A Rhetorical Question

. . . that's been bugging me for the last few days.

Why do all things electronic seem to resent me? I'll admit, I don't understand binary code as a primary language, but I know enough to identify the slidy-out-thing as a place to put a CD or DVD, rather than thinking my computer comes with a handy cupholder.

Alas, it appears that more is required of me. At this moment, my home computer is poxed with - well, something. Whatever it has, it's got it bad. It'll try to connect to Windows, but will then give the computer equivalent of a death rattle and - well, it's bad. Further, my laptop (it's work related; I travel for my job) will, for some freakish reason, hop on a wireless connection with no problem, but really doesn't want to connect through a cable and my house doesn't have wireless. So I'm at the coffee shop. I've been updating student rolls and announcements (long story that really isn't interesting to anyone who isn't me, so I'll spare you), but decided to post a "why me?" sort of thing.

Sigh. I know February isn't really out to get me, but some days it looks that way.

No picture this week - it's just one more chance for something electronic to go screwy.

There's good stuff going on, too, but I'm sticking with my theme here. I know I have some sackcloth around here somewhere . . . woe, woe, woe!! (Rending of garments, gnashing of teeth. Repeat as necessary.)
