If there’s one thing about computers, or should that be computer software, that gets on my tits it’s when an application unexpectedly stops working in its usual fashion. This time it’s one of my email accounts that’s gone AWOL. I’ve dug through all the settings and can’t see any obvious change. I’ve contacted the support team but they have been as much use as a chocolate teapot appearing to know even less than I do. I have now given up, crossed my fingers and hoping that it starts working again just as suddenly as it stopped.
The Photography Show at the NEC Birmingham starts this weekend. Anyone going? When I was given free tickets I was a regular but having to pay puts me off mainly because I’m not in the market for any new equipment. Nowadays I’m of the view that when it comes to shooting pretty girls all cameras are much of a muchness and in many cases your mobile phone is plenty good enough if you only upload to the web.
It’s been a shocker of a month for me and my credit card. Partially broken things that I have been making do with have finally given up the ghost and forced me into a program of replacements and when I say things I mean boring household things, nothing exciting except maybe for my mobile. Add to that some upcoming dental work and you can see why I’m not a happy chappie.
