None Monday

For the first time ever, I'm having to bail on Fun Monday. My wireless is still doing weird things, even though I had one of Sasquatch's friends spend a fair amount of time with it on Sunday. Of course, it worked perfectly for him. I came home from work and got all teary eyed at the sight of the Mozilla Firefox start page. (Is there a more beautiful sight? Or do I need a life?) My bliss ended about sixty seconds later when it booted me off, which it has done three times since. I hate computers.


And it just kicked me off again. I give.


Where the hell is my cuss-o-meter??

Did you say Sasquatch? You were crushed by Sasquatch??

Come in RC.... we're losing your signal.

We'll mark time till you make it back.

RC ........ I'm sending out oodles of empathy, I really am. I hate all this equipment when it goes wrong, being a complete technophobe. You know even more about the wretched computers & routers than I do & yet they are still going wrong!Do hope you can get some one to fix the problem soon.

Oh I am so sad my lovely. But I will forgive your pc. It needs to get sorted as it is causing far too much stress. If you like, I will come over with all my expertise, and erm, give it a kick. x

laurie said...

the only solution is to dictate your post to sasquatch's friend, and let him do the keyboarding.

isn't your mom there, anyway? you shouldn't be blogging. you should be drinking wine and venting!

Rose said...

Take this as a sign from the internet gods: enjoy your mom while she's there and get back to us after!

Potty Mummy said...

Don't worry RC. You don't need to get a life any more than the rest of us do...

I had to get rid of Fire Fox. My whole computer just about completely crashed. I had to reload Windows and Internet Explorer.
Good luck!

my two cents said...

Ours was doing that for a while...more than a little frustrating. I called the provider who sent people out which sometimes worked and sometimes didn't. Sometimes just calling the co. kicked it all back on. Now, when I get the page that says can't find connection there is a link to run a self test and that usually gets it going again. Sometimes just turning the modem off for a few minutes and then back on again helps, too.

Enjoy your mom while she is there and then sneak back here in her suticase!

Just tell us in a word who "he" was. We'll make up the story on our own ;).

I keep having the problem of not being able to comment. One day I can - the next I can't and then the next - just fine again. I think Blogger hates me.

Luckily, I don't ever expect any of this stuff to work, so when it does it's always a bonus.

You clever guys must get really pissed off as you really know what it's supposed to be doing, but I don't.

Ignorance is bliss?

I sure am very, very blissful.

Oh shoot. I'm so sorry. Hope that it is all back up and running soon.

Sorry to hear you're having internet problems. I had those all weekend and was ready to throw my laptop and modem out the window.

ChrisB said...

That's a shame we'll see you next week then!!

Rudee said...

I've been having firefox issues all day. I'm not certain what the problem is. Safari hasn't been an issue. Hope you get it all settled soon.

mjd said...

I am sorry that you cannot come out and play today.

Corey~living and loving said...

I have been away....and can not possible catch up, so I am starting fresh. Hope I didn't miss anything too important.
have a great day.

Faye said...

When you start working on your PC with a hammer may I send over YouTube from my web page--I only have sound part of the time--gr-r-r! Anyway, courage--we know your celebrity crush would have been way too cool for the rest of us.

Rosie said...

21 comments and no post - you must be doing something right! Hope your PC starts behaving soon. They drive me mad at time too.

Alison said...

so sorry...hope it is better soon.

ped crossing said...

Sending all techno vibes your way. Don't you know that cardinal rule of cars and computers is they will work just fine in front of the person that can fix them.

Hope it is working soon!

Sandy said...

When you totally lose it, paste a picture of someone you currently loathe on your pc and then crash it. Literally. Repeatedly. With your car.

There.

Feel better already, don't you?

Hi RC, I have an award for you over at my place.
