Where Has She Been?

Did she got kidnapped by a mean green ogre?

Green Orge

Nope!

Pizza Flu

And, NOPE –  neither the seafood-pizza-flu!

No, the reason for my long absence is my wonderful new computer!

awesome new computer

My Computergranpa got old and feeble and I was already looking for a new when my son pleased me to swap with him, because he wanted a smaller one for traveling. Then he bought a stylish new Mac Book and disappeared to Asia….

7Transferring everything on the new computer was a stiff piece of work for a technology-goofy like me! And I had to replace some old software I truly loved into  something  SWEARWORD  SWEARWORD   new. Not every progress is an improvement!

Though I got rectangular eyes, in the end when everything was done new and worked well, I was really proud on me!

Two days I was very happy!

First thing which failed was the internet. No connection!

not a clue

First I tried a couple of things by myself. It’s really great to have some more activities between the normal work and appointments. Aaarrrrrr…..

Next day I called the service hotline. That is also awesome – neat music for free! Do you also love the automatic voice? “If you need support press number one; If you need information’s to your contract press two; If you need a loo press zero zero… ”

Finally I got a bored young men who told me my router is defect. A couple of days later I got a new router and  was very happy to receive hundreds of mails. One of them was most curious! My business website provider wrote me that my account got hacked, spammed with malware and they had closed my website!

Eeek! After some more phone queques, service hotlines and hostwebsites I detected many new things. Had heard  awesome terms like FTP access, spot that my computer-expert was on vacation and started to grasp why it is a good idea to have a list with all the passwords…..

Short version – I HAD NOT A CLUE!!!!

Who could I ask? Nerd missed my message somehow…

And that’s not mentioning, at the same time my old cellphone started to dissolve. I was fine with the blurry display, but finally people couldn’t hear me when I tried to call them. That is nonpractical…

Because I didn’t feel like more hotlines I went into the service shop and asked for a new phone. And the stunning salesperson offered me a phone-bone:

I’m not shure what in this salesperson mind is going on?! Perhaps he thought I’m an elderly lady …or he red in my aura that my technology skills are low….

OK, I’m not the youngest but the device he offered me was offending! I want a smart phone!

To get rid of me he thrusted me a catalog into my hand, which I studied over the weekend.

GOODY a least with catalogs and shopping I’m well versed!

Monday than I was prepared! Prepared for one more call with the service hotline!

I was prepared to complain about the bad service,  hotlines at large, was prepared complaining about my host, the defect router, the viri in my computer, the bottle device at supermarket, the eternal bad whether, the old heating, my ailments and a customer who calls me ten times a day!!!!

Some more hold-on-music made me every minute more prepared ….

A voice like an angel took my phone call. Had a lovely young lady at phone. It was simply impossible to be angry with her…

“…hm, yes, I understand you…, hm, yes, but your contract…hm, hm..”

I answered, “HEY I’m your customer since 2008, I always pay my bills and never asked for a new phone. If I would quit my contract you would send me endless offers. Why don’t you treat me well right now. Than you save me the trouble to quit and you the trouble to send me offers”!

So what shall I tell you? Here we are! My new toy is arrived 🙂Ausstellung 14.sept 044

After this little victory I felt reinvigorated  to grapple with Pandora’s box again

Did you know that angelwings are invisible on earth? This angels look like you and me and appear when you need them urgent.

I know someone, who knows someone, who has a co-worker! And exactly this wonderful co-worker was so friendly to care for me and my naughty computer! THANK YOU THOMAS!!!!! Thank you very much!

I roll out a red carpet for you…

APPLAUS!!!!

thank you

Look what he found inside!!!!

* Trojans! *

Well I mused quite long about these trojans. As much as I know the Greeks tried to conquer Troy. Because the famous invulnerable town walls the war dragged on and on…

Odysseus, member of the ‘Greek-Department’ devised a ruse to shorten the war (…and grabbing some treasures). So THE GREEKS builded the big horse, and THE GREEKS hid inside. The gullible Trojans thought the horse is a present of the gods and pulled it inside their fortress.

Hey cyberworld – I suggest to change the term into GREEKS!

You see some of the prejudices about Germans are not so wrong. We are really wiseacre!

OK, let’s compromise and say – there was an illegal party in my computer and aliens ate my mails for breakfast  😉

But no matter the appellation, Thomas is a detailed perfectionist. He came with the big steamroller and took a clean sweep.

Here we are! Only a couple of weeks later I’m back with my extra clean and superfast computer!!!!

“Inside my video game, all these strange creatures don’t like me 😦  I hope by the end we can sit for a spot of tea”.

A couple of days later he send me this:

“Hey this is a picture of my new wicker deck chairs you were asking about.  Please ignore the bright blue & white flowery table cover that doesn’t go at all” 😉
