Argh! Technology has been wrestling with me for weeks now, and it didn’t let up this week either. For the past several days it has been my wireless Internet connection, my PDA smart-phone, and my furnace thermostat.
Yesterday morning at this time, my mom and I were shivering like crazy. Thankfully, that was fixed by 11:00 a.m. with the install of a new thermostat and the instructions of how to make the furnace recycle. The repairman was concerned, however, about the furnace not putting out heat until I did that recycle before he arrived. If it does this again, he’ll have to come back out and check things out a bit more. (Please God, don’t let me need a new furnace.)
The other two items mentioned seem to be resolved after way too many hours spent on the phone talking to tech support. I mean, most of these tech guys are really, really nice but it still isn’t a lot of fun to be on the phone for such long stretches.
And now I am woefully behind on my writing. So far behind it gives me a headache. Today … yes, today I’ll make more headway.
Now I must get to work on aforementioned manuscript, but I cannot conclude this post without saying thank you to all those who phoned in their votes to American Idol so that a certain female contestant got the boot on last night’s show. You all know who I mean.
