I have to admit it! I am addicted! To my computer that is. My computer crashed! What an ordeal it has been. This has happened before but not like this. Yes I was lucky I learned and backed up most of my things but there are things I didn’t.
Now I have a list of all my email addresses. It is not really up to date but I have it and now I have to hand type them all in. Where is the technology in that people?? The list is 8 pages. Who wants to do that? Then there are my I-tunes. This is the 3rd time I have had to do this one. This is not fun. I have over 3700 songs on there. As of yet I have not found a way to take them from the I-Pod and put it back on the computer. Now come on I-tunes people this is something that should be in place already. A system to re-download from both directions. Then there were all the pages that I had bookmarked to go back and read or needed for something, or did I?? I recommend that everyone take time to make sure they have backed up what is really important. NOW! Do not wait till it is too late.
So why am I so depended on this little machine? A machine that is built to last only a few years anyway because it is outdated the minute it leaves the store. I have to admit it upset me. I actually thought of going cold turkey and not buying another. Just not have a computer. I am a writer so do I go back to the typewriter or pen and paper? What would be the worst that could happen?? Well obviously I decided not to do it, lol! I couldn’t I am addicted. I admit it!
I think it is because it opens up the world to us. It is a fascinating tool that gives us access to so much. We can pretty much find information on just about anything and everything, everywhere and anywhere. I am able to talk to my cousins in France and England and Australia. I can talk to friends anywhere they are. I can make new friends from all over the world. I can write, learn, read, play games, and communicate all with this stupid box that draws me and keeps me captive. I have this love hate relationship with it. I hate all the technical stuff I don’t understand, I hate that it keeps me captive, I hate that they are made only to last so long but I love it for all the entertainment and knowledge and information I now have access to.
Well this is definitely a RANT! Basically I hope that from this you go and back up all your important info and I really hope that yours does not go thru this. I delayed going and buying a new one for well I don’t know how long, lol but for now I am off to go input all over again.
