All right, people, just back off and give me room to breathe! I'm in a very rotten mood today and I don't want anybody to get hurt.
Jon? In a rotten mood? Impossible!
How could anybody as sweet, easy-going, charming, and utterly irresistible as you ever be in a rotten mood?
Hey, bucko, flattery will get you nowhere. How'd you like me to take that On the Good Ship Lollipop attitude and shove it up your - -
Whoa, Jon! Just calm down and keep away from my ass. What seems to be the problem?
ProbLEMS. With an "S". Plural. Multiple.
First of all I didn't get any sleep - not a damn wink - and when I don't sleep I can't function and can't think and have absolutely no motivation and I turn into a consummate bitch, and come to think of it, even when I DO sleep I usually can't think and can't function and have no motivation, so you can imagine how much worse it is when I DON'T sleep - -
not to mention that my back still hurts and I'm hobbling around like a spastic gremlin and my reading glasses broke so I had to use duck tape to hold them together and my lawn mower's broke so I can't mow the 6,000 frickin' mountain acres that I live on and now that I've finally eliminated the 20,000 carpenter bees that were nesting around my house 50,000 wasps have eagerly moved in and I was supposed to make the 600 mile trip to town yesterday but it rained so hard that I didn't go and as a result I didn't get groceries so I'm completely out of milk and bread, not to mention cat food and cat litter and the litter is the most important thing because without litter my cats are miserable and have been giving me dirty looks and plotting against me........
Wait a minute while I catch my breath. I'm just getting warmed up.
No need to elaborate, Jon. We get the general idea.
Well, I didn't even mention Windows yet. I'm not talking house windows. I'm talking computer Windows. I have major issues with Microsoft. Few entities on earth annoy me more than Windows, and if I could come in physical contact with the sadists in charge I'd punch them so damn hard that they'd all go down like a row of dominoes.
My old desktop computer is still on Windows 7 - - - or is it Windows 3? Hell, with all the problems it has, it might be running on Windows Minus 15.
Are those continuous, infuriatingly annoying never-ending updates really necessary? And if Microsoft is so frickin' great, how come they need to inflict our computers with updates every ten minutes?
So, Jon - updates really bother you, huh?
Don't interrupt. I'm on a roll.
So, it took me over six months to finally figure out the basic rudiments of Windows 8, and just as I was almost getting used to it, the grim announcement came that there's now an upgrade for Windows 10.
By the way - what the hell ever happened to Windows 9? Did I miss something?
Microsoft has more freakin' windows than New York City. Think about that for a moment. It might get funny.
Then again, it might not........
Did anybody happen to encounter Windows Movie Maker 8? It SUCKS big time. In order to make it "easier to use", they eliminated all of the good features that were on Windows Movie Maker 7. I tried to download Windows Movie Maker 7 to my Windows 8 laptop last night with no luck.
So now, in order to make a new video, I'll have to do it on my old computer - - and all the photos and graphics that I want to use are stored on my new laptop.
Okay, I was finally able to download MovieMaker 2.6 to my laptop and I'm happy. Or reasonably happy.
By the way - - did you ever try to use the new improved Windows Easy Transfer? Trust me, it's about as easy as pulling teeth from a hen. Especially since the easy Network transfer no longer works.
A Hungarian pox on Windows and all it's vile components.
Feeling better, Jon?
I will in a few weeks, when my blood pressure goes down.
