Honestly and truly, I have no idea why technology plots against me. Nine times out of ten, when I'm doing anything connected to computers, I have issues.
This time, it was loading a new program onto my computer. Piece of cake, you think? Any techno-dummy can handle it, right? All you have to do is stick in the CD and follow the prompts.
I put in the CD.... Things moved along for a while.... Then a new file began loading...and loading...and loading.... And never stopped.
Called Tech Support. Got cut off. They called me back. Got cut off again.
Can you feel the frustration building? LOL
On my own again, tried rebooting the computer. Attempted re-clicking the CD. Went through the cycle of start, stop, start again, stop again--and at last, success!
Finally finished installing the program.
The program that should have taken...oh, approximately thirty minutes to load. And actually took four hours-plus.
So, I ask you:
Do things like this happen to you, too, or is it *really* a conspiracy? ;-))
All my best to you,
