There is absolutely nothing that frustrates me more than computers. It was a day of Nothing Accomplished because I’ve been fighting with my computer for weeks, delaying the submission of my book, Red Dirt In My Soul, to a publisher. Time is running out, and while I hit “SUBMIT”, I couldn’t tell anything happened.
Did it go? Did it not? Is there an email that says it was received? Is it the folder of photo illustrations that wouldn’t open, but I could drag and drop? Should I just forget the photos? Should I try it on my iPad? Another browser? Is it my ten year old computer that is slowing down dramatically? If I get rid of 10,000 photos would that help? All my photos should be on an external hard drive, but are they? If they’re on an external 2TB hard drive, that shouldn’t slow my computer, should it?
All I want to do is submit my stupid little book…
And blog on time… all my blogging is coming from my iPad… which isn’t that easy for me to do… transferring photos here, hoping they’re the best ones but I can only look at them on my camera’s small screen before they’re transferred… then I posting at weird times… where did all my readers go? It’s no wonder I want to pitch this all over the bank on occasion!
I’ll be all right… I will go out and take more photos… and “enjoy” this new snowstorm… and come back and try again. You just get to be the lucky ones to hear me vent! There is a video of our new bale feeder coming up, when I get to hating the computer stuff a little less!
Oh, and by the way, what time would you like to see my blog appear? Late night? Early morning? Mid Morning? Do you read it on Facebook or directly off the internet? Do you get it emailed directly to you? Please let me know… and what time zone you’re in!
