I’ve had a great run with my laptop I got in 2009, but it’s been acting up a lot lately. I didn’t want to do it, but I broke down and bought a new computer. After hearing all the horror stories about Windows 8 and 8.1 supposedly being better, I plunked down my hard earned (plastic) cash and bought an 8.1 equipped laptop.
The horror stories? They weren’t horrible enough. I’ve had no luck trying to understand this system, what was Microsoft thinking anyway?
Out of desperation, I’ve ordered a user manual for it while my old laptop (which I’m writing on now)is still hanging in there. I passed on Windows 8.1 for Dummies and moved on to Windows 8.1 for Total Computer Idiots.
I’ve also ordered a large box of tissues for use as I cry my eyes out trying to learn this *#@^*&% crazy system.
Remember my background is fixing things with hammers. If they are stubborn, then I use a bigger hammer. Bit, bytes, “0”s and “1”s are over my head. Gee, I wonder if Rick, the all knowing Computer Guru makes house calls? ;c)
