New Mac Hard Disk

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Today Marty found a new hard disk for my broken MacBook.  He has installed the disk and restored the operating system.  I have installed FireFox and now I need to see what I can do about the data that was stored on my broken disk.  I am so pleased to be able to use it again and I’m shocked by how much I missed it.

Technology Still Failing

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

I don’t know what is going wrong with my computers today. My PC keeps breaking. Something is filling up the disk space causing my applications to all crash in a heap which is making it practically unusable. But I thought that this wouldn’t be too much of a problem as I could use my shiny still quite new Macbook. But no. It’s about as useful as a brick tonight as it no longer connects to the Internet.

I’m going to go and read a book.

Technology Fails Me

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

I haven’t been having a good day. I tried to do something in Facebook this morning and I kept getting an error message telling me that I had to join a high school network as I was under 18. Well, I’m not under 18 and as my correct date of birth is entered into Facebook I’m not sure why it thinks I am either. So, I sent a message to support and gave up trying to send messages via Facebook.

I then thought I would print out the details of my assignments and the papers I was trying to read today as I really don’t like reading PDFs on computer. But I got some sort of error that stopped my web browser from working and made it crash. After much messing around I eventually worked out that my computer can’t see the printer though it does appear to be on and working. So, no printing either.

Then my aggregator crashed.

I then thought I could try to sort out my October travel plans as I am planning on attending the Pittsburgh Perl Workshop but I keep getting error messages telling me that they can’t get a price for my itinerary and that I need to ring a support desk. After this happened with three separate airlines I just get the feeling that I’m not meant to leave Japan.

I’m not quite sure what I should try to do next but I think it will be something that doesn’t involve a computer.
