IF I had Hair I’d be Bald
IF I had Hair I’d be Bald
Sometimes computers just piss me off. I love computers, don’t get me wrong; I could never go back to a world of longhand, no spell check and reading stuff in really small print. I love Google and Facebook and all that stuff.
My experiences with computers which is the tin foil on my fillings, is losing connectivity and my mystery keyboard.
With losing connectivity at inopportune times and being victim of unwanted keyboard accidents, if I wasn’t bald already, I would have just pulled all my hair out anyway. (That explains the title…wait, don’t go!)
My computer is not directly connected to anything, it receives its signal wifially (it’s a word now; I just added it to dictionary.) I wouldn’t think you could connect to the internet without physically connecting to anything, but you can…most of the time. Most of the time does not included when you are playing on-line poker and you just flopped a full house against a flush. The Flush puts you all-in and as you gleefully call, BING, you get that swirly thing that does not stop swirling until the game decides you and your winning full house have just folded.
I like to leave comments on various posts I read, and from time to time a comment is rather long. When my connection fails for a second or two my long comment disappears. It often disappears as I am reaching for the “send” key.
I find myself yanking imaginary hair out of my challenged scalp.
Even more frustrating is the mystery keyboard. I often accidentally hit an unknown combination of keys which apparently has been coded to do unusual stuff to my screen and my cursor. Am I the only one who has written several hundred words of a post only to look up and find that somewhere along the line my cursor moved to a different part of my screen and I have been typing over hard won text?
I almost blew my brains out over this once until I accidentally hit “ctrl z” and I only lost the new text which was replacing the old text.
Sometimes I accidentally hit a strange combination of keys and shit just goes away! More fake hair pulling.
Yesterday I accidentally hit a strange combination of keys and my entire text was painted. I am sometimes challenged in painting my text to copy to Blogger. This key combination that I accidentally hit might be very helpful. I have no idea what that combination was.
I hate those quick and easy key stroke short cuts! They are more trouble than they are worth and it is impossible to figure out how to use them.
Alright, I’m done; I got that out of my system.
I’m just going to (ctrl s) this, (ctrl c) it, and (ctrl v) it to Blogger.
