Modern technology, isn't it great?, Lately around our house, it isn't. My husband buys a new printer, and needs to install Windows XP, so it will work. Nothing but trouble.
I put in a new phone line and the installer messes up my main phone line. I have 5 phones on the 3 stories of my house, and 2 of those phones now won't work.
My husband and I both have Cable on our televisions. My cable reception is perfect, but my husband did not get some of the local channels.
Well the cable problem got fixed. Today, I am hoping to fix the SBC telephone problem. It is really a pain that my answering machine is not picking up, and I have to listen to all that ringing.
Modern technology. We come to rely on it so much. What did we do before answering machines and internet and cable television? We answered our phones and if we were lucky our television pictures were not too staticky (not sure about that spelling.)
This morning I had so much trouble getting on the internet using AOL. I did figure out how to be on MiceChat and listen to my music I programmed in.
So when things are working, it is great. When they aren't and we need tp bring in a repairman, well that's one of those necessary pains of everyday life.
I just don't understand why my husband won't make a phone call to fix his computer problem. He has e-mailed and is now talking about buying a book. I told him to just call Microsoft. He has Microsoft and I have AOL.
Well the SBC guy is here so hopefully one of my problems will get solved.
