Technologically Tired and Fundamentally Frustrated

My blog post for today isn't what I had planned.  Why, is a lesson in technological miscommunication with which I am intimately familiar yet seriously deficient. The reason?  JoJo don't know techno!  Actually, my technological skills, or serious lack thereof, are of lesser impact on my techno troubles today than is my nemesis, Methuselah's,  degrading electronic innerds!  If Ghandi were alive today, he'd have resorted to personal computer violence about a month ago! Guantanamo's got NOTHING on this sort of Techno Torture! So at 4am, after all of 4hrs sleep, I'm thinking I'll work on my blogpost, newsletter, answer a few emails and get a jump start on my day when, what to my unsurprised eyes should appear, but a small computer meltdown and 8 new gray hairs! I never got past my blogpost.  I admit it. I gave up.  Finished!  Game over!  Do not pass go; do not collect $200!  Oh where or where has my new computer gone?  The last status update was on the 13th telling me that it had passed "burn in", whatever in the world that is!  We now sit at 19 days after it was ordered and I don't even know if it's been shipped. Methuseslah is suffering from Electronic Alzheimer's and an advanced case of Elderly Electrodes.  I, on the other hand, am slowly slipping into insanity.  I have minimal function left for things like email.  It takes me hours to complete any decent length post of any kind that is web based. This post has already taken me 35 minutes to complete. I sure hope that old saying holds true.  You know, the one about how hitting your head against the wall is great because it feels so good when you stop.  I'm ready, Lord, to experience the other side of Technological Insanity!  Bring it on!

    Now just how are you gonna get that new ‘puter installed without your Daddy? I thought he was in California? Want me to send Ray over? :) Oh boy, I wish I could!!! We could have some tea or go for a nice walk in the Arizona sunset and Ray could battle the technodemons for you. And, of course, Rich could supervise!!! Seriously, praying your newbie is up and running soon. Ain’t none of us needing any more gray hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh JoJo!!! You are indeed learning PATIENCE through this trial!! It’s so frustrating not having a computer! I’m sure you’ll get your new one soon and have it up and running in no time – meanwhile – maybe you’re supposed to just have a nice little break – even a “forced” break is still a break :)
