Battling with my computer

I’m a tenacious IT bod with a reputation for fixing all things technical (often simply by standing in front of the ‘miscreant’ piece of equipment), but sometimes even I¬†get a bit fed up with having to fix things which go wrong through no fault of my own.

For example, suddenly overnight, web pages don’t display properly. Nothing has happened at my end (as far as I know), but do you think I can find an answer? Knowing how to ask the question¬†certainly helps.

Microsoft issue an update, or one of the other most used programs (eg Flash Player in this particular case), and today I can’t get a site to work that was 100% OK yesterday! All the fixes and advice offered by Adobe have come to nought. So I’ve no chance of making my fortune on a Lottery Instant Win until it’s fixed. Better get back to business.

But it does look like I might be getting that new computer sooner rather than later!

At least I have access to a fantastic source of help and advice in the PlanetSMS forum. Here’s hoping we can get the problems sorted soon as they really are driving me crazy!

Until next time – may your computer remain steadfast.
