Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll: Technology Nightmares

Happy Friday Persephoneers! We can all get through a Friday standing on our heads, right? Of course we can, because we’re f’ing badass. 

For today’s LTP, I’m drawing on my own annoying Thursday, which I spent trying to get my POS computer to boot. Sadly, the main hard drive is shot, so I’m trying to re-animate my entire digital life. This is even less fun than it sounds.

If you were Empress (or Emperor) of Everything, what one piece of technology would you invent or improve upon?

I am so frustrated right now. I’ve been helping my younger brother with his essay research for the past few hours (He has like 4 to do and he’s been putting them off and they’re all do on Sunday and he’s been WHINY and I can’t take it much more) and I want my apartment back. Like, four hours ago.
I love the kid but I have my own homework to do and this Friday was supposed to be the ‘relax and catch up and stuff’ day. Instead it’s been Listen to the Kid Whine day and I really really am done with it.

OH MY GOD you guys I am so bored today. I have lots to do at work but it’s all email/computer/sitting at desk related and I just can’t bring myself to do it soboringohmygod. SO, instead of working, I’ve been looking up furniture I like and trying to learn how to make a tiled top table. I’m not crafty and I doubt I’ve ever finished a project before (just my coloring pages), but hey, furniture is flipping expensive, so if I want my tiled top table, I’ll have to make it myself. I’m partial to Mexican Talavera tiles.

My entire degree is on a series of computers.  All my writing, all my work, all my….. everything.  The prospect of reanimating my digital life is…… very scary (back up, yes, but there’s only so many places you can back up dozens of gigs of data :/).  Good luck!
