I hate technology.

My grade 4 teacher used to say that alll the time, when we went into the little computer lab in the library and the kids couldn't work "Kidz Pix" or the computers didn't start up. My grade 4 self always wondered why she bothered with computers if she hated them that much. Did she really need them? So now that my 14 year old self has an iPod, lots of homework, blogs, etc... I can kinda understand why she bothered with something she hated so much. I hate computers. Especially mine. Don't get toshiba laptops. They are evil. First, my computer start short-circuiting or something, and zapping itself into shutdown. Then the button broke. Then the fan broke, so it overheats all the time. Usually when I'm uploading music. Like the new Decemberists cd. That my dad and I roamed this fair city (not really, we went to Megatunes) to get. And my new Beck cd. But I kinda figure that I've already had my fun with the Beck cd, because I spent about an hour putting those cute stickers on it, it looks very nice. Anyways. I've started up my computer about 10 times, and I'm only finished with "O Valencia!".

Somebody up there must really dislike me.

I'm so sorry to hear about your computer problems, and not just because the laptop I bought a month or so ago is a Toshiba. Yikes.

I really hope that you can get it workly properly so you can listen to your music and blog and all those other good things. How is the new Beck cd btw, besides looking cool with all the stickers?

Hopefully your laptop will work fine, mines from a year or so back. They probably made something better quality since mine.

Unfortunatly, it shut down as I was originally typing this... I hope that it won't now! I have 5 songs now imported on the Decemberists CD and I'm crossing my fingers. I've only listened to a couple tracks on the cd, sounds pretty good, kind of experimental, but you never know what the rest of the album will sound like. The stickers are still adorable. =)

Oh computer woes, you have my sympathy. Technology is a frickle beast.
Its funny, thinking about having my own laptop when I was still in high school, we had a family computer, with dial-up. Now, everyone in the family has there own (I have 2)! Crazy how much has changed, yet things seem to be breaking down more than ever!!

I hope you can at least import your tunes :)

I remember when I was younger, with one computer in the house. Now over the years we've got 2 computers and 3 laptops! Talk about changes.

It's shut down on me so far... but I'll have to try again after school. Still crossing my fingers.

Other Toshibas are fine. It's the Satellite you need to worry about.
