I like owning a laptop. It's so helpful and convenient.
But there are aspects to owning it that I simply don't understand, which frustrates me to no end. Such aspects include: how to fix it.
I don't have many websites that I visit regularly; just a handful, really. One of them is youtube, though, and at least weekly, my blood pressure begins to rise when I get this message:
Perhaps more frustrating are the initial options: Reload page (resulting in the screen freezing again for WhoKnowsHowLong) or Submit a crash report (which helps with absolutely NOTHING).
So I take a deep breath and go to my control panel and Uninstall Stuff and Download Latest Versions, but that only works some of the time, which is not a reliable enough percentage to result in my satisfaction.
I get suggestions and advice from my outcries on twitter, and even phone call walk-throughs from the most patient of my friends.
Here are my questions about the situation:
~ Why is this happening so frequently?
~ What can I do to prevent this from happening so frequently?
~ Should I be taking my laptop to a doctor for checkups or something?
~ Are you a laptop doctor? Or do you know one?
~ Where can I learn more about laptop maintenance and such?
Will you teach me?* I'd really, really like to learn.
*I also have questions about my external hard drive, photo resizing, getting rid of the stuff on my computer that I don't use/need, and Mary Murphy's face. Can you help me with those, too?
