Yesterday the ^*^%*&^ computer decided the only way to open a picture on Photoshop was if I clicked on it and threatened it with Mjolnir… or at least used the “open with Photoshop” option, rather than a simple double click. Then it couldn’t find google earth which meant I couldn’t find my friend’s house (I’m not just tech-impaired, I’m topographically impaired). Then it decided to follow the advice of one of the TED talks I was listening to and leave the fast track and go into slooooooooooooooooooooooooow mode.

Last night I came home, exhausted, with one thought… collapse in the Comfy Chair…

I turn on the TV … which is also a fine example of if it ain’t broke don’t upgrade it (free TV, and it works)…

TV

(yes, that is Donkey, Ron and Harry, Sherlock and Watson as Otter and Hedgehog, a converter box because the TV precedes digital, and a VCR tape player)

I turn it on and get…

blue screen of death

Try to turn box off…

or maybe it was Thor. After all that last ferocious thunderstorm produced at least a few seconds of power outage…

Finally I unplugged the whole bloody thing.

Power back on…

The bloody thing is working.

 

I have no idea.
