Aaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggghhhhh!!!!!! Number 2

I had another aaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhh!!!!!!! moment this morning. It had to do with my computer. Again. I called a tech at the place where I'm supposed to be able to get help transferring my files from my old computer to my new one, which is a replacement for the laptop which broke down last week and wouldn't get on the Internet(I'm keeping my fingers firmly crossed on this one). I couldn't get the external hard drive to do anything. He claimed the compter was "too old". So I still don't have my writing files, nor the pictures I've been saving and saving! I had to do that because my new computer wouldn't "recognize" my old printer. In any case, I'm pretty much back where I started from. Getting desperate, I'm going to ask for help from the family computer guru. He runs a computer system for a local school district. So I assume he knows what he's talking about, especially if he has a thumb drive or something like that, which can transfer these files.

Computers are great when they work. Horrible when they don't cooperate.

Tell me about it. It drives me absolutely nuts when they don't. I had a writing chapter that wouldn't save last night, because the word processing program didn't want to save it the way I did. Ugh. But that was a minor annoyance. So far, my new computer works. I'm keeping my fingers firmly crossed.
