If you recall, in my last blog post written way back when, I explained how I had technical problems comin' out of my wazoo. Now I don't rightly know what a wazoo is, but I'm pretty sure that's from where my problems were comin'.
So anyway, ALL MY PROBS can be traced back to ol' Peepers and her total lack of technical Internet knowledge and complete and utter computer incompetency but unfortunately, it is I, Seville the Cat, who is sufferin'.
I'd say I was sufferin' in silence but you know me, silent sufferin' is simply not in my nature.
Like I said before:
The new computer is up and runnin' and I'm beginnin' to adjust to it, I guess. Darn thing is awfully sensitive though. I told it it was a piece of you-know-what-from-the-litterbox yesterday mornin' and as a result, it got all touchy and started cryin' and...
Wait a minute. I don't think that's the kind of sensitivity I meant.
Anyway, a cat drops a loose whisker on this here keyboard and the next thing you know, said cat has written multiple paragraphs of nonsensical nonsense.
And I still haven't figured out how to copy and paste on account of there not bein' any right and left click thingies for my claws to grab hold of, and sometimes a kitty NEEDS to copy and paste the latest recipe for Cheddar and Nip crackers and such, you know?
Of course you do.
And then there's my book.
Duh, duh, duh, duh...
It's still on the old computer, I'm afraid. The data transfer didn't work properly and my book, unlike the peep's stupid files, came out as gobbley-goop.
And if you think all that's bad, wait 'til you hear 'bout the next part.
Somewhere along the line, the password to our old Wifi got changed. The peep says she didn't do it. I know I didn't do it - I think - but try as I might, I couldn't for the nine lives of me get on-line with the new computer.
So we had to get a new modem.
Peepers managed to set that up yesterday and on the plus side, our Internet is now WAY FASTER than it was before. Faster like in the difference between a turtle and a roadrunner, for sure.
And now today, the security services are back! Yup, they're installed and everythin'. I watched while the guy from the phone company remotely took control of the computer and... Remotely... Sounds mysterious, doesn't it?
Mysterious or not, I watched the little arrow thingy move this way and that across the screen. I tried to catch said arrow but alas, it was as elusive as the little red dot.
So now, on a Sunday afternoon, here I am.
And HOPEFULLY by Wednesday I'll be more used to this here new computer.
'Cause boy-oh-boy do I have stuff to share.
