Computers Know Fear

Hubby is always telling me this, and it has got to the stage when I’m afraid to click on anything unfamiliar in case I import some gremlin.
My laptop crashed a little while ago (I still don’t know what I did) so Hubby had to sort it for me. He’s useful like that and used to fix these things.
Anyway, today I had a lesson in uploading downloads to install wireless connection to our printer. Sounds fun doesn’t it.
I did what I was told, clicked where I had to, and continued where necessary.
The first attempt started off OK, but then kinda stalled in the middle, so we had to start again.
I should point out here that Hubby has already installed this gem on his laptop, which is the same as mine only 6 months older, and had no problems (what a surprise).

We were doing OK and managed to get the first copies of my newsletter printed. I was impressed.
However, it was shortlived as the next set of prints remained in the queue, so Hubby took over.
And had to start again!

He started one of these online chat conversations with their help support, and I found it really funny.
It turns out that he should have downloaded the first part of the systems programme before trying to install the wireless part.
Hubby said he didn’t know there was any ‘first part’ as it didn’t show on the installation wizard.
The reply was that it was all explained in the user manual.
Hubby said we haven’t got a user manual.

Wait for it…………… wait for it……………..

The user manual is included in the download package once it has been installed correctly.

And there I was thinking it was just me.

Note:
I have now run off all my newsletters after being connected wirelessly to our printer thanks to a bit of Hubby magic behind the scenes and bypassing bits that aren’t relevant to my laptop anyway.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Yes, that sounds like technology. It’s like our electric company who wants us to go on-line when we have a power outage. We have a smart phone now but prior to that when the electricity was out so was the computer and there was no on-line in this house.
