Technology Wins...I Give Up

Due to some frustrating problems arising from the repairs done on my computer, I'm taking an extended leave from blogging. I currently have no program to edit photos...and please don't tell me how easy it is to use Gimp, Picasa, etc...I'm not techie at all. The program I had before the computer meltdown was simple~dimple but apparently it's no longer available. I have lots of photos sitting in my camera and no way to use them.

I'm frustrated, irritated, and depressed about technology and my lack of knowledge about it so I think it's best that I take some time away from the computer before I blow it up!!

  1. I'm sorry about that, but I do understand how you feel. I resently experienced it myself and had a huge job replacing everything. I hope you'll someday find your way back. In the meantime, enjoy your life!

  3. I hear you, Janet. Yours is yet another tech post I've read today -- I wonder when Mercury goes retrograde? I know I'll be dealing with issues soon enough myself. Good luck with getting things back in order.

  5. I totally identify with what you are saying. Having experienced it so much recently, with everything I try to do on the computer. When I had to replace my computer, all the programs I liked and could use, were replaced with "new and improved" that I still have not mastered. I really do try to learn how to use new things, but get so frustrated because they seem to need 5 steps for every ONE step that used to work! Then I blame myself for being too dense to figure it out and change with the times....GRRRR It seems that technology has started to drive a lot of us crazy! Hang in there, walking away for awhile should help some.

  7. Gosh Janet, I understand!!!!A computer is wonderful until it is not! I haven't been real faithful to blogging for awhile, I can't find a good photo editing site, and I have other things on my plate. I will be waiting for your return. Love you girlfriend, Hugs Mary

  9. Hi Janet...I totally understand...I use Windows photo gallery that came with my computer. It's very frustrating...and now when I visit certain blogs, I can't make comments because they want you to join some kind of circle, not going to do that. I think computers are wonderful things...but rather insidious at the same time...Keep in touch...I hope you eventually get your computer problems fixed!
    hugs, Mary
