I doubt anyone’s even out there any more because I’ve been such a horrid blogger, but I thought I’d give this a try. I’m in computer hell. It’s all about my wireless internet connection, and how crap it is, and how ignorant I am – I don’t even know the names of things to try and look up fixes. Totally intermittent signals. I have to unplug my router and replug it in several times a day to have any luck at all with actually getting to a site after I click on it. Time outs are a constant.
The worst is that I have this tiny little house, one router that supposed to let me connect with my laptop and desktop. Now it’s not letting me connect to anything. It just laughs and mocks me when I try to go online in the other room. Problem is, I look up stuff as I work, and I’m deep, deep into this book, but sitting at the desktop all day is killing my back. I want to do half my pages and desktop, then half on laptop, but because my laptop connection sucks so hard all other suckage is embarrassed, I can’t. I also can’t afford to have someone who actually knows about this stuff look at said stuff until after the book is accepted.
Whine, whine, whine. Totally first world problems and I should be ashamed of myself for talking about it. But I am a spoiled child and I am an internet addict.
Hope everyone’s doing really well. And I mean that!
