I try to go on the internet, and get the messages, (Cannot connect) (Try again) (Refresh,) or many others, and I have a sudden rush of “jumble” to my brain.
Thank God for a husband who understands a little bit more than I, and usually gets me out of a “jam.”
Every day we go walking, and many times in Wal-Mart, for 30 minutes, and the only totally long aisle we walk is the electronics aisle. Why? I think my husband has an electronics magnet of some sort. He cannot resist the pull.
I shudder every time a new electronic device enters our house, because there are so many new things to learn that he often wants my help. I, who do not understand the picky computer that throws so many messages to me, I think I have built a hatred for them all, as they are all computer related.
One time, I really got in a mess. I received a letter from “Hotmail,” telling me that they were experiencing a lot of Spam, and needed me to verify my name, complete address, and password, so that they were sure I was the owner of the account.
Well, of course, you must do everything the computer says, so I faithfully filled in the blanks, and, swish, the screen went blank, my addresses all blocked out, and I had no email. Yes, you guessed it, it had been sent to me through “spam.” This situation was not repaired for some time as we picked everyone‘s brain as to what we should do, and ended up with computer repair, a big bill, a new email address with another company, and hopefully, a little more savvy as to what not to do.
I still get a lot of spam. (No, the virus protector doesn’t take care of it all.) Hopefully, however, I’ve learned a lesson.
Yes, there are times that I believe that computers will be the death of me.
