I hate change.
I used to like change, but I don’t now. I hate it. With all my being, I hate it.
What I really hate is change in the way my computer is working. Or not working, as the case may be.
A while ago, years ? – I can’t remember how long – I switched from IE browser over to Firefox. I was happily going along with FF all this time until recently, and now my whole internet world has been turned upside down. I will sit here searching for an answer and find nothing… it’s taking up all my waking hours – thinking about it and trying to do things to change it.
Images aren’t loading in… I go to places I’ve always visited and there is only text down the left-hand column, no images… but other places load images OK, so there is no rhyme or reason to it.
My brain needs rhyme AND reason to solve problems, random happenings don’t work for me.
I am only a week away from setting up my new tablet – and although I am dreading the “learning curve” that will go with that, (I am slow lately in learning new tech stuff), I am hoping and praying that these problems I’m having with my browsers just won’t exist anymore on a tablet.
I know typing won’t be as easy there. I tend to type fast and even my laptop keyboard is insufficient for me, but the tablet does come with a keyboard, although I haven’t inspected it yet and I suspect it will be even more insufficient for me, a typist by trade. I can’t even fathom how people can type out stuff using the one finger method… it just boggles my mind. I know a lot of people do it, but for me, typing is like talking – my fingers do the talking and I never look at the keyboard… just at the screen… but I think this will be one of those “changes” I will be forced to learn how to do.
So right now I am using IE as my browser only because FF just was so horrible to me lately, and now it keeps wanting to upgrade or update or whatever… and I won’t let it if a pop-up happens… MS also recently updated… and I had to go back and reset my computer to a previous time period!
I am slowly going mad. I feel like Ingrid Bergman in “Gaslight” – s-l-o-w-l-y g-o-i-n-g m-a-d!!!
There are dog furs everywhere in here and I hurt so much that the thought of hefting around the Dyson vac to clean this sty of the furs is nauseating to me.
Paul is in the basement working on his traps. Building traps from kits. Which means he has the air-compressor going, and the clip-gun which fastens the clips onto the metal trap wire… and it’s very noisy… and Kip just HATES it all! He is frantic the whole time this noise is going on. But there is nothing I can do about it. I let him out just now but I can’t just leave him out there…
Oh, the other day a coyote was moseying up the middle of our street, in broad daylight, right in front of Paul, looked him right in the eye, he did, and kept on walking… checking out the yards – looking for some future meal? God, I cannot leave the dogs out there unwatched any more at all. They go out, I sit in the door and watch them the whole time, always on the lookout for coyotes or badgers or skunks, bucks (yes!) or foxes… we have ’em all! I read where people let their pets out in their yards and they lose them to these critters! In a flash! Granted, the pets are smaller than my dogs, but still, it would send me right over the edge if that happened here. I am teetering on the edge as it is now… I don’t need a push!
Jeers for Firefox (if you are reading this FF, you sucque!) and Happy Holidays to everyone else.
