As some of you may remember, I got a new laptop a week or so ago.
I had some slight little problems that took me a mere four or five days, a nervous breakdown and only two bottles of Valium to sort out.
I did however have a chuckle at one stage.
Many many years ago, I remember messing around with an old PC. I switched it on at one stage and it came up with the little error message “Keyboard not found. Press any key to continue.”
Sadly in the intervening years I thought they had sorted out those idiotic little messages.
I am delighted to see they haven’t!
In the course of fighting with Windows and trying to install the damn thing it tried to connect to the Interweb.
It failed [as I knew it would, because I hadn’t installed the drivers and the fucking thing is useless anyway].
It offered a couple of solutions such as searching my hard drive for drivers [which couldn’t be there because I had formatted the fucking thing], but one of the options actually revived my faith in the idiocy of programmers in Microsoft –
“Try on-line for a solution?”
