My old computer crashed and burned. It blew so badly that the computer man gave it CPR to no avail.
(And believe me, it ain't that easy to intubate a computer for a Code Microsoft. Do you put the ET tube into the CD drive? Or do you put it into one of the USB ports? Or perhaps the Ethernet port since that's where its "lifeblood" comes from?.....)
Anyhoo, the CPR didn't work and the computer man "pronounced" it after about $85.00 worth of CPR. So....I went right out and drove the hour and a half drive to the nearest town with a computer store. Once there, I sashayed into the computer store with Visa card in hand---and bought myself a brand spanking new Gateway computer---which the computer salesman told me is more powerful than a speeding locomotive, is able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, is faster than a speeding bullet----and best of all---IT HAS WINDOWS VISTA, yaaaaay!!!!!
At least, so he told me....
But to my everlasting utter mortification, I soon found out that it is NOT Super Computer.
Do you know why?
Guess what Windows Vista left out?
It left out the ability to recognize my digital camera, my Ipod, my printer, my sub-woofer, my speakers, and my own brains.
. If ANYBODY, and I mean ANYBODY, knows how I can figure out how to make my hardware work on this dadgum, dadblame, egg-sucking, porch-sitting, yard-dog-petting, Bisquick-using, greenhorn, from-a-big-city, contraption (and thus "recognize" my hardware)....
I would be eternally grateful to you till my dying day----and I would then personally sing you "The Borrowed Road Nurse Song"--- right here on Tales of a Bohemian Road Nurse....
