Grizzled is in the midst of switching our old computer stuff over to our new computer... I do have limited email and limited internet access in the meantime, which I hate. It's not so much the limited part I hate, it's the new software. It's all of the stuff that looks different. It's not clicking with my brain and I'm irked that it isn't. I don't even feel like I checked my email this morning because the new format and font don't click with the portion of my brain that says, "You read your email"! Instead I feel like I'm reading something that's written in a foreign language. I also feel like I'm sitting too close. How is that. How can a computer program mess with your depth of field?? It's ticking me off.
And I hate this new keyboard! It's teeny and the topography is all wrong. It curves in in the middle. What's up with that? Sure I could use more deskspace, but my hands do not automatically become smaller with every new gadget. I want my old keyboard, I want my old email, I want my old frickin' TypePad back. This one still hesitates as I type. I type faster than the letters come up so I have no idea what I'm erasing or putting up. I expect that this will be an enormous post in a different font than the strange one I'm seeing here. I'd put in my familiar font, but even that looks different.
On top of it, I don't have my beloved Firefox yet with all of its old bookmarks. I'm on Explorer right now and it's warning signs are bigger than the rest of the usuable space. SOMEONE COULD BE PHISHING!!! THESE LINKS YOU JUST PUT UP MIGHT NOT BE SAFE!! DON'T GO OUT AFTER DARK! THE SKY IS FALLING!!!
So... I'm feeling cranky. I don't like that these corporate people just decide how I'm going to be interpreting my world. Yeah, I know... they've been doing it for eons, so why gripe now.
If this crankiness lasts much longer, I'm changing the name of my blog to "Saying Grrrrrr!!!".
