It would be great to have an IT person come in to clean your computer like a house cleaning service does. They would swoosh out the bad and make it all better. It’s not going to happen here anytime soon.
The other thing I hate are updates. Something always goes kerflooey. (Yes, that’s a technical term!)
Microsoft updated my computer yesterday morning. I was dead in the water for more than an hour. Between freezing out and losing stuff, even my Starbucks mocha wasn’t doing much.
This is when I remember how important backups are. I made a pact with the computer gods that I will back up everything if they make it work NOW.
A half-dozen reboots and a lot of time later, all was good. The gods heard me. I have to backup my stuff. Yes, I do. Yesterday I lost all my contacts (temporarily) and I freaked out. There is no way I remember anyone’s email address or anything else. No birthdays, no Christmas cards, no nothing. I can’t even talk about the calendar. All those appointments (with special notes) lost!
Paper was so reliable as long as you remembered where you put it.
