My Computer Is "Very Clean"--So Why Doesn't It Work?

Peter, the computer hospital guy, doesn't know what's wrong with my Dell and charged me $107 for telling me that. To make me feel better, he once again gave me many kudos for maintaining such a clean hard drive. "The cleanest I've ever seen ... " Uh, so Peter, why isn't my computer working? "I don't know. Very strange ... " he said.

Tomorrow, I've got the cable guy coming. Right now I can work on my computer, but Internet connections are dreadfully slow: 243 bytes/sec. Think of a snail. A disgustingly slow and semicomatose snail. To get a page to load, I have to stare at a blank page for 5-7 minutes. Except for Google--that loads in a flash.

Computers are the bane of our existence. I hate computers. But I also love them when they work properly, and I need, want, and miss mine ... It's love-hate relationship.

I need to scream: #$%&**&(&)*)(*(*(#!!. Thank you for your patience. I feel better now. Hugs to you--see y'all soon.

You need to move near us. Dan would have looked at your computer for free, and I have never seen him not get one to work.

NOTHING frustrates me more than computer problems. It's like there's a mean little gremlin in there, giggling away at our frustrated screams.

I know what's wrong with it. Dell computers are from Hell.

Dan, come fix my computer! Lynda, come with him. I have ice cream.

Beth, I feel the same way. They're unplugging things, spiking the electricity, and having a field day in my computer right this minute, I just know it. Little creeps.

Nobody, I didn't know Dell had that reputation. Now you tell me. :)

I think the problem is the LACK of spyware and porn. Mine runs great!
