Stupid Computer!

I came from work (my DSL haven) around 6 tonight, prepared dinner, took a shower, got the kids in bed, and turned on my antiquated, dial-up dinosaur.

Stupid pieca gruntin, hourglas-turnin, page-reload refusin, near worthless hunk of frustration!

Sam, let's take it outside and PISS ON IT!

My Gawd! I had to type in the code for that link! My url button doesn't even work!

These are trying times. Nor can I open any comments, so I can't show you beautiful people any love tonight. Just know it's here for you.

And now... I will turn this loud, whirring monstah off and find me some good, light-hearted reruns to lighten my mood.

I tried the wet bar first, and it is a sad scene. Nothin left but 4 bottles of liqueur and an unopened bottle of tequila with a segmented worm in the bottom of it.

So I'm sipping my amaretto, hitting the publish button, and hoping for the best. (I'm almost afraid to check...)

Hello good looking, I know what you mean, I shot one of mine a few years ago. I just got moved and set everything back up, also got me a new big desk. Earthlink and most of the servers are not in Macincrack county, so I had to do to the local phone company, which is owned by one woman, and it sucks. Take care and yes, lets piss on it, Cat.

That just plain sucks. One of the perks of being married to an IT God....Honey, it's broke. Fix it. Then I just head on off to one othe other computers in the house. Good luck!

If Key had a silver-haired sugardaddy he'd BUY her a brand new computer and a high-speed internet connection, too. But she doesn't have one of those.

So... she's stuck with the choices she made. BWHAHAHAHAAAA! That's what you get for not meeting me 25 years ago.

Do the math. I was 5!

Besides, using this machine is a true test of patience. I'm building character over here, seeing how much pain I can take...

...then, when I can take no more, I shall steal one of the nice 'uns from the office, and pay an extra $15 for the DSL freshly run on my street.

For the moment, I'm just hoping this comment will post. ;)

I don't do math. I was an English major.

Bring the old one in April, and let everyone take a shot at it. Be good for a laugh.

Now you know why I do most of my blog stuff on a Macintosh!

Like I told Sam - GET A MAC! Once you do Mac you'll never go back.

Don't you know that Bill Gates is satan?

Reporting as ordered by the Acidman. We ALL need to get some linky-love from time to time.

I can commiserate with your home side computer conditions. We have DSL on the E-machine, but it seems that Mamamontezz is monopolizing that fast connection on a decent machine and I'm relegated to the old POS 1-gig boat anchor on the dial-up. :( No wonder I don't get the traffic she does! LOL

Nah, I refuse to believe that it's because she's a better writer...more talented blogger and all around GOOD Person than I am, that hogs the good equipment/conection... That Male gene, you understand.
