I can operate a camera on automatic
to show how much Bonnie has grown
and how much she dislikes sitting like this...
but give me an programming problem or a hardware techie problem I'm like a fish outta water. I've had a few friends direct me how to fix this and that and they've saved me. On my own I am lost.
I've always been one who likes to know the reason WHY something works or WHY I have to do it a certain way. In my mind if there is a reason, I can do it. This frustrated my parents, my teachers, my employees and still frustrates the people I'm around. For some helpless reason I can't fix electronics unless I know why it has to be done that way and I don't have a clue.
Since lightning hit our phone I've lost my wireless extender signal to my quiet room. I have the phone company wireless that grabbed my Netgear that piggy backed my D-Link. When the phone company "helped" me get back on line, they did something that keeps my Netgear from "seeing" the network...I think I'm using the correct terms. I've done a reset on Netgear. The computer will "see" the phone company router and will "see" the Netgear but not at the same time!!!
I've poured over pages of directions and nothing made sense to me at all. Those of you who can read direction manuals as easily as See Spot Run, I applaud you. When someone says, oh, just do this or that and you'll be fine. NO, I won't. I don't get it!!!
So I sit in the art/craft/sewing/creating area with Xbox pounding on my right and Gunsmoke or Bat Masterson booming behind me...through walls. I need my quiet room!!!
I guess I can pay a Geek fee to get my peaceful spot back. After all I did save that much by doing my own plumbing this week.
