I have managed to crash my computer at least 3 times this year. I don't know how I do it - just that not knowing what I am doing has gotten old and dangerous for any important information kept on the computer. Anything "paperless" is not safe around me.
Tom was fed up with fixing it last time I broke it and instituted a "tough love"approach - this time I managed to get a lot of it corrected, but I still have gaps in my knowledge and understanding of these damned machines.
Everyone says "just play around with it and you'll learn" - but that is not my learning style. I can rarely remember the steps of what I have done in order to repeat them now, let alone repeat them months later. So I take notes, which clarify things like some middle of the night scribble when I go to refer to them .
One thing I am very good at is keeping a book full of user names, passwords, codes and log on information. Now I am going to write down all my e-mail addresses, too. I have lost track of a few people this year...
So this time when I set up my user account, instead of calling myself Susan, I have used my new AKA : "Computer Killer". Funny thing is that the little photo icon that popped up was a woman in mid karate kick. Sooo appropriate.
