It Only Took 2.5 Days to Set Up My New Computer

By
Real Estate Agent with Greater Washington Arera Realty

I'm not complaining.  Well, maybe a tad :)  I mean, I spent a ton on a new computer and of course I should not expect in todays times that I spend 99% of my adult life trying to figure out why the new computer doesn't want to transfer my old files from an external backup system to the new one.  Even with the help from the manufacturer and two of their system experts, it still took 9 hours just to reload my 10 months of work that I thought I would have to re-do....no, not re-do....I'd quit my job first.  Then issues after issues over softwares that used to get along, now don't like each other!  Don't we have enough unrest in this world without now having softwares that hate each other?

Alas, there was hope with 2.5 days of perserverence and just because I'm very stubborn and don't like to lose to inaniment objects...I won!  In fact, the new computer has features that I really like and will make my life easier down the road.

If you've experienced the same frustration, I'm here to say you are not alone.  And I love technology to boot!  It just doesn't always like me.
