Luddite Life


Why not become a Luddite? I mean, I've been putzing around for the past two days, in two hour chunks of time, talking with Verizon tech support folks trying to, first, get my existing modem/router working from a wireless standpoint and then, when that failed, trying to get a NEW modem/router working from any standpoint and then, when THAT failed, trying not to scream FU*$ loudly enough for the kids to hear and then, when THAT, TOO, failed, trying to get eMachines to help me system restore my Verizon-tech-destroyed computer and then, when YES THAT, TOO, FAILED, driving myself to the ER because I've punched a hole in the monitor and have blood oozing out of me.


Okay, the last part is an exaggeration. No monitors (or knuckles) were harmed in the never ending saga of why I am becoming a Luddite. Or at least a Mac owner.


FU*$! FU*$!

Nevuh!
