Step away from the printer!

Anyone else ever want to throw misbehaving machines? In this case, my printer has been misbehaving for weeks. Usually it's the black ink cartridge--I'll never buy the generic brand again!--which is annoying since I'm usually printing off pages to read. This time it's the color ink cartridge stopping all printing and all I want to do is print my pages in black and white, but no, that can't be done if either of the cartridges misbehave. Bloody irritating technology. Don't get me wrong, I mostly love technology, but it does have a way of angering me like nothing else can. If it would only do its job!

Technology is meant to make life easier; more irritating too sometines when things don't work as they should. Got to bear with it. That's why I don't like too sophisticated things.

I have wanted to chuck my laptop out of my window for the past three months. It crashes, freezes and goes incredibly slow and it drives me crazy. Although I have to look after it as without it I wouldn't be able to write...or go online... or... God, the laptop runs my life! lol!

Too true, alfaking. And we're too reliant now.

A.Writer, I know the feeling! My college computer (may he RIP) died the blue screen of death. *sniff* I don't know what I'd do without my laptop either, it really does run my life: Blogs, news, the ease of writing, and printing - when it works of course. I shudder to think of editing chapter upon chapter with a typewriter!
