The First Day
I want someone to explain why Windows 10 doesn’t look or act the same on my replacement pc.
Nothing is how I remember it, too many things are missing, and nothing seems to want to work. Two days ago, I was blissfully (well almost) happy working away on my old pc, no problems at all, and everything worked the way it was supposed to.
I get that everything is run by apps these days, but is it too much to ask for things like Word to be the same, no matter where you access it?
I must have a different version of Word to the one I had two days ago. A paid version, I might add. I wonder if I would have any luck finding that version?
All of this only adds to the abject disappointment for all the valuable things I lost when the old pc crashed and died.
So many precious photographs have gone. Teaching me, yet again, that EVERYTHING should be backed up, either on the cloud or on USBs.
I am also annoyed that all of this happened right when I finally got my act together and started to enjoy the feeling.
Still, this too, will pass eventually. In the long run, none of it will amount to a hill of beans, will it?
The Second Day
It’s official. I am living in a nightmare…
The first time I switched this pc on, it has rattled loudly as it boots up. This noise goes on for a while, and even when it has finished, it continues to grumble all day. I could live with this, so desperate to have a pc that works. But by the second day, it was getting me down, so I rang the supplier. He assured me that this was not normal and I would need a new one.
There are no words to describe the state of me, but I am hanging on to my sanity and my temper, as I know from experience that I must be patient.
All I can say is this. God help the first person that annoys me in the next few days, as I have a lot of venom to get shot of!
