Just as a supermassive black hole can rip apart a star and eat some of its matter…
so too can various Microsucks Microsoft tools rip up and consume a whole morning’s work.
I spent the whole morning helping a colleague with her PowerPoint presentation. The whole morning, I tell you! And just as I was finishing off the whole thing with a few masterly strokes of my genius, PowerPoint decided to go and quit on me.
Without so much as a good-bye and thanks for all the tender care.
Damaged and never coming back sort of quitting. Laugh in your face, now you have to do three hours of work all over again kind of attitude.
That’s when I exploded (a terrible sight, but I have managed to piece myself together again with glue and lots of tears). I’d like to MicroWave all the dingly micro soft parts of those responsible, play ping pong with them and then feed them to hungry lions!
On a happier note! My live-in geek guru has tweaked my banner (it tickled!) so that it looks better.
What are you ranting about today? Or, if you are feeling good, what are you toasting (apart from marshmallows)?
CLARIFICATION: Yes, good folks, I did save the document… but it does not want to be saved and has thus declared itself to be corrupt and not-openable or even retrievable…
