Woes of Techno-life

Here's the thing. My parents, they have dial-up. That is painful; I knew this, but I forgot how awful it was. Now my lovely iBook has gone a bit on the fritz, and the surprisingly unhelpful guy at the normally pleasant Genius Bar has taken my computer. I really did plan on posting while on vacation, but here I am, dejectedly posting in the Apple Store, telling you that I don't know when I'll be back. Plus, to add insult to injury my click wheel on the iPod has stopped working, and, well, I'm feeling rather abandoned by technology at the moment.

Anyway. They should send my computer in 5-7 business days. I don't really know what I'll be doing in the meantime. It sucks. Sorry.

Sending you much sympathy. The relatives that I usually stay with have had dial-up for years. But they just got high-speed Internet, right before our big summer trip. I'm very excited. But sending total sympathy to you. Hope you'll be back to normal soon!

We love technology and we hate it. I loved your "feeling abandoned by technology at the moment." That perfectly describes the feeling when your gadgets give up the ghost.

I hope everything is clicking along swimmingly soon.

Good vibes for your computer.

Hey, don't knock my dial-up. It's free. And I did sign up for high speed....I just haven't gotten the stuff yet. And rumors of WSU kicking you off the free service have obviously been greatly exgarated. And, ha, you won't be able to read this til you get to work tomorrow.
