I admit that life demands a place over blogging. I admit that faith, family, friends, work, and keeping up with laundry, mowing, etc. get in the way, too. However, over the past few weeks, I have actually written a few blogs, but my computer would not let me post them, and then they disappeared.
Eventually, I realized the truth.
Whenever I arrive home—early, late, whatever—Louis (our dog) expects to eat. Whenever Adam, my son is gone, his cat demands attention from me—lots of attention—just so long as I don’t try to actually pick her up and hold her.
OMG*, my computers have developed similar traits. If I don’t pay them adequate attention, they act out—obvious passive aggressive actions.
First, it’s a slowing of all functions followed by lost files. Something like:
Me: “Open blog May 2, 2017”
Computer: “ Huh?
Then the computer moves to:
“I can’t locate the file.
What application do you want to use to open the file?
The file is corrupted and cannot be opened.
Ooops! The dog ate my files—I mean file not located.”
I’ve been busy looking at new computers online—using the offending computer—but it has such an inflated opinion of itself, it doesn’t seem to care. It just might be in for a big surprise. Feel free to castigate my offensive hardware.
