Lucky the Lumberer

Like Rosie the Riveter, except not.


What is it about fixing your own computer, internet or cable that feels so damn good?

Was about to throw computer out the window, situation thankfully diffused. Google is the best.

New query, though. For some reason, when I get emails from a listserv on my Blackberry, they start like five lines down. It's like a pebble in my shoe; not huge but oh-so-irritating. Also when I hit "stop" on my DVD player instead of stopping it goes back to the beginning instead of just stopping like I instructed. I watch Grey's Anatomy every morning while getting ready for work and a week passed before I realized I was watching George fall down the stairs and break his arm YET AGAIN.

It is vair vair annoying.

I hate when stuff doesn't work properly. Even if it's something small like the aforementioned scenario (I could just keep hitting fast forward), it's the principle of the matter (why should I have to keep hitting fast forward?!). Am I right or am I right?

Tell me I am not alone. What seemingly little things bother you (about technology or otherwise)?

Last night, I had my gf install RAM in her laptop. While it is easy to do, she was so excited, she went out and bought a 6-pack of beers and cigars and we smoked and drank on our balcony. I figure I will let her do the maintenance work. Next, changing the oil in her car.

LOL and welcome :]
If she can successfully change the oil in her car then the celebratory beers and cigars should be on you!
