Ah, the joys of the computer age! When the computer is working properly, all is well. I do not need to understand how it works; I simply need it to work! When the computer is ill, then office work might suffer. How we do rely on computers!
I remember an age when most everything to do with writing, photography, reading etc was done within a less technological framework. I did not grow up with computers in school, and did not learn how to type until I was 20 years old – and that, out of necessity! Now, even the littlest of kids can use a mobile phone and tap at it to play games or text messages.
But back to my computer problem. I have an Apple Mac, and iphoto is not working. A month or two back, I had to have the hard drive changed altogether because the computer was failing. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that iphoto was working intermittently, but not properly. It did not concern me much at the time, but when it finally flashed a message at me to say that it was damaged, I thought I had better get in touch with Apple to get it sorted out.
So here I am, sitting and typing this post whilst being put on hold by Apple to try and get a senior technician to deal with my 2.5 year old Mac. I had already spoken to an automated voice and then been put on hold for a few minutes in order to speak to a first level technician. After what felt like over 1.5 hours of speaking with him, the problem was still unresolved. Thus his decision to link me to a senior technician.
Well, after a wait of 10 minutes, I was put through to the technician, and you now have one happy bunny who has seen the problem resolved on her computer. The senior guy took approximately 10-15 minutes to sort out the problem, and if I had been able to speak with him originally, I would not have had to stay on the phone for 2 hours! Computer are great when they work; but so frustrating when they do not!
Having retrieved my iphoto images, I am now in a position to share a few photos with you in this post. I hope you like them as much as I do. Enjoy!
