Tech makes things easier, right? People can get things done faster, see results, be more productive ?????
The last few weeks (not counting) have driven me nuts, nuttier, and gangbuster nuts.
It’s the internet.
We have what’s called the National Broadband Network. Lots of fancy words to make it sound super-duper groovy, never-go-without-connection cool …
I spend a bit of time each day going through posts and stuff online, but when I try to like or read or click on or … well, any-bloody-thing – then it all slows down to a drag, flickers on and off so I lose any online work I’d done, and the likes and comments never happen ‘cos the connection gets cut off and not saved!
Grrr! Aaarrrrrrgh! and much more.
Trust me, I’m not ignoring anyone, but I can’t stay online for more than ten or so seconds at a time and if I have to wait (that crazy swirling little circle thing I’ve started getting a crush on), then it comes back with no memory of what I was doing, where, or to whom.
I swear and stamp and do a lolly, but it doesn’t help.
However, the world will one day emerge …
Should I hold my breath for the internet will improve?
No, I didn’t think so.
Maybe I’ll see you on the other side.
