A PC RANT
The Cranky Old Man is back. I've been lurking, I've been blogging, but it has not been the same. Some pimply faced little prick who lives in momma's basement blew up my computer using his skill and knowledge to do something negative for no other reason then to piss me off and cost me money.
Congratulations ass-hole, you've done the high tech equivalent to throwing a brick through a window and running away laughing.
I've learned from this experience. Never open any site unless you are positive of the source. Please don't send me any funny you-tube clips, I will not open them. I even received something from Mrs. Cranky which before I opened it she confirmed she never sent. Trust...maybe, but first verify.
I also learned that my security system sucks and the Geek Squad is not really all that smart.
My system did alert me when I opened a malware site, "Hey, hey Ralphie boy. Someone tried to F-up your computer but we blocked it...I think...maybe...good luck!" Never trust a security provider named Norton.
I took the computer to the Geek Squad, and somehow it seems that an unknown ass-hole can plant stuff on my computer to F-it-up, but there is no way to find that batch of shitty instructions and delete them. The Geek Squad can do two things; get you an new password when you forget yours, and install a new hard drive for the cost of a new computer. (I know cousin Nils, you could fix it, should I send it to you?)
For the last several weeks I have been operating with my already infected extra-old PC and or my phone. I have not kept up with other bloggers and many comments went unsendable ( I think it is a word. If conversate is a word, then unsendable is a word.) Fortunately I had backed up the files on my newer now worthless computer, so fuck you, you high tech brick thrower!
I just bought a new PC. It has windows 8, so it has taken me a few days to get used to change #%&@! I also still do not have M-soft Office installed, but basically I am back in action. The new PC has a crappy mouse pad thingy, so Mrs. C turned me on to an actual computer mouse which magically operates the PC without being attached to it. LOVE IT!
So I am back. I am behind in new posts, so I may throw in a few more re-runs or stuff from one of the books I paid to publish. They will be like new to most readers anyway.
I am off to catch up on some blog reading and to create some incredibly creative new posts.
To all you pimply faced little shits busy trying to throw technological bricks through peoples windows, enjoy your miserable life in the basement and please, as remote as the chance may be, please do not procreate!
