Why I hate Technology

There are days that I have a Hate/Hate relationship with computers.
Today is one of them.

I got up this morning, checked my email, then went to march in my local Memorial Day Parade, when I got back, I sat down to do some work when I noticed that Firefox (my preferred browser), had an update available so I chose to download and install it.

That was my first mistake.

I then spent the better part of the next four hours attempting to figure out why I now could not access the Intertubes via Firefox. Internet Explorer was able to access the net, so too was Safari and Chrome. Whey then couldn’t Firefox? Well, I called my Internet provider, I called Walt and finally, I went on Firefox’s website and did a help search on the topic and discovered that some anti-virus software sometimes don’t recognize updates to software (like Firefox), and then (without asking), simply block the app. Well that’s what happened to me, and with a simple “allow” I was once again able to see the Intertubes.

Man do I hate technology.
