I’ve been having random fights with my PC. It likes to crash when I’m not looking. About 2 weeks ago – it crashed and stayed crashed.
I blame Windows 10. All this nonsense started when Microsoft did a stealth update on my computer.
Did I ask for Windows 10? No – seeing though every time the little prompt came up –
FREE UPGRADE – YOU KNOW YOU WANT THIS!!!!
I told the damn computer, No, I really, REALLY don’t want this.
I guess Microsoft thought they knew best, because one night, when the world was quiet and zzzz’s were being issued from the bedrooms upstairs…those sneaky little f**kers slapped 10 into my 6 year old PC without so much as a by-your-leave.
electronic rape, anyone?
I was perfectly OK with the Windows 7 OS that came with the PC – although, to be perfectly honest, XP was my favorite out of the Microsoft bunch.
10. Really. Sucks. Not only do you have to deal with a perky, bubbly Cortana down on the left corner of the screen chirping “Ask me ANYTHING!”, she continually suggests that the Edge browser she’s tied to is far superior to the Firefox browser I’ve been running for 5 years.
She regularly disses Chrome, too…
Edge sucks more than Windows 10 and Internet Explorer combined.
Currently, I’m stuck on a little laptop…yet another Windows product, but a non-crashing one.
The problem with my laptop? It doesn’t have any of my Excel workbooks (Keto & Chainmaille), any of my Word documents, Photoshop, or any of my images.
6 years of serious/semi-serious/goofy photo work – all stuck in a PC that my Eldest is still working on getting back to running status. So far, he’s managed to remove 10, and reinstall 7 – but he still needs to update some of the drivers in the thing…
Gawd…I miss my image files…
So I’m gonna share out some of my favorites which are stuck in this WordPress storage site – for nostalgia…
