don’t give them a moment of your valuable time. they’re not even worth a thought.
The Badger Song (aka a meme so ancient a good chunk of you are about to just be baffled)
Visually breathtaking Disney movies:
13/?? - Hunchback of Notre-Dame
Yes. I love just sitting back and watching Hunchback’s backgrounds. I think that one flopped because it was too dark (or not, I’m not an expert) but I loved that film.
So my computer is still out of commission. I still don’t know if it’s going to be the motherboard (causing me to replace the entire thing because the MB is discontinued) or if it’s the power source. The power source is on the way. I couldn’t buy one locally. Trust me, I checked. I don’t buy enough stuff to pay for Amazon Prime, and of course the boyfriend was nowhere to be found to help out on that front. (I really, really miss Deb. She was always there when I needed her for things like this, and we helped each other out in these little ways. Fuck cancer.)
So I hook up my USB cable with my camera to put stuff up on Ebay. Not only is that my job, but if I’m going to have to shell out $800 for a new computer, I need to have things out there to sell.
For the first 6 hours of my day, the camera works fine. I took 3 batches of photos and got them up on Ebay. Then it decides to not recognize the camera any more. It recognizes the printer/scanner, the external hard drive, and a flash drive. But as far as it’s concerned, the camera doesn’t exist any more. The camera is fine. I tried reboots with the camera on, off, turning the camera on/off, different USB ports, looked all over the internet for a solution, and basically got insanely frustrated after 4 hours of this.
I booted up the old, OLD (as opposed to just one old for the Gateway Relic) laptop with Win 98 on it. It recognizes the external HD because that’s what it was bought for, originally. I put the drivers for the camera and Win 98 on the HD plugged it in, and 2 hours later had everything installed. (Was life ALWAYS this slow? We actually were OK with it? Wow.) Then it fails to recognize the camera, either.
I break out my Nikon Coolpix which is as old as the Gateway relic. The battery flap has to be held shut with my finger because it’s broken and the photos are pretty bad with it, but with some messing with features, it works. Except I can’t find the USB cable.
I go out to the one place in town which might have it and they suggest I look on Ebay. *Facepalm.* They haven’t seen anything like it because it’s so old.
So I finally end up back on the internet looking at card readers. I make sure Wal Mart has one in store at my location (or so they say.) I pick up some flowers for mom because she’s sick, buy a card reader that’s 3X more expensive than the one advertized - which they didn’t have in the store. Natch.
FOR THE MOMENT, it’s recognized by XP and the Heap, here. It will take both cards. Here’s hoping it doesn’t decide to crap out on me after 6 hours because XP did look for drivers which it didn’t need and found none. (There aren’t any…) It’s working for now, so let’s hope it doesn’t decide that it doesn’t exist 6 hours from now.
People without their computers are so bitter. :P
#fuck this tree in particular.
