    Just when I think the world cannot possible dump anything else on me, it comes back with a vengeance and produces another s**t storm.

    Well, a mere 3 months after having to get my Laptop fixed as the hard drive failed, It is back in with Best Buy yet again. Turns out this time it is a Software issue with the stupid thing that'll take a week or more to fix and I have to resort to using my universities computer lab until that date to post here. At first, the fella there said that Software issues are not covered under my given warranty, but he talked with his colleague and they said that they would repair it under the warranty regardless.

    Now it is just a matter of when I go to pick it up if they try to charge me like they have done to me before with my last laptop's hard drive failure in which I prepaid for a hard drive, went to pick it up and they said that I owed $60, turns out they didn't install the one I paid for and expected me to pay for it, but I set them straight and it was covered.

    Suddenly can't put library books on my Kobo. I go through the motions but when I eject the reader from my computer the screen stays stuck on the eject screen. Plug it back in without connecting to the computer gets it going again but when I search for the book, it's not on the Kobo. Go through the motions again, it tells me that the book is already on there. Great. Eject. Get stuck on eject screen again. Rinse, repeat. Book is still not there. Dammit.

    I should sync the Kobo and do the updates, it's been two years since I've done it, but every time I did it in the past, some update or the other would bugger things up on it so I stopped the updates. Perhaps a factory reset first, it's not like I need the books that are on there anyway. Most of them were free and they're still on my Kobo account if I ever do decide to read one of them. Grumblesigh. I hate technology. No wonder I prefer real books.

    Now more technology decides to fail me, why am I growing up in this generation!!

    Trying to print coupons from my tablet via Wireless printing and every time I try to do something involving the internet, it decides that It doesn't want to work, but everything else involving the internet works fine on it, or as I like to call this phenomenon "Selective Network Connection", and that's with trying to use not only the internet, but DATA on my stupid tablet as well.

    And now I can't log into through Facebook to access my Shopping List and was about ready to put my fist through this stupid computer at my school I'm using.

    I seem to have the absolute worst luck when it comes to modern technology as EVERY and I mean EVERY device/ piece of technology I have owned has failed in some way!

    I want to go back to the early 2000's, I feel that technology was more reliable back then than it is today

    Thanks for posting.....I was thinking of being a refurbished item from Best Buy and was curious about their warranty - good to know. Is your laptop old? And what brand is it?

    Seems like Facebook had issues yesterday around the time you were posting John. http://canadianoutages.com/status/fa...-at-facebook-4

    Like your selective network connectivity phrase. I could not print Tasty Rewards coupons on one library visit at all. Another day, I had success in printing the coupons. Think SNC has legs!

    Full moon craziness - tonight is the Strawberry moon and elders say its the hardest moon - so lots of weird things the past few days.
    Working at Loblaws here - just organizing the shelves - the meat manager starts talking to me - then talks to me more, asks if I know any single people, ignored him, then I ask for one burger . He says oh your single - nope happily married and he makes a comment if I would cheat. Umm wtf and no f'ing way. Then today empty miway express bus - guy sits besides me - bus is empty every seat empty and he had this weird smell. so I got up and moved ..

    It is an HP Pavilion 15.6, bought it new from them with a GSP (General Service Plan) from Geek Squad. Laptop was $600 and service plan was $140/2 years. Got the laptop August 2015 I believe, Always have the worst luck with my laptops and with the 3 laptops I've had, I've never gotten more than 2 years out of one.

    Its been a crappy four days - dad who is 87 living in a nursing home - being rushed to the hospital throwing up blood, had scope down and he came out. Next day young new intern calls me saying better be ready its the end of your dad. Then freaking out going to work and my sane aunt said call his nurse and get a better understanding. Nope not at the end just needs a blood transfusion. Like why would you scare the living crap out of me and saying all doom and gloom and the nurse was like nope he was never near that. After the blood transfusion, he ate a lot and all vitals signs great. But she better get some bed side manner before she practices on her own.

    Only positive thing was 🐧🏒🐧🏒
