I have three computers. Does that sound excessive? It does to me. I don’t want three. One that works properly would be nice. I'm suspecting these three of artificial intelligence and sinister intentions. They have personalities.
The oldest is a basic desk pc. It’s slow and has ticks, functioning with a distinctly grumpy attitude. On this computer, Internet Explorer does not function at all. However, I can get online with other providers. Sometimes Windows Control panel stops working and has to close. That makes it difficult to change programs, but I can work in whatever is open when the failure occurs. Grumpy refuses to load voice recognition software.
Computer two is a chubby, old laptop. Heavy and a little loud, he refuses to see any wireless network at all. I know the wireless is functioning in the house, chubby laptop insists Windows can not configure it. He accepted the voice recognition software though.
Computer three is a light little laptop that is the most spoiled bit of plastic and motherboard you every saw. She came with Vista so has a voice recognition program and will NOT accept any other voice recognition program. Her program works at a twenty percent correct rate. Very bad.
She has an internal partition for backing up and her system requires back up to function. The partitioned space is too small so the computer stopped working. I had to buy her an external hard drive to back up too
The mouse indicator disappears when she gets hot. So I bought a cool pad for her. Mouse worked fine for four days. Because of the jump in electric costs we have not turned on the AC yet. Today the princess computer went black screen. I’m assuming it’s the heat and humidity because sometimes she gives me the screen back, but only for a while.
The temperature in north east Ohio has not cracked eighty for three weeks. It’s not that hot!! Yelling this at her does not get a working screen.
At wits end. Must work on computers. Dread trying to get a new one. How do I know it will work? My eye is twitching and I expect other ticks will start soon. Silly, spoiled computer has a hostage, the manuscript I just started.
