This is not the first time I will have complained about my trials with Computers. I have gone to great measures and expense to make my experience with these life altering machines,easier. I love this grand age of technology, and truly wish to fully submerge myself in it. There is one problem, I don’t know how.
I have owned a computer since the Commodore 64. Truly, I have tried to wrap my brain around how to get them, these infuriating, confusing, assistants, to do what I want them to do. Then, as soon as I have mastered one system, I am told by several people, that my system is outdated. You simple cannot have Windows XP as an operating system or write a novel on Microsoft Office 2003, in 2012, it is impossible. You must work on the most current technology available. Never mind that what’s current changes every twenty minutes, or so it seems to me.
True to my stubborn nature, I did not take the word of the naysayers and did attempt to mix newer technology with older systems. But the crepe hangers were correct, it just didn’t work. Time to put my dinosaurs to rest. No networking iPad and Windows XP. What’s a person to do?
I took the plunge and purchased a new laptop, running Windows 7. I also got the newest Microsoft Office. I should be in heaven, right? Wrong! I still want a lot of the stuff which is located on my old pc. How do I get it transferred to my fast new laptop. Remember I can’t network them – XP and 7, No no no. I want to move documents and music – how do I get my new laptop to print out on my current printer? I have a wireless router, but have no clue how to network my stuff. I’m beginning to long for an inkwell and a quill.
It’s not that I’m a total dunce when it comes to computers and such. The difficulty stems from the fact that I was born about twenty years too early and it just doesn’t come easy. Yes, I knew you would have figured out the solution to my dilemma after having read this far. I need a Geek!!
Remember when being a Geek was a bad thing? Who would have thought in the year twenty twelve they would be the most sought after individuals in the modern world? So if you run across a bored individual who claims that they have knowledge of all the things I don’t have knowledge of, they just might be a Geek. Please send that wonderful person my way.
