Uphill Battle

I’m sitting here trying to get a 10 year old computer to work. Why? As Sir Edmund Hillary said, “Because it’s there!”

Some people do crossword puzzles. Others read mysteries and beat the protagonist to the solution. Beating Sherlock Holmes, or Hercule Poirot (or better yet, Columbo) to the answer is satisfying.

As for me, I’ve got this $50, ten year old computer that I’m trying to outwit.

I guess it’s my Rubik’s cube. It’s a puzzle to be solved just to keep my brain working.

‘Scuse me, but I have to get back to my computer.

Sad, isn’t it?
