and out for lunch back and watched some DVD’s of her trip to America plus some, as it rained all afternoon we didn’t get in a walk we’d planned. This morning took out dogs in pouring rain but since I got home the sun has come out.
Thought I’d have the afternoon on the computer to do some blogging and catch up, plus I have to write out my show report.
I have a desk top with XP and a lap top with Vista, During the day I use the desktop as it’s attached to the scanner and printer. When it hasn’t been used for a couple of days t plays up, and to-day it played up big time, It tales nearly two minutes to boot and then it will freeze, take ages to connect to the internet, then freeze again, asks me if I want to renew and pay for out of date anti virus, which I don’t as I’ve changed it, but I keep getting pop ups, then my current one wants to update, so I allowed it , but that meant another start up. Today it told me that my certification was wrong for Google and had to reset the time and date, which I discovered had reverted to 1st January 2001, I have to keep re-applying passwords and user names for Google, Yahoo, WP and Blogger, by this time I have now over run lunch and been on here for 1.1/2 hours and hardly done anything, FRUSTRATED ? you bet.
I’m really wondering whether to maybe get another laptop to replace this desktop or try transferring everything on the the external hard drive and ditch it [desk top] altogether, But that means a lot of work that I’m not sure I’m techie enough to cope with, also stuff I’ve put on the external HD I find isn’t so easy to locate, FRUSTRATED ? you bet.
anyone got any sane and sensible ideas for me, but while I’m waiting for the dozens of replies I’m sure to get, I’m off to replenish my grumbling tum. before I get an ulcer, Then I’ll come back and write up my dog report. HUH!
Now then I’m writing this on Live writer old version and when I tried to publish it has just informed me I haven’t got the authority to add a category, error 401, so I have to do a C&P job. FRUSTRATED? very
